Everton have now made an offer for Almeria centre-forward El Bilal Toure as the Blues look to strengthen their attacking options.
That is according to journalist Sacha Tavolieri, who took to Twitter to break the news, though he also states that fellow Premier League clubs are interested.
Indeed, Tavolieri states that Fulham, Nottingham Forest and Wolves may be ‘keen to join the fight’, while Serie A side Atalanta also retain an interest.
However, El Bilal Toure could be a very interesting alternative and at just 21-years-old he could be an exciting prospect at Goodison Park.

With seven goals in 21 games for Almeria last season, Toure’s ratio of a goal every three games is an impressive return, with the young player scoring the winner against La Liga champions Barcelona back in February.
El Bilal Toure bid by Everton shows intent from Sean Dyche
With Ellis Simms, Demarai Gray and Neal Maupay all linked with Goodison Park exits, the need for striking reinforcements is even more pressing than it already was and Toure could be a great addition to Sean Dyche’s squad.
Indeed, the surprise bid is a massive commitment for a club in a precarious financial position, so El Bilal Toure must be a player Everton really want this summer.
