Everton could sell Amadou Onana for over £60 million this summer.
The Toffees could part ways with the midfielder but will demand more than Romeo Lavia’s £60m price tag, according to BBC Sport.
Southampton had initially asked for £50m to sell Lavia following their relegation to the Championship, however reports now now claimed that they could rake in up to £60m for his signature – with Chelsea and Liverpool currently battling it out to land the Belgian.
Everton could look to take advantage of the rising cost of players this summer, having previously wanted around £55m for Onana.
The 21-year-old has recently been linked with a move to Manchester United after a brilliant debut campaign in the Premier League.
BBC Sport have claimed that Everton are under no pressure to sell their star players and will only part ways with the former Lille man for over £27m more than what they paid last summer.

Everton seem extremely likely to keep hold of Amadou Onana
Everton’s previous demands for Amadou Onana already seemed steep, though the midfielder’s latest price increase will surely deter any interest in his signature.
Reports had already claimed that the Red Devils couldn’t afford to splash out on Onana and it seems extremely unlikely that they would be willing to cough up the £60m.
While the Toffees could well keep hold of the Belgian, it is likely to go down to the last few days. There are a number of clubs desperate to bolster their midfield and the current transfer market may force their hands before deadline day.
