Ecuele Manga: The Lorient defender wants to play in England in the next season

The Gabonese international was linked with a move to the Toffees in 2011, and the 24-year-old is said to be interesting new manager Roberto Martinez.

Manga's agent, Yvan Le Mee, claimed his client was interesting Liverpool in 2010, while the player himself states that Martinez was looking in his direction whilst in charge of Wigan.

"I want to play in England," Manga declared.

"Wigan were interested in me the last two seasons, but I wanted a big challenge and I was not ready for that.

"My agent is talking to various English clubs so things can move quickly. Everton could be great for me and they are a huge club in England.

"I will realise my dream playing for such a club."
