Premier League side Everton have met up with representatives from Paris Saint-Germain to discuss their interest in signing Edinson Cavani, according to reports.

Wayne Rooney, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Sandro Ramirez, Davy Klaassen, Michael Keane and Jordan Pickford all joined the Toffees before the transfer deadline.

However, they failed to replace Romelu Lukaku – who moved to Manchester United for £75million – with an out-and-out striker.

There was reportedly interest in Olivier Giroud, Christian Benteke and Diego Costa but nothing materialised and Ronald Koeman will be keen to explore the market for a centre-forward in January.

Tuttomercatoweb claims that Everton have held a meeting with PSG over the possibility of taking Cavani to Goodison Park.

It is claimed in El Pais that Cavani sent a message to Neymar following his arrival at the club, saying: “And who is this? Do you think you’re (Lionel) Messi?”

While there was a couple of controversial moments in PSG’s recent victory over Lyon when firstly Dani Alves wouldn’t let Cavani take a free-kick as he wanted Neymar to do the honours.

Before Cavani insisted he took a penalty over Neymar  – which he subsequently missed – and it is rumoured all is not well between the players.
