Leicester City are said to be in advanced talks on signing midfielder Boubakary Soumare while Liverpool on Friday confirmed they had reached an agreement to sign defender Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig.
Sevilla center-half Jules Kounde is said to be of interest to both Manchester City and Man United.
Everton are looking for a new right-back, who will be Seamus Coleman’s long-term successor, and also want a winger to add pace and a threat to the team’s attack next season.
We highlight here four players who could interest the Blues, ahead of France against Holland in the quarterfinals of the European Under-21 Championships on Monday.
Dagba made his debut for Paris Saint Germain and has played 71 times for the French giants.
But the young defender was forced to share the duties of right-back with Alessandro Florenzi on loan this quarter.
PSG have an option to buy Florenzi but reports say they have to pass up the opportunity and are more interested in Inter Milan’s Achraf Hakimi.
Dagba’s PSG contract runs until June 2024.

Still just 20, Kalulu has only made 18 appearances for AC this season, but has shown his versatility by playing a series of Serie A appearances at center-back.
Being able to play in several positions is one of Carlo Ancelotti’s values.
Milan only signed Kalulu last summer, from Lyon, on a free transfer. He is under contract until 2025.
