Clement Chantome’s agent has confirmed to Foot Mercato that his client is an Everton target.
‘Why was Clement Chantome not in the squad for the Trophee des Champions? Why was he not in the squad vs Real Madrid? We do not know. Ask PSG.’
‘He is part of the squad, but if there are other options we will look at them. We have already had discussions with PSG. We have been very straight with them from the beginning. Clement Chantome has never said ‘I want to leave’. When you are a Parisian, and you support the club then why would you? He loves PSG. However, when you send him a sign at the beginning of the season like leaving him out of the squad, does he have a choice?‘
‘Everton’s interest still exists and there are several other English clubs who like Clement (Fulham and West Brom most likely). However, for a deal to be done, bids have to be made. Nothing is moving at the moment.’
‘In France a lot was written about Chantome and Marseille, but, in effect, very little was true. The deal was never really on the table for Clement. We let it go, but too much was written and it might have ruined it.’
‘In France, two Ligue 1 clubs are currently interested in Clement.’
