RMC Sport’s Mohamed Bouhafsi told the Football News Show this morning that Premier League side Everton have a long history in terms of their interest in PSG’s central midfielder Clement Chantome.
‘Roberto Martinez likes Clement Chantome. Chantome and Everton is a very long story.’
‘Already when David Moyes was manager, Everton sent a scout to watch Clement Chantome and they liked him.’
‘When Roberto Martinez signed for Everton, the scout told Martinez that we have many possibilities for players to sign and one of them is Clement Chantome.’
‘Roberto Martinez has watched clips of Chantome on video and said something like ‘okay he is a very good player. I want him.”
‘For the moment Everton have not made an offer because they are trying to keep Fellaini and Baines.’
Mohamed went on to say that both Fulham and West Brom are also aware of the player’s availability.
Everton did not put a bid in in time, however, as Toulouse have now snapped the player up on a season long loan.
