Everton and Lille remain in talks over the transfer of midfielder Amadou Onana with Everton also pushing to complete a deal to bring Idrissa Gana Gueye back to Goodison Park.
Talks are progressing quickly over the transfer for Onana after Everton agreed a fee for the 20-year-old.
The player is on Merseyside to undergo a medical.
Everon will need the deal done by noon on Friday if Onana is to play in Saturday’s Premier League opener against Chelsea.
West Ham had a fee of £33.5m agreed with Lille, but personal terms with the player proved an issue.
Meanwhile, the deal to bring Gueye back to Goodison Park from Paris Saint-Germain is at a very advanced stage.
