Everton favourites to sign Brighton forward Neal Maupay over Fulham with Nottingham Forest no longer in race for £15million-rated man August 26, 2022 – Posted in: Soccer
Everton are favourites to sign Neal Maupay this summer, talkSPORT understands.
The Brighton forward has not featured at all for Graham Potter’s side this season with an exit on the cards.
He has been with the Seagulls since a £20million move from Brentford in 2019.
Maupay has gone on to score 26 Premier League goals in 102 games.
Nottingham Forest were first linked with Maupay, who is valued at around £15m.
However, talkSPORT understands the Premier League new boys are no longer in the race to sign him.
Everton are in competition with Fulham to sign the player.
The Toffees are in dire need of striking options, with Anthony Gordon forced to play in the No.10 role at the start of the season.
However, they could be losing Gordon this summer with Chelsea willing to pay up to £60million for his services.
Meanwhile, Richarlison was sold to Tottenham in the summer and Dominic Calvert-Lewin is currently injured.
Fulham have Aleksandar Mitrovic, who scored two goals on the opening day against Liverpool, but Maupay would add depth to their squad.
