Aston Villa & Everton Go Head to Head In French Forward Chase

Premier League pair keen on Bordeaux forward.

Aston Villa and Everton are keen on Bordeaux forward Yoan Gouffran, who is set to be sold in January.
The Premier League pair believe they can snap up the striker on the cheap when the transfer window re-opens.

And Bordeaux are ready to cash in on the former France U-21 international in January as they do not want to see him go for nothing next summer.


Adaptable forward Yoan Gouffran has admitted he is unlikely to sign a new Bordeaux contract and as such has sparked a great deal of interest in his services from across Europe.

The 26 year old former Caen man has spent the past four years at the Stade Chaban Delmas but despite Bordeaux’s unbeaten start to the current Ligue 1 campaign the forward wants to leave.

A move to either Aston Villa or Everton may interest the former French Under 21 international and of the two it would appear that Paul Lambert’s need for fresh attacking options may exceed those of Toffees boss David Moyes, despite new striker Christian Benteke getting off the mark on the weekend.

Everton brought in attack pair Steven Naismith and Kevin Mirallas to add to in-form Croatian Nikica Jelavic whereas Aston Villa have seen Darren Bent draw a blank from four Premier League starts and have only seen one goal this term come from their striking compliment.

Gouffran can play effectively on the right wing or in a striking role.
