Report: Everton interested in Marseille winger Lucas Ocampos

Lucas Ocampos has been a regular for Marseille this season.

Everton have been linked with a move for Marseille winger Lucas Ocampos. According to Calciomercato, Everton are keeping their tabs on Ocampos ahead of a potential summer swoop.

Ocampos is currently at Marseille but his contract with the French club expires in 2020. Marseille could be tempted into selling him this summer to avoid losing him for nothing.

Marco Silva is weighing up a swoop for Ocampos to strengthen his options in attacking midfield.

The Argentine midfielder could join fellow South Americans Richarlison and Bernard in the attacking midfield department.

Prior to that, the 24-year-old was at River Plate and he has also had loan spells in Italy with Genoa and AC Milan since moving to Marseille.

But this season, Ocampos has been a regular for the Ligue 1 club, who sit fifth in the French top-flight. In 36 games, he has scored five goals and provided eight assists.

In his last outing, Ocampos set Mario Balotelli up for an equaliser in a home game against Nantes, although Marseille ended up losing 2-1.

With Marseille now looking set to miss out on European qualification, a new challenge could appeal to Ocampos. Everton could be the next move for the former Argentina youth starlet.
