Everton have witnessed resurgence in their form since Allardyce took charge at the Goodison Park but the club hierarchy are well aware that they need to add more firepower to the Toffees squad.

And Allardyce is also eyeing to hijack Arsenal’s move for Steven N’Zonzi, who has proved his mettle at Sevilla since making a switch to the La Liga club from Stoke in 2015.

N’Zonzi have worked with Allardyce during their time together at Blackburn and is now eyeing to seal a loan move until the end of the season.

Big Sam hopes to beat Arsenal to N’Zonzi

N’Zonzi has fallen out of favour at Sevilla this term and admitted earlier this month that he wants to make move away from the La Liga club.

He said: “My future is clearly away from Seville. The only thing that disappoints me is the way it has ended.”
