Everton: Announced appointments to board of directors

Everton have joined Lyon and Brighton in showing an interest in Auxerre midfielder Brahim Konate, according to the Daily Mail.

Konate only turned professional in the summer, but the 19-year-old is already said to be attracting interest having started the last three games for Auxerre in Ligue 2, all of which ended in victory.

Lyon have also ‘taken a keen interest’ in the box-to-box midfielder, while Championship title chasers Brighton have also had the player watched in recent weeks, the Mail claims.

Auxerre, relegated from the top flight in France in 2012, finished ninth in the second tier last season.
