Everton have registered their interest with Olympique Marseille for Lucho Gonzalez.

Everton have approached Marseille for the Argentine, who is likely to leave in January, as they seek a replacement for Mikel Arteta, now of Arsenal.

Marseille president Vincent Labrune has informed Everton he wants £2.5 million for the midfield schemer.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits he tried for Gonzalez in August.
