Everton are considering a move for Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis before the transfer deadline.

The Daily Mail says Everton are considering a bid for Gomis after Romelu Lukaku injured his ankle against Liverpool on Tuesday night.

They need another strike option as Lacina Traore is still some way off with his hamstring injury and Arouna Kone is out for most of the season.

Gomis is out of contract in the summer and ready to leave after enduring a strained relationship with Lyon management.
