Everton fullback Nuno Valente is a target for France's Saint-Etienne.

The fit-again Portugal international is top of the shopping list of Saint-Etienne transfers chief Omar Da Fonseca, who has already made contact with Valente's agent.

Da Fonseca expects to learn from Everton in the next 48 hours if they're willing to do business over the 32 year-old.
