Lille make approach to released West Ham fullback Evra

Former Manchester United captain Patrice Evra is being offered a return to Ligue 1.

Released by West Ham United at the end of last season, Evra has been sounded out by Lille this week. No offer was made, but enquiries were lodged - which the veteran fullback has welcomed.

Le 10 Sport says Lille are now considering putting a contract offer to Evra next week.

The former France captain already has a lucrative proposal from Saudi Arabia, but he is keen to continue his career in Europe for now.

Evra was dumped by Olympique Marseille before Christmas after physically attacking a fan in Portugal.
