Everton have made an approach to sign Manchester City right-back Bacary Sagna, according to a report.
French magazine Le10 claim the Merseyside giants are one of two Premier League clubs who have made enquiries for the France defender.
It is said that West Ham have also expressed their interest in signing Sagna, whose contract at City expires in the summer.

The English duo face competition for Sagna’s signature from French big hitters Marseille, who signed Dimitri Payet from West Ham for £25million at the end of the January transfer window.
Le10 report in their monthly edition that Everton and West Ham have enquired about an early deal for Sagna, who is free to talk to other clubs about a move in the sumer.
Sagna, who turns 34 next week, is a regular member of the City first-team squad and has made 17 appearances in all competitions this season.
The 65-times France international has played the full 90 minutes of four of City’s last seven Premier League matches, as well as both of their FA Cup games this year.
At Etihad Stadium, he shares the right-back role in Pep Guardiola’s side with fellow veteran Pablo Zabaleta, 32.
Sagna joined City on a free transfer in the summer of 2014 after spending seven years at Arsenal, and has made 78 appearances in all competitions for the Manchester club.
