According to the football transfer rumours in Spanish Media, Villarreal forward Cedric Bakambu is interesting Everton manager Ronald Koeman.
Cedric Bakambu has joined Villarreal CF from Bursaspor for a fee in the region of 7.5 million euros in 2015. The 25 year-old has a valid contract with Villarreal CF until June 2020.
Since his arrival from Bursaspor, Cedric Bakambu has scored 26 goals and provided five assists in 74 games for Villarreal CF, including only four goals and provided one assist in 24 games in all competitions this season.
The 25-year-old is considered to be one of the best forwards in La Liga.
Cedric Bakambu has represented France at Under-18, Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 38 caps and scoring eight goals, before making his senior international debut for Democratic Republic of the Congo in May 2016.
