As Alex Iwobi nears a £20 million move to Fulham, Everton and West Ham are negotiating a loan agreement for Maxwel Cornet, while the Hammers are trying to recruit Filip Kostic to fill the vacancy.

Maxwel Cornet, a winger for West Ham, is being negotiated with by Everton.

While at Burnley, Sean Dyche collaborated with the Ivory Coast international and is considering a loan.

If Cornet were to go, West Ham is preparing a move for Juventus’ Filip Kostic to fill the vacancy.

Everton have looked to the out-of-favour wide player to replace Alex Iwobi, who is nearing a £20million move to Fulham.

The Cottagers are advancing in a deal for the 27-year-old who is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury sustained during the Toffees 1-0 defeat to Wolves.

The former Arsenal winger started all 38 games for Everton last season as his transition to a central role helped the club stave off relegation and would be a huge loss for Dyche’s side.

As a result, Everton are considering a move for the 26-year-old Cornet, who joined the Hammers from Burnley, where he played under Dyche, last summer but has failed to nail down a starting spot.

Cornet has been in all three of David Moyes’ match day squads but has only seen one minute of action in their first outing against Bournemouth.

Dyche’s side survived a scare in their second round Carabao Cup win against League Two Doncaster which produced the side’s first goals of the season.

In the league, Everton sit rock bottom having lost all three games to nil but the addition of striker Beto, who scored on debut, and the potential arrival of Cornet could provide the attacking threat missing thus far.

Everton have also trengthened on the flanks with new summer signings Arnaut Danjuma and Jack Harrison. Fulham manager Silva meanwhile has been calling for extra support in bolstering his squad after losing Aleksandar Mitrovic while Bayern Munich are trying to prise away £70m-rated midfielder Joao Palhinha.

They have agreed a deal with Sevilla for Lucas Ocampos but are waiting for the player to give his approval while they have also added Swansea goalkeeper Steven Benda.
