Chelsea and Arsenal are reportedly both still in the hunt for Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes despite suggestions that Everton are firmly at the head of the queue.
The 22-year-old, who has scored once in 34 appearances for his French club this season, is believed to be a leading target for Everton ahead of this summer's transfer window.
The Toffees are thought to be in a strong position when it comes to the Brazilian, but according to ESPN, both Chelsea and Arsenal are still battling to secure the centre-back's signature.
The report claims that Carlo Ancelotti's side have already made a £30m offer, but Lille are hopeful that interest from elsewhere will help drive the price up in the coming weeks.
Magalhaes only signed a contract extension with his French club in February, meaning that he is currently tied to Christophe Galtier's side until the end of the 2022-23 campaign.
