Watford have rejected a £30m offer from Everton for midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure and have no intention of selling to the Toffees.

The 26-year-old joined the Hornets in 2016 and played under current Everton boss Marco Silva at Vicarage Road.

It is understood Frenchman Doucoure would not be willing to consider a move to a club outside the Premier League's established top six teams.

Silva has said he wants to sign more players before Thursday's deadline.

Moise Kean, Andre Gomes, Fabian Delph and Jonas Lossl have moved to Goodison Park this summer, but Everton are looking for a central midfielder after Idrissa Gueye's exit to Paris St-Germain.
