Jean-Jacques Gosso - Everton is a great club
Jean-Jacques Gosso has replied to rumours linking him with a move to Everton by confirming that he would look favourably upon such a move.
Gosso said, "It's great to hear Everton are interested, they are a great club. It's always been my dream to play in the Premier League and prove myself among the best players in the world.
"If David Moyes is interested in me I must be doing something right.
"Everton are one of the biggest clubs in England, but I have heard nothing official as yet. I am currently in France waiting for pre-season to start."
Orduspor chairman Nedim Türkmen told Turkish media agency, AA, "We want to sell Gosso, a couple of clubs are currently in talks with us over a possible move.
"Everton are in negotiations with us over a possible transfer, its very likely that Gosso will be leaving us," he said.
The 29-year-old defensive midfielder joined Orduspor on a free transfer from Monaco last season.
Gosso made 23 appearances for the Black Sea club last season and was involved in all of the Ivory Coast's African Cup of Nations games.
Gosso has two-years remaining on his contract and is currently valued in the region of €3 million.
Orduspor are managed by experienced Argentinian coach Héctor Cuper. The club is based in the city of Ordu located in the central Black Sea region of Turkey.
