Neal Maupay is a man in demand this summer with three Premier League clubs battling for his signature.
The Brighton forward has not featured at all for Graham Potter’s side this season as an exit nears.
He has been with the Seagulls since a £20million move from Brentford in 2019.
Maupay has gone on to score 26 Premier League goals in 102 games.
Nottingham Forest had been leading the race to sign the striker, who is valued at around £15m.
Steve Cooper’s side have undergone a massive overhaul this summer with 14 signings so far, with a number of names still likely to head through the door.
The club hope Maupay will be one of them, bringing in vital Premier League experience.
However, talkSPORT understands that Everton and Fulham have joined the race for his signature.
The Toffees are in dire need of striking options, with Anthony Gordon forced to play in the No.10 role at the start of the season.
Richarlison was sold to Tottenham in the summer, while Dominic Calvert-Lewin is injured.
Fulham have Aleksandar Mitrovic, who scored two goals on the opening day against Liverpool, but Maupay would add depth to their squad.
