Everton eyes on Emana

Toulouse midfielder Achille Emana has caught the eye of Everton's network of scouts.
Toffees chief David Moyes is eager to build a squad capable of competing in next year's UEFA Champions League and has instructed his scouts to compile a list of likely targets.
It is believed that Emana has caught the eye in Ligue 1 this term, with the Cameroon's star's attacking instincts from midfield helping the club retain their top flight status.
Emana signed a new deal late last year and is tied to Toulouse until the summer of 2008, but he did admit that he craves the chance to showcase his talents in the Champions League.
Ligue 1 big guns Lyon and Paris Saint Germain were both linked with bids for the midfielder, but failed to follow up their interest, and the way could be clear for Moyes to push through a deal if he believes the midfielder would add a new dimension to his Goodison Park squad.
Montpellier, meanwhile, have swooped to sign defender Ludovic Clement from Toulouse.
The defender has moved on from Stade Municipal after signing a three-year deal with Montpellier.
