Toffees back in for Tunisian

Everton are reported to have rekindled their interest in Tunisia international striker Francileudo Santos who is ready to leave Toulouse.
The hit-man, who is of Brazilian descent, joined Toulouse last summer in a é¼3 million (£2 million) after five successful seasons at Sochaux.
However, his stay at the Stadium Municipal has turned sour with the 27-year-old managing just three league goals this term.
Indeed, he is by no means a regular having started only 13 times and Toulouse are now ready to cut their losses on the player.
Sochaux have expressed an interest in taking the player back and the clubs' respective presidents, Olivier Sadran and Jean-Claude Plessis, have already held talks over a transfer.
Nancy are also monitoring Santos' situation, as are Everton who made enquiries for the striker back in the January transfer window.
Toffees boss David Moyes was impressed by the player's displays at the African Cup of Nations earlier in the year when he notched four goals for Tunisia.
Toulouse informed the Premiership outfit in January that he was not available, but with his future now seemingly lying away from the club, Everton are ready to enter the race for his services.
