After the attacker announced his intention to leave Montpellier this summer, Everton and West Ham might now have a free pass at signing English talent.

After the 24-year-old winger told the Ligue 1 club he wants to leave, the French side finished a poor 13th last season, with Mavididi one of the squad's top performers as the former Arsenal academy player collected eight and three assists in the tournament.

Mavididi looks set to return to England after leaving Arsenal to join Juventus, where he later settled in France with Montpellier, where he has become a legend.

Mavididi, who has blossomed into a solid forward in his three years in France, is now deciding to leave Montpellier, and a return to England might be on the cards.

After completing a move from Ligue 1, players from the league have usually performed admirably in the Premier League, and Mavididi, who studied at Arsenal, might be the ideal fit for a side looking for some much-needed firepower in the attack, such as Everton or West Ham.

Frank Lampard might be the clear favourite to sign Mavididi with the Toffees losing Richarlison this summer, especially as West Ham is focusing on signing Armando Broja from Chelsea, which appears to be taking its time.

The departure of Mavididi should give Everton the perfect opportunity to sign him.

The current Everton side lacks that cutting edge up-front, and while Dominic Calvert-Lewin will be back to full fitness for the start of the season, the Merseyside club could still use that something extra in their attack, which is why Mavididi might be a great signing for the Goodison Park side.

Mavididi, a former England youth international with speed and an eye for goal, is ready to return to England and compete in the Premier League, and for Everton, the former England youth international has the ability and potential to be an incredible partner alongside Calvet-Lewin in the frontline.
