Last year, Moussa Dembele was linked with big-money moves to elite clubs in the Premier League and Europe.
In the end, though, the Celtic forward joined Lyon in a rather modest £20m deal on transfer deadline day, as reported by the Daily Mail.
The cost of the deal has got some Everton fans talking, with a number of them wondering whether the Toffees should have tried to strike a deal.
During his time at Celtic, Dembele found the back of the net 51 times in 94 appearances, but his form tailed off towards the end.
Hamstring problems affected his progress, and he left the Scottish champions on a sour note by forcing a move away.
Everton had a busy transfer window of their own as they strengthened defence, midfield and attack.

Dembele opted against signing for a Premier League club, but instead decided to return to his homeland of France.
On Reddit, fans debated about whether or not the club missed an opportunity.
