Already French side, Rennes, have agreed to the £22million offer made by both Southampton and Everton to price out Kamaldeen while the Toffees are in negotiation to finalise a deal for Ayew before the transfer deadline by midnight on Tuesday.
Everton new manager, Sean Dyche, wants to bolster the attacking department of the side and believes the 33-year-old Ghanaian skipper provides a cheaper option.
Andre has played in the English Premier League with West Ham and Swansea scoring 21 goals in 89 appearances and Everton will be hoping to count on his experience to help them escape relegation.
The Ghana legend Ayew spent six years in playing for both West Ham and Swansea, but despite his age, he showed at the World Cup that he can still perform at the highest level after netting his 24th international goal against Portugal in Qatar.
Ayew became a free agent after he terminated his lucrative $200,000-a-week contract with the Qatari side, Al Sadd.
Everton are in a precarious position in the top flight, they currently occupy the 19th position on the league table with just 15 points from 20 games and without a win since October.
