Everton favourite hints that long-term stay could be on the cards

By Henry Jackson Andre Gomes admits it is an “honour” for him to be playing for Everton, providing supporters with hope that he could sign a permanent deal. The Portuguese has been a great addition since joining on loan from Barcelona in the summer, adding quality and dominance to the midfield. Many Blues fans are desperate to see the 25-year-old make his temporary switch a permanent one, with manager Marco Silva seemingly of the same opinion. Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Gomes admits he is in a good place at the moment: I am feeling really comfortable here. We are like a family and it is a huge pleasure and honour to be here and playing for this badge. It is really important when you get good feedback from the supporters, you feel important and it is a good thing personally. I am one hundred per cent sure [I can enjoy my football at Everton]. That is why I signed for the club. I arrived injured but still received huge support from the people and I am enjoying every day as an Evertonian. Gomes struggled for playing time during a disjointed spell at …read more

Could Everton change up theirs tactics ahead of Monday’s fixture against Watford? Check out our line-up for the game

By Alex Hives The corresponding fixture last campaign was most certainly my personal highlight of the season. David Unsworth’s big moment came as Leighton Baines netted from the spot in added time to seal the win before Sam Allardyce came in shortly after and entered our club into a very dark period. Getting the win was the least that Rhino deserved after some of his players seemingly refused to play for him in the weeks leading up to the game, most prominently in the Lyon, Atalanta and Southampton fixtures. This season however, a very different Everton side will take on a very different Watford side under very different circumstances, all of those said circumstances being very spicy indeed. Marco Silva takes on his old club with their old star man lining up in the Royal Blue, while one of Goodison’s prodigal sons returns in the yellow of Watford, and it isn’t Tom Cleverley. Richarlison vs Gerard Deulofeu is merely a sub-plot in what is going to be a very soap-opera-esque fixture, but one that, most importantly, we must win. Coming off of a disappointing result against Newcastle, I’ll make a few changes. The post Everton v Watford – Alex’s XI appeared first on Read Everton. …read more

Everton star could be set for surprise January exit

By Luke Osman Mason Holgate could be loaned out by Everton in the January transfer window, according to a report from the Mirror. The young defender has been utilised on a sporadic basis by manager Marco Silva this season and has found regular opportunities in the first team hard to come by. This has prompted speculation surrounding Holgate’s immediate future on Merseyside, with recent reports indicating that he spend the second half of the campaign elsewhere. Holgate has struggled to emerge as a key man for Silva following his summer appointment. The versatile defender finds himself behind Yerry Mina, Michael Keane and loanee Kurt Zouma in the pecking order of centre-backs. The England Under-21 international is set to be high in demand when the January transfer window does come around, however. The Mirror claim that Everton have already received attention from clubs in the top two tiers of English football regarding a potential loan move. Holgate, 22, has started four Premier League matches this season. The post Everton could let Holgate leave on loan appeared first on Read Everton. …read more

Everton target’s agent discusses his future in Portugal

By Luke Osman Everton target Eder Militao is happy at FC Porto, according to his agent Ulisses Jorge. The Toffees have been linked with a move to sign the defender in recent times as his services continue to become increasingly sought after. Militao has enjoyed a good season in Liga NOS with his side and has subsequently been subjected to plenty of speculation, with clubs across Europe understood to be battling for his signature. Everton, along with the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea, have been touted as a potential destination for the 20-year-old, who arrived at Porto only in the summer transfer window. The youngster came through the ranks at Sao Paulo and was snapped up by the Portuguese giants after a string of impressive performances in his homeland of Brazil. Militao’s agent has been discussed his client’s future but had bad news for potential suitors who are eyeing him ahead of the January transfer window. Jorge, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News, told O Jogo that the defender is comfortable at Porto amid the speculation of late. He said: All these clubs already had interest in Eder when he was at Sao Paulo. Since the player moved to FC Porto, nobody came to me. Eder is …read more

Everton are set to appoint Fleetwood Town technical director Gretar Steinsson in recruitment role

By Elliott Cuff Fleetwood Town technical director Gretar Steinnsson has left his role and is expected to join Everton’s recruitment team, according to Fleetwood Weekly News. The former Iceland international will link-up with director of football Marcel Brands, in a bid to increase Everton’s recruitment of Football League talent. While neither club has confirmed the move yet, FWN understand that Fleetwood will receive compensation. The former Bolton defender joined the Fishermen as technical director in 2015, and has worked alongside a number of managers over his three years in the role. However, Steinsson’s role changed considerably after the arrival of Joey Barton last summer, with the former England international wanting much more control over transfers. Since his appointment, Steinsson hasn’t been involved with the first-team, instead focussing on the club’s academy. With Everton keen to continue increasing their recruitment within the lower leagues of English football, Steinsson’s appointment serves as another positive move under Farhad Moshiri’s regime.

By Vijievan Jeevathayalan Everton manager Marco Silva has revealed that the club are very keen on making Andre Gomes’ loan move from Barcelona permanent next summer, but has acknowledged money may be a sticking point.

The Portuguese international’s form has prompted Silva to claim the Merseyside club are looking… …read more

Everton braced for interest in winger over the coming months

By Ryan Darby RB Leipzig are expected to renew their interest in Everton winger Ademola Lookman. German outlet SportBild, as cited on Sport Witness, have identified the English winger as one of Leipzig’s targets for the upcoming transfer windows. Lookman has been a target for the Bundesliga side for some time now, but Everton have managed to ward off any interest over the summer. The winger spent time on loan in Germany last season and left a lasting impression on the Bundesliga outfit. Leipzig chased his signature throughout the summer and forced Everton into turning down numerous bids for his services. With Marco Silva keen to implement him into his Everton squad, they managed to keep hold of the player despite the big-money offers that were on the table. However, his long-term future is still believed to be unclear, with regular playing time in the Premier League far from guaranteed for Lookman this season. He is yet to start in the Premier League under Silva but has made eight appearances off the bench. The post Leipzig set to renew Lookman interest appeared first on Read Everton. …read more
