Nottingham Forest have reportedly failed to agree personal terms with Everton target Maxwel Cornet over a move this summer. According to talkSPORT, the Burnley attacker could not find an agreement with the Premier League newcomers while the Toffees have had an opening bid for him rejected. That said, they do have one thing working in their favour as they have a five-year deal agreed with him which includes £67,000 per-week wages.

    Cornet would undoubtedly be a terrific addition for Everton this summer and they must do all they can to get Burnley to reduce their asking rate. However, they now need to be aware of Newcastle’s interest in the player as they’ve got super deep pockets. They’re also a club on the rise, unlike Everton who were fighting a relegation battle last season. The financial situation of the club also means that they cannot really match up with the Magpies’ spending power and it’s going to be extremely difficult if Newcastle as seriously pursuing his services.

    Merseyside club Everton are plotting moves for Chelsea striker Armando Broja and Southampton fullback Kyle Walker-Peters during this summer’s transfer window. This is according to the report from the Daily Mirror which stated that the Toffees are considering making a move for Broja and Walker-Peters who were teammates at Southampton last season. Albanian international star Broja spent a season-long loan at Southampton having joined them last season from parent club Chelsea.

    Everton have financial constraints and they would need to receive permission from the Premier League to press ahead with their pursuit of Walker-Peters and Broja. The Toffees have not been able to back manager Frank Lampard in this summer’s transfer window till date. The only major arrival this summer is James Tarkowski who has joined on a free transfer after his contract at Burnley ended. The one-cap England international was a regular for the Clarets for several years, but he was unable to stop their relegation from the English top flight at the end of last season. Burnley were relegated to the English Championship from the Premier League alongside Norwich City and Watford. (more…)


    Everton manager Frank Lampard is keen to raid his former club Chelsea for two of their players if reports in the British media are anything to go by. It has been reported that the Chelsea legend want to sign both Billy Gilmour and Conor Gallagher. Lampard is saddled with the responsibility of rebuilding the Everton squad after the Merseyside giants flirted with relegation for several months of the just concluded Premier League season.

    Ex-Derby County and Chelsea manager Lampard took the Everton job in January after Spanish tactician Rafael Benitez was sacked for poor results over the course of several months having made a bright start to his reign as the Everton manager. Benitez was made the Everton manager last summer and he barely lasted six months before his dismissal for poor results. Lampard replaced him and he was in a relegation battle for virtually the remainder of the season before Premier League safety was achieved with one game left. Everton sealed another season in the Premier League after coming from behind to beat Crystal Palace 3-2 at home thanks to the goals from Michael Keane, Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the second half. Andre Ayew doubled the lead for Palace after Jean Philippe-Mateta had given them an advantage to ensure that the Eagles took a two-nil lead at the break. (more…)


    Merseyside outfit Everton are now two points from safety after they recorded a crucial victory over European champions Chelsea on Sunday. Chelsea legend and Everton boss Frank Lampard was able to mastermind a big win against his former club to aid the Toffees’ battle to stay in the English top flight.

    Everton came into the Chelsea game with a five-point deficit to Leeds United who are occupying the last safe place on the Premier League log. They hadcome into the just concluded weekend with a five-point deficit to Leeds United and a two-point deficit to Burnley who were occupying the last safe place before their comeback win at Watford on Saturday. Burnley were replaced by Leeds United as regards the last safe spot on the league table thanks to the win over Watford, while Leeds United were beaten heavily at home by title chasers Manchester City in their own Premier League game at the weekend. Burnley and Leeds United have the same points (34) after 34 league games, but the latter has an inferior goal difference in comparison to the former. On their part, Everton have 32 points from 33 league games. (more…)


    The relegation battle in the Premier League promises to be an exciting one ahead of the final month of the season with Burnley and Everton battling for one slot as things stand in the division. Watford and Norwich City are second from bottom and bottom respectively on the Premier League log and it would take a miracle for the two teams to avoid the drop to the English Championship at the end of this season thus leaving either Burnley or Everton to fill the remaining relegation spot.

    Everton had a four-point cushion over Burnley who are the last team in the three-team relegation zone ahead of the Premier League games last weekend. Burnley were able to close the gap to three points after picking up a 1-1 draw at London club West Ham United, while Everton  were not in action due to the FA Cup semifinal commitment of opponents Crystal Palace thus leaving them with a game in hand over the Clarets.

    It’s been barely two months since Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek signed for Everton on loan for the rest of the season but talks have already making the rounds that he could be keen to tie down his future at Goodison Park. Since he was signed from Dutch Eredivisie League giants Ajax some months ago by Manchester United, the Netherlands international midfielder has failed to convince his past and current managers Olé Gunnar Solksjaer and Ralf Ragnick, that he has what it takes to thrive in the Premier League and force his way into the starting eleven. It went from bad to worse for Van de Beek at Old Trafford and it had to be agreed upon that the solution would be to send him out on loan.

    Although several clubs made their intentions known to snap up the 24-year-old since during the summer, United refused to go into any talks that would lead to the player leaving the club. But, with time running out for the Dutch star to start playing games ahead of earning a spot in Netherlands’ FIFA World Cup squad later this year, he had to look for greener pastures. Everton came knocking and as soon as the Merseyside outfit tabled an offer that suited both United and the player, in no time, a deal was agreed and he made the switch to Everton in January.

    Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte was full of praises for Dele Alli who left the club to join Merseyside giants Everton on the last day of the recently concluded winter transfer window. While speaking with the media ahead of the FA Cup fifth round clash with Brighton and Hove Albion at home on Sunday, Conte said that new Everton midfielder Dele Alli needed a new challenge away from Spurs. TheEngland international moved from Spurs to Everton earlier this week in a deal that could fetch the North London team up to €40m based on the various clauses inserted into the transfer.


    Dele Alli had two-and-a-half years left on his Tottenham Hotspur contract before he left the club to join Chelsea legend Frank Lampard at Goodison Park.


    Merseyside outfit Everton have a tricky FA Cup third round tie at English Championship club Hull City this weekend as they try to arrest the poor form that has seen them win just once in Premier League football over the past three months.


    Everton boss Rafael Benitez was an unpopular appointment last summer and he’s under pressure to turn things around with the Toffees languishing in the bottom six on the Premier League log at the moment.


    The Everton trio of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Yerry Mina and Tom Davies will miss the Premier League clash with hosts Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park later this week as the Toffees try to build on their comeback win over Arsenal in their last league outing.


    England international Calvert-Lewin scored in each of his first three games this season and he has been missing since the third game of the season due to a thigh problem. The Everton attacker picked up the thigh issue during the third league game of the season, a 2-0 away win over Brighton and Hove Albion.


    Everton manager Rafael Benitez is a man under pressure after the Merseyside giants continued their losing run at Wolves on Monday night. Everton were beaten 2-1 at Wolves as the Toffees suffered a third consecutive loss in the Premier League.

    The appointment of Benitez as the new Everton manager was not well received by the fans due to his affiliation with Merseyside rivals Liverpool but he was able to silence his critics in the opening weeks of the season with one defeat in the first seven league games. However, things have changed in just three games. Pressure is mounting on Benitez after three straight defeats. (more…)
