Virgil Van Dijk (left) is the latest player Everton are linked to - Dean Mouhtaropoulos

Some old rumors have been struck out (Hoarau) while some new, interesting ones have crept in.

Well folks. The transfer window is in full force and I'm excited to say that Everton have... done absolutely nothing. Not even a loan. But the good news is that there are finally some new rumors to possibly get excited about.

Yes I know we all hate the same stupid rumors with no basis that the media usually puts out. But its always good to see some new names just to freshen things up a bit.

On to the links:
