Ah! Another week as a fan of “New Everton”, the money-rich, big spenders who keep on being linked to every footballer in the world. No business was done over the weekend, but the Toffees were connected to defenders and strikers galore. The big thing to keep an eye out for: If Barkley is going, he’s going soon. Man your stations! The Blues could be preparing for their second massive sale of the summer. Not so sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing.
