Andre Gomes was the Blues best player, and possibly the best on the pitch from either side, and despite the large release clause Barcelona have on him, Marcel Brands will not be deterred. [Echo]

In other transfer news, looks like Glasgow Rangers and their manager Steven Gerrard are serious about taking Kieran Dowell on loan in January. [Mirror]

Hull City winger Jarrod Bowen is a name the Blues the have been linked with in the past, especially since he played for Marco Silva. A number of Premier League sides are scouting him. [The 72]

We had the FA Cup Third Round draw yesterday, the stage that Premier League clubs enter the competition. The Blues got a pretty favourable matchup, hosting League Two side Lincoln City. [EFC]

In a quirk of fate, the owner of Lincoln City is actually a diehard Evertonian, and will definitely need one of those half-and-half scarves for the occasion. [Lincolnshire Live]
