It appears that young winger Ademola Lookman could be on his way out of Everton after all despite the best attempts of Marcel Brands and Marco Silva. There also appears to be some demand for Yannick Bolasie, in which case the Blues will go into the new Premier League season with Theo Walcott and Richarlison as the starting wingers and little else of substance behind them.

Meanwhile, it appears Borussia Dortmund have decided that former Chelsea man Andre Schurrle is surplus to requirements after a couple of underwhelming seasons. Funnily enough, BVB are looking to make a move for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, who as also been linked with Everton too.

According to the Mail, Dortmund have offered Schurrle to Palace and Everton, with Fulham apparently also interested in bringing the winger back to England.

The 27-year-old German international had 14 goals and 3 assists in 65 Chelsea appearances before switching to Wolfsburg in February 2015 (13 goals, 10 assists, 63 games), and then on to BVB in the summer of 2016 (8 goals, 9 assists, 51 games).

The winger has been injury-plagued over the last couple of years, but here is what his stats look like for that time period, compared to Theo Walcott.
