Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours
While Marcel Brands has declared that it will be a big summer of signings for Everton, it will also be interesting to find out the fate of some of our current players, namely Idrissa Gueye, Nikola Vlašić, and Henry Onyekuru. After handing in a transfer request earlier in the season, Gueye has seemed to put that all behind him and has been in excellent form as of late, which certainly hasn’t stopped teams from pursuing the 29-year-old midfielder.
Meanwhile, Nikola Vlašić has been on a tear for CSKA Moscow this season, scoring eight goals and tallying four assists in 24 games in all competitions for the Russian side and with recently reported Beşiktaş interested in the 21-year-old, we will have to wait and see how the situation unfolds.
Elsewhere, the talented Henry Onyekuru’s future with the Blues remains on hold, as his long-awaited work permit still has yet to be resolved, while a number of teams have also shown interest in the 21-year-old. Needless to say, this summer will be an exciting one for the Toffees.
