Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours
Several reputable sources are beginning to report that André Gomes to Everton is a done deal. Now we wait...
In the meantime, many Blues continued to take part in international play yesterday. Dominic Calvert-Lewin was surprisingly left out off the starting lineup, but came on in the 75th minute in England U21s 2-1 loss to France U21s. Kieran Dowell and Jonjoe Kenny did not feature.
Elsewhere, Richarlison was subbed off after 45 due to an apparent thigh injury in Brazil’s shock 0-0 draw against Venezuela. Here’s hoping it was just precautionary and nothing too serious.
