The boss’ reaction.

The Blues have reportedly made an official offer for Pierre-Emile Højbjerg. [RBM]

However, it looks like Southampton are looking for double that, and Tottenham Hotspur are interested too. [Evening Standard]

I am really happy with him [Branthwaite], he is really young, a kid. But he showed quality and personality and character. He is really calm with the ball, really comfortable, and really aggressive without the ball. He can be a fantastic player for us,” says Ancelotti. [EFC]

After failing to complete a move last summer, could the Blues be back in for Wilfried Zaha? [Daily Mail]

I just have to do my job - it’s simple as that. As a forward and a player coming off the bench, you need to be able make an impact when you can and be an option for the team. Luckily for me, it managed to get the result. It’s a very important goal in an important moment because we need to try and bounce back and play for something [for the rest of the season],” says Theo Walcott. [EFC]

I understand as a local lad what it means to Everton fans and what they want to see in an Everton player. I notice that and I’ll try my best to give them as much as I can,” says Anthony Gordon. [Sky Sports]
