“Ellis has an outstanding goal record at under-18 and under-23 level and I believe he’s now ready for this step into senior football. He’s a player I’ve been aware of for a few years now and I’m delighted that he’s chosen to sign for us, given that he had a number of options available. He will add something different at the top end of the pitch and I would like to thank Everton for trusting us with his continued development,” says Blackpool manager Neil Critchley. [Echo]

“At the moment, there is nothing completed, but Everton and Parma are in the race for Zirkzee, and we have to see the decision of the player, because the key will be the player, more than Bayern Munich, more than an agreement with the club, the problem will be finding an agreement with the player because he wants to think to his future, so pay attention to Everton and Parma,” says Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.
