Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours

Editor’s Note: Just a quick reminder that our big season preview series will be going live later today, analyzing all the different positional groups and prospects, and of course, our much-anticipated season predictions.

Is a Hugo Ekitike move on or not? Depending on who you’re asking, we have ‘concrete interest’ in him, but are ‘not pursuing a deal’, then they not only have a ‘strong interest’ but have even ‘submitted an offer’, and a loan deal with mandatory buy option clause being discussed. Everton’s silly season is always something to behold.

Check out the latest My Everton memory:

“Everton Football Club is in my blood. I was born in Walton to a family of Reds, literally every one of them were Liverpool supporters. Not me, ever. As a young kid I could see the floodlights of Goodison from my bedroom window in Bootle and I was hooked. I had to go see what was happening inside.” [EFC]

What a joy to behold the new Everton Stadium already is!
