Your daily dose of Everton news and rumours

The Toffees lost both Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Alex Iwobi yesterday, though the news might be somewhat positive on the former, but pretty bad on the latter.

“Dom didn’t go off with concussion; he had a knock on the cheekbone and a bit of blurred vision so we’re checking it properly.

“Alex we’re waiting on, but it looks like a hamstring injury. Dom, we’re hoping it’s just a knock. With Alex, it’s unusual for hamstrings to settle down very quickly so he’s likely to be out — but I don’t know yet.”

Social media and Villa Park’s away end sounded similar yesterday after DCL went off injured.

Meanwhile, Everton’s search for a striker continues in earnest with Che Adams conversations reportedly progressing. The Blues have apparently made a second offer of £15 million for the 27-year-old, though on the basis of yesterday’s hiding they probably need to replace half the squad.

Could the Toffees somehow better their financial situation through a sale of Demarai Gray? Fulham and Crystal Palace have been mentioned, but it does look like Saudi club Al Shabab could be willing to throw some bigger money Everton’s way.

What to Watch

Arsenal travel to Crystal Palace. Some La Liga and Serie A action on, too.
