    Transfer Rumour Gabriel (Lille)

    We saw how quickly Liverpool wrapped up the deal for that LB. I imagine it would be the same if Arsenal or Utd had already agreed a deal for Gabriel. Seems similar to the Mina situation as people are saying. Cue Gabriel flying into London tomorrow to sign for Arsenal.

    2019/20 Carlo Ancelotti

    Nothing surprises me in football any more but I think we got Carlo at the right point in his career. He’s been at the biggest clubs in the world and they’re unlikely to go back for him at this point. I think provided that the board backs him then he’s unlikely to leave in the short term.

    It would be the most Everton thing ever if he resigned but, for the moment, that story remains utter tosh.

    Utterly fake.

    It definitely worked out badly but most of the recruitment last summer looked decent. The only two question marks were not signing a CB and moving for Iwobi, which I think most people were somewhat surprised by.

    Everton Transfer Thread - Summer 2020

    I think the journalists at the time said we just kept offering more money until Carlo said yes. I suppose when that happens it must convince him the club is serious about its ambitions. We definitely should have broken the bank for a top manager when we got Koeman in. Although like most things...

    I’m not too worried if he misses out on the first names on the list. As long as there are sensible alternative options being considered then it’s not the end of the world. We need players in who are going to improve the squad and we need them pretty quickly. We can’t start next season with that...

    2019/20 Moise Kean

    Pretty sure it’s not him.

    Everton Transfer Thread - Summer 2020

    Wolves have reportedly been interested in him. His earlier stats don’t look too impressive but he’s got 30 odd goals in 78 games for Köln.

    I’d say the club will be fairly watertight in terms of not letting things slip out but I suppose the real problem is agents leaking things to drum up interest from other clubs.

    2019/20 Cenk Tosun

    I think I recall Sam saying Tosun was the best striker in Europe in the £20million price range. Which in itself is quite the statement lol

    2019/20 Cenk Tosun

    He just isn’t suited to the PL. Best to get him off the wage bill. Probably a loan back to Turkey or something.

    Best Foreign (non British/Irish) Signing ?

    Kanchelskis was genuinely world class.

    Transfer Rumour Gabriel (Lille)

    I think we can make do and mend with existing resources. Agree Keane is limited and ideally the youngsters go out on loan but it’s certainly not the worst stable of CBs going. I don’t know anything about Gabriel if I’m honest; I’d spend on other areas first.

    Everton Transfer Thread - Summer 2020

    Yeah he’s definitely involved in some capacity. He was fairly open in the FT interview that he is happy to “help” Everton.
