Everton linked with move for Serie A defender

  Everton linked with move for Serie A defender Everton are reportedly interested in Serie A defender Gian Marco Ferrari, according to Calcio Mercato. Ferrari was signed by Sassuolo before the 2016-17 season, and was immediately loaned to Crotone. A strong season in Serie B was rewarded with another loan spell at Sampdoria, this time in the top-flight. After 30 appearances for Sampdoria last season, a pair of Premier League clubs are now evaluating their chances of landing the 26-year-old on a permanent deal. One of those clubs is Everton, where new manager Marco Silva looks to find Michael Keane a partner at centre-half for the upcoming campaign. Should Sassuolo be willing to say goodbye to the uncapped defender, Calcio Mercato report that a fee of €8-10 million would be enough to bring Ferrari to England. With West Ham the other Premier League outfit said to be keen on signing Ferrari, Everton could face additional competition from Russian club Spartak Moscow.

Roy Keane believes Croatia were worthy winners as England's World Cup dream died in agonising fashion in Moscow.

England's hopes of claiming a place in Sunday's final against France faded as a second half goal from Ivan Perisic and an extra time winner from Mario Mandzukic left Gareth Southgate's players shattered, with Keane suggesting the English agony should be laced with pride.

"It was just a step too far for them," declared Keane. "The next step for England is the biggest step and the hardest step by far, to get to the World Cup final. The opportunity will there for them to win that game, but they were not good enough.

"You look at all these England players and most of them haven't won a trophy. It is highly unlikely the first trophy in your career is going to be the World Cup. That is why is was always going to be difficult for them to go all the way.

"Croatia were better than them. England players and Gareth have shown a lot of class, but let's give credit to the opposition. Croatia were like warriors and the reality is England were not quite good enough to take their opportunity."

Keane was also critical of England skipper Harry Kane, as he suggested the Spurs striker looked off the pace as he laboured through most of the second half and extra time.
