Everton could make January swoop for Vardy

Everton could make January swoop for Vardy Everton could make a move to sign Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy in the January transfer window. According to The Mirror, via The BBC, Everton are potentially looking to profit on Vardy’s tense relationship with Claude Puel. Vardy is reportedly frustrated with the French boss after he dropped him for Leicester’s clash with West Ham in the Premier League. The report claims that Everton will look to make their move on Vardy if the situation remains unchanged. Vardy has scored three goals in five Premier League appearances this season, after netting 20 league goals last season. Since joining Leicester in 2012, Vardy has scored 92 goals in 240 games for the club, 65 of which came in the Premier League. Everton are looking to freshen up their attacking options and want a new striker to lead their line, with Vardy being a potential target.

Everton have been banned from signing academy players who have been registered with another Premier League or EFL club in the preceding 18 months for two years after breaching recruitment rules.

The suspension comes after Everton admitted to the Premier League that academy staff had offered inducements to a player and his family to encourage him to register with the club, with a subsequent inquiry revealing similar breaches had taken place in relation to six other academy players.

A statement from the Premier League read: "The Premier League has sanctioned Everton FC for breaching Academy player recruitment rules.

"The Premier League received evidence alleging that Everton Academy staff offered inducements to a player and his family to encourage the player to register with the club. When presented with this information, Everton immediately admitted the allegations and set up its own internal inquiry which established that similar misconduct had occurred in relation to six other Academy players.

"In certain cases, it was found that the club provided false information to the League when questions had previously been raised about the circumstances in which Academy players registered with the club.

"The club will pay a fine of £500,000 and will be banned for two years from registering any Academy player who has been registered with another Premier League or EFL club in the preceding 18 months. The club will also pay additional compensation payments to the former clubs of two Academy players."

In response Everton said in a statement: "Everton has worked alongside the Premier League over recent weeks to conduct a full and thorough investigation into allegations relating to our Academy's operational methods in some areas of player recruitment.

"In short, we are extremely disappointed with some of the practices we have found which are not in line with our values and not acceptable to Everton Football Club. Accordingly, we have accepted the penalties imposed on us by the Premier League and have given them our strongest apologies.

"We have already commenced a full review of our Academy operations and are committed to ensuring that issues like this do not happen again at Everton."

Marko Arnautovic wanted by Everton and Chelsea.
Premier League duo Chelsea and Everton are both tracking Marko Arnautovic’s situation at West Ham, according to the player’s agent. In an interview with Austrian newspaper Kurier, the West Ham forward admitted that he has his eye on a transfer. “I’m 29, so that’s the best age. It’s clear that I want to compete with the best players. But in this affair, I totally trust my brother.” Danjiel Arnautovic, Marko’s agent and brother, has since told Gianluca Di Marzio that there is a lot of interest in the 29-year-old and that the duo will be interested if West Ham do decide to let him move. He said: “There are a lot of Premier League clubs tracking him. Chelsea and Everton, for example, but not only them.” Arnautovic is happy at West Ham and admits that he has no issue with the club but he wants to be competing for major honours and he doesn’t feel like he can do that with the Hammers. Everton have lacked a consistent goalscorer since losing Romelu Lukaku and Arnautovic could be the man to fill that void.
