Everton tracking Lille forward Leao - but should the Toffees meet the €30m valuation? Everton and Aston Villa are reportedly in the running to sign Lille’s Rafael Leao – but should the Toffees meet the Ligue 1 side’s €30m valuation? According to Spanish outlet Superdeporte, cited by Sports Witness, both Everton and Villa, along with La Liga outfit Valencia, are all keen on the 20-year-old this summer. The report goes on to add that Lille will demand a fee in the region of €30m for the highly-rated youngster this summer. Marco

Everton have reportedly named their price for RB Leipzig target Ademola Lookman, but should the Blues let the winger go this summer?

The 21-year old has long-been a target for the Bundesliga outfit, having spent six months on loan with the German club in the 2017/18 season.

Leipzig pushed hard to sign the England youth international last summer, having several bids rejected by Everton, while they also returned with interest last January.

The former Charlton Athletic man is once again interesting the club this summer, with manager Julian Nagelsmann keen on bringing him back to the Red Bull Arena, and Everton have demanded that Leipzig either pay their asking price or walk away rather than drag the saga out once again.

West Ham demanding £40m for Marko Arnautovic

West Ham demanding £40m for Marko Arnautovic West Ham are refusing to sell Marko Arnautovic for anything less than £40 million this summer. According to the London Evening Standard, the Hammers will not be forced into selling the player on the cheap after he handed in a transfer request earlier this week. After seeing a deal to move to the Chinese Super League fall through during the January window, Arnautovic is now once again being heavily linked with a move away. The first offer the

Everton are closing in on the £10million capture of Charlton forward Ademola Lookman , with the deal expected to be confirmed early next month. Teenage forward has been watched by Arsenal and Crystal Palace for some time. Palace attempted to sign him from the League One side back in the

Everton complete the £11m signing of Charlton Athletic's teenage forward Ademola Lookman on a four-and-a-half-year deal.

While Everton declared last summer that Lookman wasn’t available at any price, the combination of the winger’s limited impact last season and his desire to leave Goodison Park has led the Toffees to slap a valuation of £25million on his head.

Everton have already rejected an opening offer of £15million, but should they hold out for the full package offer?

Short answer, yes. Lookman’s situation is a very divisive one among the Everton fan base, and I fall in the camp that the club should not let a player as talented as Lookman leave under any circumstance.

I rate Lookman’s ability and I believe he can offer the club something different, while he also has potential to continue developing and improving. With less impressive wingers in Theo Walcott, Kevin Mirallas and Yannick Bolasie at the club, Everton shouldn’t be looking to offload their promising stars, period.

Napoli ready to sell Mario Rui to fund Kieran Tierney deal

Napoli ready to sell Mario Rui to fund Kieran Tierney deal Napoli are looking to offload left-back Mario Rui in the coming weeks to fund a move for Celtic star Kieran Tierney, according to the Telegraph, cited by the Daily Star. The report suggests that boss Carlo Ancelotti is ready to allow the Portuguese defender to leave for around £15 million, which would then give the Serie A side the finances needed to make a move for the Scotland international. Tierney has been heavily linked with a move away from Celtic Park this summer, with Premier League giants Arsenal extremely keen on bringing the left-back to the Emirates.

Everton boss Ronald Koeman has revealed the club are interested in signing 19-year-old Charlton forward Ademola The Dutchman was not prepared to estimate when a deal for Lookman , who has scored seven goals so far He added with a smile: "Some names (the club are being linked with) are

However if Marco Silva simply cannot convince Lookman that Everton is the place to be, and if the board are set on recouping a fee for Lookman and moving on, then Everton should demand more money than their valuation.

In a world where Tyrone Mings costs £25million, for a talented young forward who can immediately have an impact while he will undoubtedly improve and likely become a full England international, the quoted figure isn’t enough.

This current market has exploded and prices have sky-rocketed. Everton should not let Lookman leave the club, but if they are set on doing so, that price needs to rise to £30million at an absolute minimum, regardless as to whether that is deemed over-value by outsiders.

Leipzig ready to spend €22m on Lookman - should Everton accept?.
RB Leipzig are reportedly ready to spend €22 million on signing Ademola Lookman from Everton, but should the Toffees accept such an offer? According to claims from German source Kicker, the Bundesliga club are prepared to spend big to lure the promising forward away from Goodison Park this summer. Lookman was used sparingly by Marco Silva throughout last season, raising speculation surrounding whether or not he will be at the club for the 2019/20 campaign. Leipzig were keen to recruit the youngster last summer but were unsuccessful in their efforts. This time around, however, they may have more luck in their pursuit of the former Charlton Athletic front-man.
