Everton love a mediocre midfielder every now and then.

Fabian Delph, Tom Cleverley, Darron Gibson, Morgan Schneiderlin.

Delph at the time made sense as he had just been at City and was versatile and a leader. He turned out to be a complete cnut and covid-loony though. The others, including Winks are distinctly average and I'm disappointed we want to spend c. 20m on him.

It's funny that they keep doing this :lol:

For years, whenever Chelsea fans have been unsatisifed with a midfielder, the running joke has been 'oh maybe Everton will take him off our hands for £40m'. Annoyed we didn't manage to offload at least one of Drinkwater, Bakayoko, Barkley on them.

Damn. I've liked Ortega since seeing him be a one man wall against Leverkusen.

Total style contrast to De Gea...a front foot, footballing keeper who touched the ball more than any keeper in Europe last year. Also registered the 4th highest 1v1 save percentage and statistically great shot stopper too.

Another really smart signing from City, while we get Bachmann who's good at pretty much nothing.

If he’s that good why is he agreeing to go warm City’s bench?

Tbh you’ve had very good keepers be backups at big clubs. That’s nothing new. Cudicini at Chelsea comes to mind. Guy was incredible before Czech signed and was good enough to start for most top clubs.
That was 20 years ago! Anyone having a moan because of rumoured 2nd choice GK targets really has lost their head.

I don't see any top 6 club having a use for him, maybe Spurs for depth. West Ham could be a good spot but he'd be too proud to go there. Not the same player and a lot less adventurous than Rice but a cheap stop gap if they sold him next summer.

The fact that he is not wanted at juventus should ring alarm bells for any top 6 -8 side.

At best he would be a squad player for one or two top 6 sides but that won't work with his tantrums and loud mouth mother.

I really hope, for Evertons sake, that they don’t spend big money on Harry Winks. He will make absolutely no difference to that team.

A worrying sign that their approach (spend big money on average players) isn’t changing.

The online articles:
  • Roger Torelló (just a reminder with no new info, though it does affirm that Frenkie De Jong is for sale)
  • Gabriel Sans (the "lack of patience" is covered here)
As of now, Barcelona and Leeds have yet to get in touch with each other. Deco has been representing Barcelona throughout the negotiations. Whilst the other English clubs are starting to make their moves (Arsenal notably with their first formal offer), Raphinha's already agreed to join Barcelona, and the Blaugrana are hoping that Raphinha's desire will give them more time to seal the deal.

Sky Sports are saying it's for £10m. No wonder they dropped interest in Henderson if they knew they could get Pope for that fee. That's a really good deal.
Not great with his feet but maybe Eddie Howe doesn’t care despite being a progressive coach.

Zaha's one of the players whose contract will expire next year. Also, Palace are currently in negotiations with Kouyaté. They want to offer only one-year contracts to players over 30, but Kouyaté wants a two-year one instead.

I think Zaha might hold out for a top 6 club after destroying his chance for a move with his last contract.

Kounde-Barcelona topic in Relevo.
  • As of today Sevilla have NOT received any official offer.
  • Yes, there have been contacts [from other clubs]: [a sale is the] definite objective of the club.
  • Sevilla do not want deferred payments or creative formulas.
  • Bordeaux would receive a 20% capital gain.
  • Competition from Chelsea is an important factor: there is already an agreement with the player.
  • Nothing imminent.

Kean prefers to play for better clubs, so he's waiting for other interested teams to come forward before looking at the Fulham and Forest offers.
