Heard a snippet today from a guy who is a chef at goodison, cheeky bid of 40 mill for Mahrez.

Agree0 Disagree5

15 Jul 2017 20:48:26
Not saying you never heard it or that he isn't a chef in the kitchen but I question why we are holding transfer update meetings in the kitchens of goodison.

In terms of the overall rumour, if he could get back his form I would love it to be true but he seemed so disinterested as soon as it stopped going their way. Personally I'd look elsewhere.

15 Jul 2017 21:35:42
Aren't they only asking for £30m?

15 Jul 2017 21:36:56
I'd be interested if he had been prolific for more than just one season but he's not been too good since so not for me. Siggurdson has done it for the last few seasons so is a better signing for me.

15 Jul 2017 21:38:22
If Mahrez was a top target, he'd be through the door already. Sigurdsson is clearly our top target for an attacking midfielder. I'd be concerned about his attitude. We've only just gotten rid of one sulky teenager!

15 Jul 2017 23:13:28
How was it cheeky? Did they put the phone down without saying goodbye?

16 Jul 2017 08:26:41
Why would mahrez want to come to Everton? Hardly a step up.

{Ed025's Note - you need to stop the trolling now caustic...if you have nothing nice or constructive to say then keep it buttoned, if it was witty or something i would not be bothered but you just seem a bit toxic mate..

16 Jul 2017 09:13:04
Well said Ed, little boys should stick to playing with their little toy soldiers and leave the big boy football talk to the men.

15 Jul 2017 15:24:33
Hi Eds do we have any left back targets at present? And would these include Robertson from Hull?
Or would our current targets be more defenders capable at left back and left cb? Even more so with Funes Mori's injury.

{Ed002's Note - Robertson is a target of Liverpool. Nagatomo and Josh Tumon have been looked at but I am not so sure it is a priority for Everton.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2017 17:38:27
Has the Funes Mori injury not made it a bit of a priority or does that mean youth will be given the chance to add to the depth of the squad?

{Ed002's Note - It won't have changed anything.}

15 Jul 2017 18:36:37
Just wondering, is Nagatomo the Japanese lad from Inter (or formally Inter) ? I remember an excellent japanese defender for them a few years back.

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

15 Jul 2017 19:24:19
Thank you Ed! I'd be a very happy blue if we get him.

15 Jul 2017 19:40:19
Ok thanks for the update Ed.

15 Jul 2017 19:42:52
Who is Josh Tumon? Or is that the dreaded predictive text striking and it should be Tymon the lad who just signed at Stoke?

{Ed025's Note - i expect so ST..

15 Jul 2017 08:47:46
Hi Ed seen a rumour we are back in for William Jose? Any truth in this.

{Ed025's Note - we were a couple of months back jipster but nothing new this end yet mate..

Agree2 Disagree0

15 Jul 2017 12:28:42
So we're still after another striker?

{Ed025's Note - very much so hugo..

15 Jul 2017 20:10:07
Ed with us looking for striker and it's looking like we will miss out on giroud do u know if we are interested in Cedric bakambu from Villarreal as I think he would fit what koeman wants in a striker big strong pacey and a good goal threat I know we r linked with benteke but think palace would slap a 50 mil price tag on him just like swansea have done with sigurdsson.

{Ed002's Note - Everton were interested but he is no longer an option.}

14 Jul 2017 11:44:52
Swansea now saying they are looking into Siggerson being tapped up by Everton, strange saying they have turned a bid of £40 Million down by Leiceste, as far as I can see Everton submitted a couple of bids that Swansea came out in the press saying bid rejected, not sure what part of tapping up they mean, any idea Eds.

{Ed025's Note - not a clue mate..

Agree0 Disagree1

14 Jul 2017 12:07:48
it appears that swans are over exaggerating the situation to me gylfi wants move efc want move and swans are being ridiculous claiming we have tapped him up this is so they can save face like i said earlier this club cares not for the player or any other aspect of what's going on just they're own retarded valuation which has risen twice in this window this is a player who's value is around 25 mill mark when the player wants the move and a team is waiting to buy you do your self no favours with this kind of stuff other swans players are probs watching this situation thinking this could be me next year. one thing is for sure they are making sure gylfi is going to have a bad start for us the price and the weight of expectation on him to perform at efc will be growing by the day and no one can live under those conditions. as i understand it they told him last year they would not stand in his way if they recieve a good offer for him well they have had several good offers for him his head must be in bits as he realises the club have always intended to to play with his career to there own ends there has to be a cut of point to this pursuit he just isn't worth the money. he will never have played under this kind of weight before and it could find him out.

14 Jul 2017 14:07:31
You would make a good sensationalist Journo Bazwil212. All they did was warn Everton they would have to pay the full 50 million and they would not stand to Gylf being tapped up. Just a negotiating stance. Personally as I have said before looking at the prices going around, Sigurson is worth every penny of 50 Mill in comparison.

14 Jul 2017 17:30:47
To be honest I have only seen one official bid and that was us £40m I think Leicester was paper talk.
It's just a matter of time now to deal is done, especially after he was omitted from pre season tour. He is our next signing. Over weekend or early next week.
It's going to perfect all these player in already with plenty of chance to work as a squad.

Definitely best summer as a Everton fan who would of thought we would be where we are now a season and half ago.
The structure of club is great now new money stadium on the way just need to get rid of kit bag deal.

I'm from Bristol
Season ticket holder so only cause I'm up there a lot I can visit store otherwise I'd have to buy online.
My family don't even know how I become a fan but as I keep saying EVERTONIANS ARE BORN NOT MANUFACTURED.

14 Jul 2017 21:15:37
It has also sparked a response from Kaplan and Levien, who have released a joint statement on the matter where they have warned the ruthless Toffees about tapping up the player.

“At this time we have not received an offer from any club which represents a fair valuation of Gylfi given his importance to our club, ” said the Swansea owners, as quoted by WalesOnline.

“As we have stated, we will not be bullied or forced into a decision until a club meets our valuation of the player, no matter whether they believe they have an agreement with the player. Any such agreement would obviously be in contravention of Premier League legislation.

In my book that's as good as accusing Everton of trying to tap Siggy up.

We want £50 Million for Barkley, not for one minute would Everton accuse Spurs of tapping Barkley up if they offered £30 Million, it is called negotiating.

15 Jul 2017 06:24:34
you are deluded mate first off barkley will not be sold for 50 mill cause spurs won't pay it saying we want 50 mill is neg. what spurs will pay is neg. saying we want 100 mill for rom is neg. taking 75 is neg. over inflating the value is not neg it is greed pure and simple they could sell gylfi for 100 million but that money will go to america not to south wales. we are trying to buy a player from sports owners that usually deal with franchises if you read between the lines this is what is going on gylfi has been paying attention to the inns at efc and thought i want some of that he has handed in a transfer request cause he was given assurances when he signed extension that they would listen to serious offers for him. well its not serious offers they want it is the most money they can get despite whatever promises made to the player. the players agent has approached the club to say its a bit much all this and then the club accuse efc of tapping him up and refuse to talk to gylfi's agent and so the player stops traing and statement to the press is made saying gylfi isn't in the right frame of mind at this point these american owners no they have to sell they have broken the bond between the club and player but yet they continue with a very unrealistic valuation that is pulled out of thin air and when we met their first number they changed it and subsquently will not neg. until they're valuation is met this is not a neg. stance it is a ransom demand for a player who is not that good in the world game yeh he suits the prem his energy is always good but at this point there is better players and value out there and gylfi knows it that's why he is not in the right frame of mind, gylfi is paying the price of showing loyalty to a club owned by people who have no idea what's going on in s/ wales and don't understand or care the promises made between a manager and player in fact they probs don't care about swans football is a business after all . keep americans out of football, real football imo . ask the fans across the park see what they think.

15 Jul 2017 08:53:16
Good post floats. The American investors see the PL as a cash cow just like their own baseball and football franchises! Greed is the best word to describe them. We now know GS wants a piece of the blue revolution so we should wait until deadline day and offer even less than 40 mil (just like Spurs will offer 25M for RB) . Those greedy Yanks will rather pocket 35M for GS on deadline day than get nothing and end up with a player who thinks he's been badly treated by Swansea. Failing that we will get him for a more realist price in Jan window.

15 Jul 2017 10:06:00
He is, with out doubt, a good player, but his club are now well and truly taking the piss. Even in todays market, 30-35mill is all the money.
Now with this nonsense about tapping up, the time has come to tell them to do one, report it if you have proof, except there is none.
Keep the player, then, when you have been relegated, we might, if your lucky, come back and give you 20m, and you will be glad to take it.

15 Jul 2017 10:36:41
The only American owner I am happy to continue at his club is Kronkiar. The longer he stays at arsenal the more likely Usmanov jumps ship and joins up with his mate Moshiri.


15 Jul 2017 16:18:48
Toffeeace: A few months I was listening to Talk sport and they were chatting about the Kroenkes. His personal wealth is in excess of $11 Billion and they then said his wife's personal wealth is estimated to be at least double that. Basically the point they were making is that its not about money, its a status toy and why would he ever give that up. they never need to sell. Usmanov is clearly a Arsenal fanatic and if he ever got hold of the club, he would fund them all the way. I think he will be a couple more years yet before he gives up. Hopefully throwing his hat into the EFC ring.

15 Jul 2017 21:06:27
Thanks Blue, good info mate.

14 Jul 2017 03:21:09
Ed who is interested in barkley

{Ed025's Note - spurs are the only domestic club with real interest dazza although united have had a little look, inter looked interested but that seems to have waned in recent weeks and my guess is that we are stuck with him mate..

Agree2 Disagree0

14 Jul 2017 10:13:56
Maybe that wouldn't be a bad thing. If no one comes in for him then hopefully his ego will go back to normal and he'll realise how lucky he is to have what he has at Everton. If he stays and buckles down and works hard I do believe he has a good future at Everton.

14 Jul 2017 11:08:24
The amount of abuse this lad has taken in the past from so-called supporters, particularly at Goodison is appalling. That being said the lad is a very good player, as Koeman says he is no longer a lad with potential but a man and I honestly think if he stays he will flourish particularly alongside Rooney.

14 Jul 2017 13:23:19
If he goes I bet he'll be wearing black and white stripes next season ;-)

14 Jul 2017 13:46:12
I got a feeljng chelsea might go for him as board like him and he's english which we don't have a lot of atm, short on cms aswell.

14 Jul 2017 15:59:50
The issue seems to be no one wants to pay what we want and we cannot let him run his contract down and go on a free.

13 Jul 2017 19:18:10
Hearing whispers Ed, not sure if u have heard anything but. 43.5mil for GS agreed.
Don't know how true but reliable source be announced before FC Twente game.


Everton the gear.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Agree0 Disagree1

13 Jul 2017 20:43:35
Ed002 do you think well have to to the full asking price or do you think a deal can be struck for lower.

{Ed002's Note - I really don't know.}

13 Jul 2017 18:12:36
Wilfred Bony? hahahaha someone sack that journo.

Agree3 Disagree0

13 Jul 2017 20:05:00
Before you laugh and joke. Didn't I hear or read or something about someone saying we signing someone who previously hasn't been linked.

13 Jul 2017 20:27:01
That was Benteke.

14 Jul 2017 05:55:38
we had a chance to take bony last year koeman said no and despite being linked with him so much that ron actually came out and said no we are not after him that it begs belief that we now yet again are being linked i have no doubt this is his agent drumming up interest in the player and an obviously lazy journo who doesn't know his history. no means no.

13 Jul 2017 13:31:04
40mil bid rejected for gylffi its been a mad transfer window how much money do we actually have rolling in it.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jul 2017 14:22:09
Who cares? It ain't my cash. if you want to be a serious challenger you got to splurge the dosh.

13 Jul 2017 18:02:24
kind of odd the way swans are handling this you would think that now gylfi has had his head turned and by all accounts he has efc and swans would get around a table and thrash out a price. swansea at this point are doing themselves a dis-service imo they are trying to get a bidding war going without regard for what the player wants why else would they not negotiate and keep announcing failed bids. this is the reason good players don't go to small clubs. the worst case now for swans is if we pull out gylfi will never be the same again while at that club. that is if he wants to be part of the efc revolution. let's see how long ross is an efc player now city have walker and spurs have money to spend i bet we don't engage in this gylfi crap like swans.

{Ed002's Note - No, they simply want the best price for their player. You make an offer that is acceptable and then clubs can sit down and talk detail of the payments etc..}

13 Jul 2017 18:51:43
I have to disagree with you Swansea are doing what we or any club do they want the best possible price just like we did with felliani stones lukaku the difference here is they rely heavily on Sigs so will want as much as possible if we want him we will have to overpay which doesn't bother me it's not my money.

13 Jul 2017 23:09:31
It is no different to what we did over Lukaku it is buisiness.

14 Jul 2017 06:33:57
yeh perhaps i should have said the player wants to come to efc, he told swans a week ago. what we did with lukaku is sell him to a club that met our valuation however swans have upped they're price twice now and refused to meet they're own original valuation, the price they are asking for is very unrealistic. it was originally 40 mill. stones, lescott deals premium was paid because they were english important for champions league. i have no probs with any team getting the most for their assets just making it public as they did with leicesters bid for the player. if you look back at lescott deal man city chased the player for 2 years and this annoyed moyes he felt man city's boot in his neck, and stones was told so much by the press that he had to move that the hype that surrounded him had nohing to do with efc's valuation rather more to do with the belief that he was a future leader of england team (what a joke that has turned into ) they put a price on gylfi's head we have met it and now the price has gone up nearly 20 mill this lad will have probs living up to the expectation of any move to us. you have to remember any player is human and the price paid by any team is the noose that fans tend to hang players with when it's not going right. swans no he wants the efc move and yet they are trying to sell him to the highest bidder that's my issue, and how fans can relate this situation to lukaku is odd we put a 100 million price on his head rom wanted to go to man u so we dealt with them for 75 so rom's noose at old trafford isn't as bad as it could be manu and rom can feel good about the deal and we feel good trying to close our wallet (it just won't close ) lol . they are doing themselves and gylfi a dis-service because they keep moving the goal posts name a price and stick to it.

14 Jul 2017 11:13:31
I agree with ED002 on this. He was not put up for sale so they are looking for the best price available, we have come in with an offer and it was not acceptable. I have not seen any official indication that Swansea have actually put a price on what he is worth and have consistently said they do not want to sell him. As far as I am aware all the references to how much he will cost and what has been rejected has come from the media not vai an official statement from either of the interested parties. If we want him and it suits both parties we will get him.

13 Jul 2017 10:02:31
Guardian reporting we've bid 40mill for glyfi and that he will NOT be travelling with the Swansea squad to the U. S today, everton hopeful of pushing a deal through.

be great that.

Agree2 Disagree2

13 Jul 2017 10:21:27
now confirmed by Swansea, looks like this one could finally be happening.

13 Jul 2017 10:30:55
Sky saying they have rejected offer.

13 Jul 2017 10:37:33
It does seem that this deal has legs, but it also seems that we'll have to propose a deal comprising a basic fee and add-ons that'll come to around the overall amount wanted by Swansea City. I don't mind them playing hard-ball regarding the fee - after all, that's what we did with the likes of Stones, Lukaku, etc.

13 Jul 2017 10:55:28
Completely agree they can demand the fee they want for the player but 50m seems a crazy fee for him. Feels like we could get better value for that money than what Sigurdson can offer.

Just because we have the money doesn't necessarily mean we should spend it because we can.

13 Jul 2017 11:08:36
Agree that 50 mill seems a bit steep but this is the one transfer that could make all the difference.

{Ed025's Note - its very high for me lee, maybe a player plus cash deal would suit both parties as we have a few we need to offload mate..

13 Jul 2017 11:15:41
I think we are being hit with a w@:ker tax no matter the target. We know Gylfi suits the premier league. Its a lot but we over pay now get a decent league position it gets easier next few years. Did I say its not my cash so I will gladly spend it.

{Ed025's Note - its not like we are very fair when it comes to selling tallaght, the money we got for the likes of fellaini, rooney, lescott, stones and now rom we cant have many complaints mate..

13 Jul 2017 12:35:48
Player plus cash would be ideal Ed but I think they're holding out for the big money. Either way, I think this one needs to happen.

13 Jul 2017 12:53:45
50 for Stones
50 for Sigurdsson
Steep but fair.

13 Jul 2017 13:03:35
Didnt they want Besic when we signed him?

13 Jul 2017 14:00:49
Need to look past the transfer fee, is he going to improve us? Yes . Lad is quality . coyb.

13 Jul 2017 13:40:50
Same sort of deal we did for Lukaku I think, apparently Sig hasn't travelled as he is not in the right frame of mind due to uncertainty over his future, to me this is a deal that will be struck and in essence signal the end of any hopes for Ross. I will be over the moon with this signing the fella adds a new dimension to our attack, another striker/ target man and a natural left sided midfielder and I believe we will have a very good squad to compete next season.

13 Jul 2017 13:49:24
Will be in an Everton shirt now he has withdrawn from the tour, just a little tweak on the fee, Swansea will sell now probs 42 Million with adds on taking price to £50 Million, be shocked if this deal does not go through now.

13 Jul 2017 13:55:07
Proven in prem! Decent scorer at his club usually important goals as well! Dead ball specialist! 3rd highest in league for assists last year! Can win a game with a moment of individual magic!
Imo worth every penny of £50m
We have to remember Raheem Sterling cost that just because he runs fast!

13 Jul 2017 16:38:24
Read something other day about is GS worth the money being touted for him

Basically it broke down his last season and it's not as good as stats make us believe.

Apparently he is not known for his defensive qualities, so scratch that from his game.

About four or more goals were from pens

Think it's around half his assists from dead ball situations.

It basically said that if you take them off his stats record he is below avarage player for his position.

Turning 28 so a 4 year contract, although gets his so called prime years leave us with no real Sell on value.

And I know people say he got no game time, but he went to a better team than Swansea and couldn't break into there first team, must be a reason, he not going to be the best in training then dropped on match day!

I know it's not our money, and personally if we going to throw that at him so be it, but for that amount I don't believe that there is no one else out there SW has had scouted that couldn't cost less, be younger and have the same or even better qualities than GS.

I thought we brought him in for his eye for quality outside the Prem, who can adapt to the prem life style.

If he comes so be it, hopefully he is brilliant for us, but reading between the lines I'm not impressed with our pursuit of him.

What would Leicester want for mahrez?

13 Jul 2017 18:07:39
yeh but he is a runner with a good engine and defenders have to watch all the time and this makes space for other efc attackers with better stats so despite him lacking in certain aspects his energy opens games, and all players have holes in their game, look at rom .

13 Jul 2017 19:35:58
Doesn't need defensive qualities as that is why we play with both Gana and Schneiderlein, take away his dead ball assists? Erm why? Is that like Martinez comments on goals from corners not being real goals? How many times did we waste corners last season because the taker couldn't clear the first man?

This fella brings us a new attacking dimension and sell on value is irrelevant as we ain't buying to sell, we are buying to improve, is Kyle Walker worth £50mill? Yes he is because that's the price Spurs want to sell, its now a sellers market as the money in the Prem now with the T.V deal is astronomical.

13 Jul 2017 20:14:53
That's what I'm asking though BG, will he bring that much, think you read what I said the wrong way.

And we do need defensive qualities cause the best teams defend as a team.

Everyone raves about his stats, and as said stats don't give a full picture, when you break the stats down straight away 4 or more goals are pens, LB takes are pens there fore GS brings 4 less goals, didn't Barkley get 5?

13 Jul 2017 07:52:39
Eds, couple of years back Danny welbeck was linked with Everton. I'm imagining that he is a player who may struggle to get the game time he deserves. I like Danny and think he could do a job for Everton. anywhere along front. Is he someone whom Everton retain interest in, and whom arsenal may consider selling?

{Ed025's Note - i like him as well jcl, but there is nothing linking him with us mate even though i think arsenal would sell if a decent offer came in..

Agree1 Disagree1

13 Jul 2017 08:19:25
Interesting ed, just think he's staled a little there, and a move to Everton could be a shrewd move! Let's hope RK and SW read these pages eh!

{Ed025's Note - they do actually have people checking forums such as this to gauge fans views jcl, how much notice they take is debatable though as we would be employing 24 centre forwards mate.. :)

13 Jul 2017 09:42:29
Made me chuckle ed. I think welbecks ability, age, experience fit the bill perfectly.

13 Jul 2017 12:12:31
I think Wellbecks only issue is his injury history, can we afford to pay a lot of money for a player that could spend a fair bit of time on the treatment table?

13 Jul 2017 12:24:25
In that case, I think we should be looking at signing Messi and Ronaldo.
