Hi ed a question about our lukaku replacement.
Are we interested in dembele from Celtic or batshayui from Chelsea or even Tammy Abraham from them too and last but not least Dolberg from Ajax as we could offer all of these playing time ad our main striker

And if Ross doesn't sign are we interested in tielemens anderlevt klassen of Ajax?

Thanks Eds.

{Ed002's Note - Right now William Jose is the player that Everton are looking very seriously at as a striker.

Manchester United and Bayern Munich have both been aware of Moussa Dembele since his time at PSG and were both interested in signing him when he opted for Fulham as a 16 year old. Newcastle, Lille, Juventus, Napoli, Liverpool, Wolfsburg, Marseille, Everton and Spurs had also been looking at Dembele since the start of last season before he opted to move to Celtic for the playing time. Recent glances from Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Monaco have led Celtic to put an unrealistic price on the player that could block any move in the short term.

Everton has shown no interest in Abraham, who is really not ready for such a big step up. Again Everton has not spoken with Chelsea about Batshuayi.

Borussia Dortmund, Chelsea and Manchester City have a declared interest in Ajax's Kasper Dolberg who has also been watched by Manchester United, Rangers, Spurs, Everton, Sunderland and others.

Youri Tielemans has attracted long-term interest from Chelsea with Atletico Madrid, Arsenal, Juventus, Borussia Monchengladbach, Napoli, Spurs, Barcelona and Marseille all showing an interest in the past couple of years. Plenty of other sides will have had him scouted. Chelsea were actively speaking with his club since January 2014 through to 2016 but would have needed to send him on loan for, I imagine, at least a year. Speaking with Mourinho and another chap (with the permission of his club) he was adamant he did not want to be sent on loan - but that was a couple of years ago. Atletico spoke with Anderlecht this past summer and the player liked the idea of a move to Madrid but nothing could be resolved for a move at the time but Atletico could return in the summer if they win their appeal. The problem with a move to England is that he is still may not ready to step right in to the first team at many of the more senior clubs - but it may not stop Spurs looking to bid. It was suggested that he should look to one the "smaller" teams in one of the big leagues, with Everton given as an example but it was no more than that, an example. Interest of Marseille and Juventus has certainly moved on. Inter has discussed the player with Anderlecht recently and has put a financial proposal on the table to his agent. Milan and Roma are also showing some interest and have made that interest known. It is not out of the question that Monaco or Borussia Monchengladbach may look to him again with Monaco having approached Anderlecht after becoming concerned that the discussions regarding Ghezzal were going nowhere.

Ajax midfielder Davy Klaassen is of interest to Napoli who have made a number of offers since last summer.}

Very detailed info ed 002, cheers.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

14 Apr 2017 12:32:32
Thanks for the reply so quick.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

14 Apr 2017 19:56:58
Not bad.

14 Apr 2017 09:38:44
Interesting read this morning, it's in the Italian rags that juventus have dropped out of the race for sead kolinisac as has agreed to join a prem team in the summer.
Also in the Milan bible (got a soft spot for A. C. ) that they have lost out as the player has agreed a contract with EFC
Be a good player to have if this is true.

{Ed002's Note - Arsenal has made an offer to him that nearly doubles the offer from Milan.}

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Apr 2017 10:05:59
So it's arsenal. thanks eds.

14 Apr 2017 12:44:44
Not sure I'd want to join Arsenal currently, don't seem to have a plan!

14 Apr 2017 08:08:14
Hi Ed, apologies if you have already answered this one. If Rom goes this summer, which I believe he will but I will be extremely gutted, do you know of any realistic replacements we could be in for? Just thinking that any replacement must show the clubs ambition to the rest of the squad and fans. For example, in my opinion you don't replace a 23 year old RL with a 34 year old JD.

{Ed002's Note - Everton have been looking at a number of forwards and strikers and do seem keen on Willian Jose (enough to have spoken with his club Real Sociedad about him) and the more versatile Cedric Bakambu. Interest in Lukasz Teodorczyk will have gone when he signed a new contract. Right now the one to watch would be William Jose - and they could look to Bakambu as well.}

Agree1 Disagree0

14 Apr 2017 09:38:44
Excellent thanks Ed.

14 Apr 2017 12:42:26
Will rk have input as to rom's replacement or is sw dealing with it all?

Are we looking young striker or older, Carlos Bacca, anyone?

12 Apr 2017 21:35:15
Just a quick question for Ed002. I know you have discussed this at length so I'll keep it as brief as I can. Do you see any situation in which Lukaku stays at Everton this summer? e. g. no-one who he wants to go to wants him or we offer him a £200k per week contract. Just interested to see how far this situation has gone. Apologies if you have already answered this, I didn't see anything below except for Lukaku wanting CL football and Everton not offering the best terms to him.

{Ed002's Note - I think it unlikely but possible. The issue with the contract was not the wages but the value of a termination clause. His agent is figuring out what interest there is and trying to persuade Chelsea he is a viable option and there won't be any further issues. Manchester United are a little stuck until they can sort out the situation with ZI. PSG never really replaced ZI and are interested - but they might just change managers this summer if things don't turn around. Bayern could suddenly appear as an interested party if MM leaves. Atletico could be a player if they win their appeal. Milan has an issue to resolve but could alos stick their head above water. Wolfsburg and Arsenal cannot be discounted as options.}

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Apr 2017 06:01:20
Ed2 who do you mean when you say MM from Bayern? Is it Muller? Or is it Mandzukic and you meant Juve. Just a bit confused.

{Ed002's Note - Sorry, Lewandowski.}

13 Apr 2017 10:01:44
Surely some of the above contradicts his 'alleged' need for CL.
Man Utd certainly not a shoe in to be playing in CL next year and at the moment there is as much chance of Everton being CL as there is Arsenal, ie very little.

I personally think he will go but will be on Evertons terms, at a price agreeable to us - not to him, his agent or Didier Drogba.
And if he does he is going to miss out on a very bright future at Goodison / Bramley Moore.

Good player, very good goalscorer - but in my opinion poor atitude.

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what you are talking about Dave - again this obsession with money and all of this nonsense "not to him, his agent or Didier Drogba".}

13 Apr 2017 12:30:17
Wolfsburg are just above the relegation zone.

What on earth would he go there for?

{Ed002's Note - They are simply having a bad season - they have the money, a desire for the player and a plan for the club going forward.}

13 Apr 2017 14:15:31
O my god Ed002. As far as I know Everton have no plan to go southwards in the premiership. Wolfsburg are in no better position than us. Load of codswallop where he's going to go. I'd imagine there is very few places he will go to but nonetheless he will leave.

Sadly Everton are viewed inferior to the likes of Wolfsburg no matter how bad a season they have. I see a lot of people say he won't go to Utd because we are in as good a position to get into champions league. This can be viewed as true but sadly people outside Everton view us as inferior and that Utd would be a step up for him.

Possibly it is but I'm very happy with developments at Everton. People seem to still view us as inferior club and won't give us a chance of improving. I believe we will improve. Again sadly imho that will come too late for Lukaku to stay.

Doesn't bother me. Sick of Lukaku talking about his ambition. We have plenty of other players who are willing to devote themselves to Everton and not continually be talking about their own ambitions. Rather achieve their ambitions with and through Everton.

The likes of Coleman who comes across as someone who is totally devoted. Nothing against Lukaku. At this stage imho its better for everyone if he goes. Then everyone can move on. Far too much unnecessary hype in relation to it.

{Ed002's Note - Nobody said he was going to Wolfsburg.}

13 Apr 2017 14:31:01
Appreciate those points Ed.

But to elaborate on "What on earth would he go there for? ".

Why would he go there as we have money, a desire to keep him and a plan for the club going forward as well e. g. stadium, personnel, sponsorship deals improving, not to mention Europe (nearly) next season. Surely the Bundesliga is seen as a step down as well?

Just doesn't make any sense to me that he would consider going to them.

{Ed002's Note - Nobody has said he is going there. The point is that they have the money to buy him. Everton had their chance at a contract and Everton blew it - not the player, Everton.}

13 Apr 2017 14:46:24
To be fair Ed 02 Everton also have the money, the desire and a plan for the club to go forward. I think it's highly unlikely a move to Wolfsburg will be taken, but that being said the list of suitors is still long enough to see him leaving in the summer. And as you say, if past issues can be resolved then for me it will be Chelsea should a deal materialise.

{Ed002's Note - Everton do not have the money Wolfburg has, and are not regulars in Europe. Everton have had their chance with the contract and really screwed it up. I think he wants to move on this summer and Everton will get a good fee.}

13 Apr 2017 17:57:46
He is still on a contract with 2 years remaining - so very much up to the club as to whether he leaves. If the club wanted to put a release clause in then that is their prerogative - particularly after the numerous times Lukaku or anyone else has spoken of his desire to move on.

He sees us as beneath him, just a stepping stone. Well that's fine but he will get off the stepping stone when we want him to - ie at the right price this summer or if not no doubt next summer.

But if not about money and all about his ambition to play CL - then Arsenal, Wolfsburg and even maybe Man Utd are hardly a step upwards at this time.

13 Apr 2017 20:19:56
I don't really understand the "he'll go on our terms" argument. It seems a little spiteful.

I agree that him having 2 years left to run on his contract will probably put us in a better bargaining position, when it comes to selling him though the question should still be why would the club keep a player who doesn't want to be here. It seems completely counter productive from a squad harmony perspective and if he sulks then the club get no real benefit out of keeping him and his value depreciates.

Surely we are better off selling him when he wants to go, albeit for a good fee. The guy wants to play CL football. We cannot offer that at the moment and it seems like he is tired of waiting around. Fair enough.

13 Apr 2017 19:43:55
With respect ed. Wolfsburg are backed by Volkswagen? They had to fork out a huge fine over diesel emmisions I think so may not have the money you suggest.
I believe you are more knowledgable than us mere mortals but even you can't know the financial details of every club.
At the end of the day, que se ra, se ra. What will be, will be and we will all move on to moan and praise someone and something else, but it will all revolve around Everton fc and our players, whoever they be.
We coped without Dixie, young, Kendall, lineker, Rooney and we will survive without lukaku too.

{Ed002's Note - Wolfsburg as a club has a far higher value than Everton, and I have no idea why you are embarrassing yourself over this over and over. You can bleat about me all that you want - if you don't want any more input from me on this site until after the summer just say so.}

13 Apr 2017 21:38:32
I've never said that ed. And I'm not 'bleating' about you as you say. Just stating that Wolfsburg 'owners' lost a lot of money so maybe they wouldn't fancy backing their side with huge sums of money and maybe that's why they are struggling in the league?

Apart from our early exchanges, I've repeatedly said I value your insight and input. But, I can guarantee that a lot of our fans will be pushing your buttons quite tough over the summer, possibly myself included. Just hope you ready for it.

{Ed002's Note - Nobody is talking about backing clubs with owners money - the regulations limit that. I really don't think you understand finances at all. The Everton fans are naive regarding money - the expectation of £200M per window or whatever. Everton can spend what they earn and a little more injected by the owners - and that is it. It also seems that they have been invaded by some real trash who look like they wish to spoil the site for others. I will let it run for a while and then all threads being abused will be deleted.}

13 Apr 2017 21:42:40
Ed002, your .............

{Ed002's Note - Another piece of retromingent trash removed.}

14 Apr 2017 12:41:12
I understand some of the finances, but obviously Wolfsburg couldn't buy players if they were owned by Joe bloggs with a fiver in his pocket. I know there is ffp but would it be possible for clubs to get loans either from owners or using owners name (credit rating) as collateral, similar to us and the new stadium and the council and use this to buy players?

Everton always had loans we had to service until Mr moshiri took over. What were they taken out for?

P.s. don't think many of us expect £200 million per window but we hope for more than the £250 we used to see getting spent.

14 Apr 2017 20:10:15
If the bloke does not want to play for Everton or rather the current situation, Club prospects and contract are not right then he will simply move on and so will the Club. When I worked (my kids/ grown ups have a different viewpoint of my definition) , I was sufficiently endowed with the skills and knowledge in my particular discipline that I was able to pick and choose (up to a point and financial ceiling) . Players have a very short career and of course with the wages and incentives on offer those with the characteristics most in demand can also to some extent pick and choose. Who are we to blame them or demand loyalty.

{Ed025's Note - good point BCT..

12 Apr 2017 21:22:30
Sky stating Torino have asked for another year long loan of Hart but City want to sell as he will be entering last two years of contract with Everton as favourites to sign him and Leicester also monitoring the situation.
Still on the fence on this one myself.

Agree1 Disagree0

13 Apr 2017 00:13:17
seems Leicester are monitoring the situation in case Schmeichel goes Personally, I would prefer to go for Schmeichel rather than Hart.

13 Apr 2017 09:32:05
Rather have Smiecle and Hart can go to Leicester.

{Ed033's Note - Smiecle; is that Gollum from The Hobbit?

11 Apr 2017 21:27:44
Mark Clattenberg is returning to the premier league after his stint abroad, he will take charge of the Everton v Burnley game this weekend.

Agree0 Disagree5

11 Apr 2017 21:23:49
Do we expect to see steklenburg in goal this weekend?

Agree4 Disagree1

12 Apr 2017 01:37:13
No, I think we will have to wait till next season, hope we buy a decent keeper.

11 Apr 2017 19:19:27
Now that Besic is back from his injury, does anyone expect him to be given a chance? I love the guy, but I don't see where he fits in? Anything behind the scenes about him, Eds?

{Ed025's Note - i like mo as well hugo but with morgan in the team im afraid he will be resigned to a squad player mate..

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Apr 2017 01:39:28
Good squad player to have too. Works hard but injuries are his problem.

12 Apr 2017 07:42:56
I think they will keep him in the under 23s until the end of the season then see if he can stay fit during pre season. I hope he will get a chance after that as he is so versatile and can play as cover across the back too.

14 Apr 2017 20:12:24
Said this about Besic before. I also like him but the way he plays I am afraid he has a very short career span ahead of him.

11 Apr 2017 18:26:53
Hi Eds,

Are we interested in Willian (Real Sociedad) regardless of whether Rom departs, or is it only to replace him.

Also a random one, but do you know what is happening with Kovacic from Real?


{Ed025's Note - willian will not come if it is in direct competition for a place in the everton lineup with rom JMW, he has a lot of options and will want guaranteed playing time, kovacic is very well thought of at madrid and is seen as the successor to modric so i cant see him going anywhere mate..

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Apr 2017 22:09:18
Cheers Ed. Concise as always mate.

You say that Willian will not come if there is competition with Rom.
Are you aware what level of players (possibly names) would be prepared to do that?

Also is there any information/ developments on Kasper Dolbergs future?

{Ed025's Note - i thought tilemans was a shoe in JMW but it seems that monaco are in the box seat now so i wont guess mate, dolberg would be a good fit but it seems he is intent to stay at ajax for at least 1 more season..

11 Apr 2017 23:07:42
He would be a quality addition. Its a no-brainer between Monaco and Merseyside haha.

Yeah i think he's top drawer you know. His first touch and link up play is already better than Roms. He looks mor intelligent, its just whether he has that rare knack of scoring as many goals as Rom.

Cheers for the info again Ed.

{Ed025's Note - no probs mate..

11 Apr 2017 01:27:06
If we are serious about keeping Lukaku and Rom wanting to stay how about Zaha to play in the 3 pronged attack with Bolasie on the other side. The pace this forward linebacker would have would give us some serious attacking threat, and that is what we need to be looking at moving forward, also I know he's a red player but since going to Palace Sakho has been solid and is a no nonsense type of defender, could we do worse than bringing him in as well as Keane? All speculation of course, but if I'm looking at proven Prem players at lower clubs that can improve us then the 3 I've mentioned certainly would do that.

Agree1 Disagree2

11 Apr 2017 17:16:31
I'm not sure about Zaha is he better than mirrallas? probably not and as for Sakho no thanks had massive problems at that lot and klopp wants him gone so can't see him acting any differently at us we should try and buy maguire and Keane and look at Leno the GK in Germany who has been superb.

12 Apr 2017 12:15:15
I think Leno would be an amazing signing. Would love us to take a look at Forsberg but I think the ship has sailed there. Another for me would be Ante Coric see if we can tempt him 😉.
