Evening fellow Evertonians.

I want to state i am not ITK so i tentatively share this information to ponder. It's just some chatter I've heard and could be way off the mark.

Barkley wants a move to a bigger club BUT would happily take a move to almost any club in London, it seems he just wants to relocate to the capital more than anything.

The bigger news i have is that further transfers may actually be put on hold for the time being. It seems that anticipated outgoings are not coming to fruition and if we continue to line up deals we will end up with a bloated squad that has cost a lot of money.

Yes its early days and the window has yet to open, but it was thought a bid would come for Barkley which now looks unlikely, and there is growing thought that Lukaku may actually end up staying. It stems from so many high quality forwards rumoured to be moving that teams could very well swerve a big money move for Rom in favour of equally quality players.

The sudden interest in Lewandowski, although quickly put to bed, apparently made us think that Chelsea are not as keen as first thought and may very well be working on other options instead. It could run late in the window to be decided and we can't splash out on a pricey forward if Rom ends up staying.

The board are not stupid enough to overspend, they will continue with their targets, this is big business all aspects will have been carefully considered that we are obviously not party to, I remember Koeman saying there would be a statement on Ross B for example which never materialised .
This is pure conjecture on your part and not the reality.

22 Jun 2017 23:37:18
We have spent roughly 55 million so far.

Bear in mind that we actually made money in the previous summer window.

With the TV money alone, we still have money left to spend, so why would we put signings on hold?

In regards to the bloated squad. Koeman came out even before the season finished and said that we will be recruiting heavily to cope with the extra games/ demands of european football.

With Conor Mc, Kone released and then McCarthy, Jags, Valencia, Del Boy, McGeady, Niasse all leaving (makes 8) , we have only gotten 2 replacements in so far.

Makes no sense at all. We have money to spend, regardless of whether Rom or Barkley stay. Which i highly doubt they will, and the Eds have already made us aware of this.

22 Jun 2017 23:43:57
I'm not so sure Barkley would be interested in a move to west ham, Fulham, palace or QPR so don't see much in that rumour. I am not ITK but what I do know is that if Lukaku was to stay RK, FM, BK, and SW would be made up.
The club would be stupid to start spending money they couldn't afford based on a possible bid coming in for a player and that is not how the club is being run.
We have money, not billions but enough to bank roll what we have bought so far. Our squad is still small and full of youngsters for a team who needs to compete in the Europa league as well as the prem and domestic cups.
I would take those rumours with a pinch of salt WorcesterEFC.

22 Jun 2017 23:57:34
Window hasn't actually opened yet. So bidding 18m for Brozovic was just a bluff then was it? Stop believing everything you read in the papers mate.

23 Jun 2017 11:18:45
@Woburnblue calm your attitude! This is something i heard people talking about today, nothing whatsoever to do with papers. I didn't say anything was a bluff. My understanding is its a re-evaluation until outgoings are clearer. Obviously higher quality signings are considered but we will not be spending 30 mil plus on strikers in the event we don't sell Lukaku!

I thought people would have the common sense to understand i meant attack rather than whole squad but it appears some people are either too literal or itching to slag things off at the first opportunity.

@JMW1878 I don't think you have a grasp of things, just because we made money in previous window and had an influx of cash from tv rights etc, does not mean we can go out and spend it all. The club is looking to buy big, but these players do not come to sit on the bench, and the club does not invest in numerous high value signings to fill the squad without playing.

The likes of Dembele and Bacca etc will not be actively pursued if there is the possibility of not getting a Lukaku sale. You list 8 players "all leaving" but my understanding is there is little interest and at least 4 of those you named could very well still be at the club come end of transfer window.

@Smit666 another literal view of my comment. Maybe i should have said EPL teams to make it easier for you to understand. Use some common sense that i didn't mean Fulham or QPR! But i am of the understanding that he actually would consider West Ham and Palace.

23 Jun 2017 11:49:09
it's obvious ross has been tapped up by spurs at least a year ago or is it big players within the team reminding every good player we have what a small insignificant club we are but you would think ross (jeffers) barkley would be happy to just come out and say what he wants no fans would hold a grudge if he wanted to try something new in his life especially with his recent troubles. his silence speaks volumes he is not waiting for a move to the capital he is waiting to move to spurs despite the rhetoric coming out of WHL franny i mean ross may just panic and sign for arsenal. what a time to leave tho ross when we are building for the future and the way levy runs spurs you can bet most of the best players in that team will leave within 2 years for better pay and teams maybe you should have taken more stock of players in similar positions in the past.

23 Jun 2017 13:23:35
As I said the window is not open yet, it has nothing to do with who we sell or buy. People have just got carried away with early signings.

23 Jun 2017 13:34:46
If Ross would consider WH or Palace then he seriously lacks ambition and the move wouldn't make sense, they won't pay him more than what we have already offered so the move would be purely based on location which is just NUTS.

23 Jun 2017 15:54:50
I heard some people talking yesterday too and I'm not claiming to be ITK either, but they said those Asda white chocolate magnum copies are just as good as the real McCoy.

22 Jun 2017 23:00:58
Hurry up and announce Sandro please Efc, getting nervous as if just seen a post about Dortmund on News Now "Dortmund interest puts Everton deal in doubt, Toffees fans will be worried Ninety Minutes Online 10:31"

Agree0 Disagree2

23 Jun 2017 06:52:43
Ninety minutes usually talk rubbish mate. Don't believe it until you see it.

22 Jun 2017 21:10:27
Reading that Sandro wants a one year release clause in his contract and that's what is holding things up. I get the feeling RK will so NO if this is true?

Agree1 Disagree3

22 Jun 2017 23:12:14
It isn't true it's Malaga playing silly buggers and trying to be difficult. They're not happy about the low release clause and are doing everything possible to be awkward.

22 Jun 2017 23:58:01
If the release clause states a price then that's the price it's in the contract, personally I'm starting to think Sandro is having second thoughts maybe going to hang around until January to get his move to A. Madrid I hope I'm wrong but Malaga can't play hard ball if the release clause has been met the only thing that can be holding it up is the player and his agent.

23 Jun 2017 04:07:50
Spot on Steff.

22 Jun 2017 07:59:51
Hi Eds,

Echo reporting that we have done the deal for Sandro.

Is this true?


{Ed001's Note - not quite, the registration cannot be transferred until 1st July, other than that though it is done.}

Agree0 Disagree2

22 Jun 2017 08:48:13
Hi Ed,

Thanks mate. I guess i will ask then, is it likely someone will come in an steal him away?

Obviously the likes of Bernado Silva, Pickford or any of the players "signed" so far, can any of these go an opt to sign for another club?


{Ed001's Note - it is possible that any of the deal could be gazumped, but it is highly unlikely to happen.}

22 Jun 2017 10:20:37
Beats me how some poster can disagree with Ed 001 in the post above about Sandro, strange one that, GuernseyBlue.

22 Jun 2017 10:13:23
Phil kirkbride has stated an announcement is imminent, does anyone know how long imminent is? 😂😂.

{Ed025's Note - same as a piece of string ST.. :)

22 Jun 2017 10:14:21
Thanks for clearing up mate.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

22 Jun 2017 10:54:06
If Sandro deal gets completed, and Everton where to also bring in moussa dembele. not knowing much about him. would dembele play as a second striker, i. e. 4-4-2, or would he play on the wing? OR is it likely that the club will cool the reported dembele interest?

{Ed025's Note - i think it will be one or the other who leads the line jcl and it will be game on for who gets that spot, sandro can play as a false 9 though and dembele has played wide so maybe both can be accomodated mate but that could prove embarrassing for me as i would be walking around with a permanent stiffy.. :)

22 Jun 2017 12:01:41
Southern Toffee I have just looked up the word imminent to see if I could clarify the length any better for you.

According to the Oxford English Dictionary

Imminent = When you follow through with a fart and find you are touching cloth an accident is imminent.

Hope that clears it up for you mate.

{Ed025's Note - personal experience grumpy?.. :)

22 Jun 2017 12:17:56
Ed. there comes a point in a man's life were when a stiffy presents itself you should just accept and admire it. nothing to be ashamed of 😉.

{Ed025's Note - at 59 its a blessing jcl..god bless everton.. :)

22 Jun 2017 12:48:01
If that's the case I am surprised you would want to clear it up for me Grumpy! 😂.

22 Jun 2017 14:28:03
At my age Ed every other day.

{Ed025's Note - love it grumpy..

22 Jun 2017 17:04:36
I maybe grasping at straws here Ed025 but judging from your comments it seems to me you think Dembele is coming?

{Ed025's Note - i think we have a decent chance welsh..

22 Jun 2017 07:59:43
Sandro Ramirez to be announced today. 5 Year deal.

Agree3 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 18:34:11
Mmmmm won't hold my breath, hope so.

21 Jun 2017 22:14:07
Apparently we looking at Gustavo Gomez from Milan for around 7 mil. 24 yr old defender.

Agree0 Disagree1

21 Jun 2017 20:37:28
According to transfer insider on twitter Rooney bid imminent utd won't stand in his way . And Chelsea in for Barkley!

Agree1 Disagree5

21 Jun 2017 21:50:22
IF the Rooney deal was possible would us fans want him? My gut feeling is no, but it was only a year ago quite a few of us wanted Wesley Sneijder who is very similar to Rooney as his best years are behind him but had undoubtable quality and great experience. It's a tough call.

21 Jun 2017 22:09:41
Still goals in the tank @.

21 Jun 2017 22:29:52
And looks like a tank. Not for me, I am looking forward to the Everton of the future we are buolding, he had no sentiment for us when he went to United as he felt he was better than us at that time, well times have changed and we are now better in a better position to attract better players.

21 Jun 2017 22:49:25
Apparently according to Ed002 Chelsea aren't interested in Barkley. Can see him going to Arsenal myself.

21 Jun 2017 23:42:58
I think it's going to be United.

22 Jun 2017 06:31:17
Rooney WAS too good for Everton at the time, and look at how the club benefited from his sale? don't be so short sighted.
i for one would take him back in heart beat - if the financial package makes sense. Mourinho abused him, he has plenty left to give, best years behind him or not, he'll have a point to prove.

22 Jun 2017 07:01:54
We have a manager who won a great amount as a player. He has a squad of young players who are winning their age group trophies (u23 league last season, u20 World Cup) our senior squad players have experience of never winning anything except Barry. The only reason I would Wayne back is because he's won it all. We need more winners to infect the mindset of the squad. Zlatan was so priceless for utd last season not really for his goals but he wins and demands the same from his colleagues. Rooney could influence more off the pitch than on it.

22 Jun 2017 08:20:59
Agree Svenny the only sticking point is his wage demands.

22 Jun 2017 09:32:20
I like the fact Rooney was abused at £250,000 a week lol. I'd like to be abused for that amount.

{Ed025's Note - me too mowfee..

22 Jun 2017 09:20:04
He is overpriced, cannnot see any top team bidding for him to be honest not unless we reduce the fee.

22 Jun 2017 10:15:16
Rooney's finished in this league mate. No one really knows where his best position is anymore. I'm not sure he even knows. He hasn't got the legs to be a midfielder, hasn't got the pace or turn of foot to be a striker. So where does that leave him. personally and this from a Chelsea fan that Everton shouldn't be looking at him. Think you've got some better options out there and much younger and cheaper too. And with Koeman as manager, I'd expect you to go far.

{Ed025's Note - im with you adam..

22 Jun 2017 10:16:42
Rooney has a point to prove to himself and everybody else but specially to us Evertonians.

So where else can he go? He doesn't want to play for any other club in the PL apart from Everton. China is a non starter for family reasons.

He's got more money than he knows what to do with!

So Everton or USA?

I am sure he wants Everton but he can't be embarrassed by an offer and therein lies the problem.

He wants a free transfer from United so that Everton can pay him what is in his opinion his worth.

He wants to play football and be motivated.

So his choice will be see out his contract at United or move to Everton.

If he does come to us he will be motivated and determined which clearly he is not presently.

Whether he is worth the gamble is an entirely different subject.

21 Jun 2017 16:12:38
Any actual truth to this Brozovic bid going around eds? Cheers.

{Ed025's Note - links are saying we have had a bid of £16m rejected joe but in not sure about that mate..

Agree0 Disagree1

21 Jun 2017 20:27:23
Ed is there any truth that Milan have to raise €19mill in the next nine days to meet Ffp rules so have to sell someone?

{Ed025's Note - UEFA are investigating irregularities in their finances smit but i dont know of any figures mate..

21 Jun 2017 20:46:19
I read an article stating we had a £16m bid turned down and then said they want £22m for him.

{Ed025's Note - then if we want him we should just pay the money ST..

21 Jun 2017 22:15:35
The figure is 30m.

21 Jun 2017 23:42:10
No they want 20-25 million Euros but are willing to listen to offers due to the time sensitive situation of FFP.

If we bid 20 mill we would get him, which we should do, he is top drawer. To make the next step up to the top 4 you need a top quality bench as well as a top quality 11.

If we can change from having to bring on players like Kone, Valencia, Mirallas Pennington off the bench to the likes of Brozovic, Lookman, Sig/ Barkley/ Klaasen/ Ramirez/ Dembele. 7 decent attackers but only 4 available spots. that's when we have a chance at top 4.

Having a solid 16 players not just a good 11.

22 Jun 2017 06:33:53
I agree Ed in the grand scheme of things it's not much more and would add quality to our midfield options.

{Ed001's Note - Milan are in a lot of trouble, the owner had to borrow the money to buy the club from a hedge fund that are very aggressive in seeking their money back. So he needs to ensure that there is some cash in the coffers to start paying that back. Everton would be mad to just pay the money, there is a deal to be done there.}

21 Jun 2017 16:26:34
Reports stating we've had a bid for Inter's Brozovic knocked back. Sure we'll go back in if we're keen. That would definitely mean that McCarthy was off - we'll end up with too many CMs otherwise. Hope this one comes off, the lad was quality in the Euros.

Agree1 Disagree1

21 Jun 2017 10:29:47
Hi Ed, I'm seeing today that Chelsea have interest in Lewandowski after reports of him being unsettled at Munich. could this have an impact on the Lukaku deal? Surely they wouldn't want to be paying mega money for both of them?

{Ed025's Note - thats right deano and the way i look at it man utd and chelsea will get either lukaku or lewandoski, but i would imagine that aubameyang would also come in to that equation mate..

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2017 12:03:54
Nice one Ed, not too fussed where he goes as long as we get the right price!

21 Jun 2017 13:14:45
As long we as get rid will do me I never want to see him in a Everton jersey ever again the disrespect he has shown our club has been disgraceful and our fans just get rid of him every week he is still here is another week we are paying his wages couldn't care if we sold him for 50 mill just get rid.

21 Jun 2017 12:57:36
There have only ever been 2 options for Lukaku, Man Utd and B Munich. Who his Agent has been talking to I don't know but it seems Chelsea were never in the running. But, who will pay £100 Mn for him?

21 Jun 2017 18:26:45
No one will pay 100 million for him, so he may end up staying if the club are going to stick to their guns on it. If we don't need to sell then there's no panic. It does seem though that we are on the look out for replacements as a precaution of course.

21 Jun 2017 21:59:27
How about a straight swap for Lewandowski, one can only dream.

21 Jun 2017 22:32:35
Stef the blue I echo those comments. Close the door on the way out Rom and grab Ross' coat for him too as he will need it when he is frozen out of the Spurs side.
