Papers are saying Marvin Plattenhardt is ready to sign for Everton a like for like Baines swap. But he'll sign after the world cup. A very good signing if it happens. I wouldn't get too excited just yet though as teams will see his performance and potentially pip us for his signature. If it was a done deal us capturing his signatures then we'd fly out there and get it sorted. Fingers crossed though.

Was reading about this guy earlier papers suggested we held interest back in January will be watching the Germany match later to see more of him and Lozano as I just don’t think the links on him will disappear.

Think he's Germany's 2nd choice LB so don't think we'll have to worry about his performances mate.

In the team! Fingers crossed we can get him.

Oh yeah he's starting! My mistake. Let's see how him and Lozano get on and hopefully sign the pair of them up.

{Ed002's Note - Whilst Hirving Lozano was certainly of interest to Sam Allardyce, it is difficult to see him joining Everton given that (a) Brands was at PSV and there may well be a "no poaching" agreement in place, and (b) he will have more attractive options available to him.}

I thought Lozano was quite an attractive option who would you say are the more attractive options open to Brands now then? 😉.

{Ed002's Note - The problem is always going to be taking on a coach or Technical Director from another side and then trying to cherry pick their players, so I would not hold out hope of Lozano joining Everton this summer. One player who is not dissimilar to Lozano who is of interest to Everton (and a couple of other sides) is Porto's Yacine Brahimi.}

I thought that might be the case Ed, shame for us.
On the positive side of things I put a 10er on him to score first and he's just slotted one home!

I believe the Ed was referring to there being more attractive options for Lozano, not Brands.

Well that didn't look good. Spent all his time out wide, and looked very short on pace.

Wasn't Brahimi a target under Koeman ed002? Think I remember the links.

{Ed002's Note - Sure.}

I think the most important thing is in brands we have man that brought lazano to psv if he comes us great but if he doesn't then he can find the next young talent out there to pursue.

The Echo reports there is nothing in Brands' contract which prevents him from swooping for PSV players.


Let's go get Chucky!
