Three more names into the frame being suggested that we might be in for via Smarterscout are
Samuel Chukwueze, 20 striker for Villarreal
Maxwell Cornet,23 from Lyon
Isaac Itanga,19 from FC Norfsjaelland
Please excuse spellings don’t know if there is any genuine interest from Everton just an article I read while scanning for any info to get excited about and it passes the time.

I would not get too excited, as covered on previous posts, we are very close to our ffp cap, chances are we will bring Vicenco from Inter in, but have a feeling with no out goings likely, may have to either loan any others, until we can offload a few in the summer and then sign the others in the summer.

Could be wrong and maybe any of the Ed’s can clarify this.

Think we will save a few quid in the summer as I think niasse 80k Martina 60k and baines 60k (guess) are all leaving when their contracts run out so that should give us a little breathing space.

A lot depends on who goes out and a lot can happen in the last few days of the window. If Niasse goes too, we’d need another forward.

I cannot see anyone taking Niasse when they can get him for free in the summer, nor will he bust a gut to a move when he can pick up a big wad just warming the bench and coming on late on In a match to dof his cap.

JB - why would we need another forward if Niasse goes? It’s not as if he’s any good, doubt we’d miss him, could probably play the toffee lady up front and would be better.

If Baines leaves, surely we would have to replace him?

Because we’ve already loaned out Tosun and both players made the bench in recent matches. If DCL picked up an injury, we’d have a problem.

Yes Pierre we would have to replace baines but the chances are he would be on a lot less than baines is which would free up some wages.

I wouldn't be surprised if we Bainesy was offered an additional year at reduced terms. It sort of makes sense in the position we are at with FFP. Unless there is a reasonable up and coming player in the U23 youth setup he would still be a reasonable back up for Digne even at his age.

happily see baines here for another year, it delays the need to buy another left back in the summer (another position fulfilled so we don't have to spend more in the summer) we can then go full throttle on a cb and rw.

Personally I'd be surprised if we didn't offer Baines another year, seems like a no brainer to me.

Not had much game time this season Baines, but I would say this season only, the games he has played in he has played well, Digne has looked out of sorts, I would look to give Digne a rest and give Baines a few run outs And certainly give Baines another season, until we get our ffp more favourable.

Offloading even in the summer some of our overpaid and underperforming squad is something we have had difficulty in doing over the past two years.

If DCL got injured I would rather see Holgate in attack than Niasse. But not Pickford, he doesn't seem to know where the goal is.

Can't we sell an option on the contract renewal for our toiletries to Usmanov for £50m?

To be honest. I can see Baines leaving and going somewhere he will start every or most games as it will likely be his last, maybe somewhere he will be player coach.
Personally think we missed a trick with Robinson by selling him without a buy-back clause.

Still digesting that we are paying Niasse And Cuco almost half a million of month between them. Out of interest I wonder how much our wage bill this year is for players who have played less than 90mins in PL or are on loan and we are still paying (ie Sandro)

Baines definitely another 12 months and a pathway into the coaching setup for me. Proper servant who could have (and maybe should have) taken a big money move back in his heyday. Total respect.
