After securing the permanent services of André Gomes the arrival of the England midfielder for a cut-price £8.5m should only add to the sense of excitement at Goodison
The consensus among the more excitable news outlets is that this is going to be a record-breaking transfer window in England, with some huge deals expected in the next few weeks, even if Paul Pogba, Harry Maguire, Christian Eriksen and the rest are all back in pre-season training with the same clubs they were supposed to be leaving.
There is more to building an effective side than splashing the cash and playing games of brinkmanship, however, and Everton must be among the clubs quite satisfied with the business they have done so far. Basically Marco Silva has bought himself a new midfield for a cost of around £30m, even if André Gomes was already at Goodison on loan last season. Most people felt a fee of £22m for a former Barcelona player of obvious class was a fair price in today’s inflated market, which makes Fabian Delph at £8.5m either a steal or the bargain of the decade.Continue reading...

Everton have completed the signing of Fabian Delph from Manchester City with Marco Silva convinced the 29-year-old can play an influential role on and off the pitch at Goodison Park.
The England international had one year remaining on his City contract but wanted more regular first-team football having made 20 appearances in their treble-winning season. Everton will pay an initial £8.5m for the midfielder, rising to £10m with add-ons. The former Leeds and Aston Villa player has signed a three-year deal at Goodison.Continue reading...

- Thu, 11 Jul 2019 08:26:41 +0000: Football transfer rumours: Diego Costa heading for Everton? - Everton | The Guardian
Today’s gossip came from the foot of our stairs
Arsenal are not giving up on signing Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace. As well as that derisory/prudent £40m initial bid for the winger, they are prepared to offer three players they value as worth another £40m into the deal. Calum Chambers, Mohamed Elneny and Carl Jenkinson may be running out at the Selhurst Colosseum if a deal now worth £80m in book value goes through. Palace, meanwhile, would prefer £70m straight out if they are to lose their Ivorian jewel.
Diego Costa back in the Premier League just as VAR comes in? Marco Silva wants the striker, who is surplus to requirements at Atlético Madrid, to be part of his Everton revolution, though director of football Marcel Brands is resistant to the arrival of a player as old as 30. Juventus’ Moise Kean, 19, and Lille’s Nicolas Pépé, 24, are more comfortably in that Brands bracket.Continue reading...
