Both national and local papers report on Christian Atsu’s loan move to Everton today.
The Ghanaian’s protracted temporary switch from Chelsea finally went through on Wednesday evening and the Liverpool Echo carries quotes from Roberto Martinez revealing his excitement at having the chance to work with former Porto wide-man.
Martinez also talks about midfielder Muhamed Besic, saying his combative nature won’t cause any issues in his first season in the Premier League.
The Echo also has a story with Phil Jagielka, with the Blues skipper claiming his fellow players are ready to go ahead of the season opener at Leicester City on Saturday.
A look at the nationals sees Atsu’s arrival widely reported, while the Daily Mail suggest Everton may be interested in a deal for free agent striker Samuel Eto’o.
