What The Papers Say - 27 August

The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.

It is rumoured the Toffees are ready to hijack Chelsea’s £40million bid for Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy in Sunday’s Daily Express.

Elsewhere, Wayne Rooney once again dominates the back pages, with Gareth Southgate hailing the quality of the 31-year-old after he announced his retirement from international football.

Phil Jagielka says Rooney is serving as an Everton captain, while Ashley Williams says England’s all-time record goalscorer is still hungry for more trophies.

And finally, in the Daily Mail, it is claimed Brighton are lining up a move for Oumar Niasse, who is reportedly valued at £8million.
