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

Two Everton Giants feature in today's newspapers.

Kevin Ratcliffe tells the Liverpool Echo of his admiration for Cuco Martina. Everton's two-times title winning captain Ratcliffe lauds Martina's strength of character and singles out the left-back as one of his team's best performers since Sam Allardyce took charge of the Blues in November.

Former centre-back Ratcliffe also points to the "training benefits" he believes the Toffees will glean from their ongoing camp in Dubai.

Everton's championship winning centre-forward and FA Cup-winning manager Joe Royle, meanwhile, is quoted in the same paper hailing the qualities of the talented young Blues' trio of Jonjoe Kenny, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Tom Davies.

Everton striker Sandro Ramirez, currently on loan with Sevilla, has reportedly told a Spanish radio station of his wish to remain with the La Liga club next season.

And the Daily Post picks out the five players who could most profit from the Club's warm-weather training stint in the Middle East.
