What The Papers Say - June 19

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

Tuesday’s Daily Star speculates that Everton are interested in signing Sporting Lisbon winger Gelson Martins.

The 25-year-old is currently on World Cup duty with Portugal and is also rumoured to have caught the attention of Arsenal and Liverpool.

The Liverpool Echo, meanwhile, suggests PSV Eindhoven forward Hirving Lozano is a transfer target for the Blues.

The 22-year-old impressed for Mexico in their 1-0 win over world champions Germany on Sunday.

The local read also carries quotes from former Everton striker Graham Stuart, who reflects on Jordan Pickford’s performance for England in their dramatic 2-1 victory over Tunisia on Monday night.

The Everton stopper became the youngest goalkeeper to play for the Three Lions at a World Cup finals and Stuart said: “I don’t think anything fazes Jordan, even a World Cup game. It wasn’t the busiest night of his life but he was composed when he was needed. You’ve got to make sure your concentration is right up there. Jordan’s was and it was another mature performance. He’s got confidence – he’s got that aura about him.”
