What The Papers Say - August 9

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

Everton are said to be closing in on three deadline day acquisitions in Thursday’s local and national newspapers. 


Kicking off with the Liverpool Echo, it is suggested the Blues are chasing Barcelona pair Andre Gomes and Yerry Mina before the transfer window closes.

The Daily Mirror adds that the Toffees are working to complete the free transfer of Brazil international midfielder Bernard, while the Daily Mail believes Everton are chasing a loan deal for Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma. 

After his press conference on Wednesday, Richarlison also features heavily across both local and national editions. 

In the Independent, the Brazilian explains why he rates Marco Silva as one of the best coaches in the world, and tells the Guardian that he believes the Portuguese “will win things at Everton”. 

Elsewhere, the 21-year-old is quoted in the Echo on why he is relishing calling the “cauldron” of Goodison Park home, and in the Daily Mail reveals why he is relaxed about his transfer fee.

The Mirror runs with the winger aiming to break into the Brazil squad after moving to Everton.

Yannick Bolasie and Mo Besic are deadline day targets for Championship side Middlesbrough, according to the Northern Echo. However, the Mirror suggests the DR Congo winger could return to former club Crystal Palace.

Finally, the Yorkshire Evening Post claims Leeds United are after a loan deal for Matthew Pennington, who spent last season at Elland Road.
