What The Papers Say – March 19

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

Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin features in a selection of Tuesday's newspapers.

The 22-year-old tells the Daily Star he is embracing the "great responsibility" which comes with playing up front for Everton.

The Daily Express pursues a similar line with Calvert-Lewin, who informs the paper, "If I want to get to where I want to be and score many goals for Everton, I have to take on that responsibility".

Midfield duo Andre Gomes and Idrissa Gana Gueye will have their fitness monitored during the ongoing international break after both players sustained knocks in Sunday's victory over Chelsea, according to the Liverpool Echo.

The same paper includes Marco Silva giving his take on in-form Calvert-Lewin, the Everton boss insisting the attacker "is growing as a footballer" and "has the conditions to be a very important player for us".

The Echo also reports on speculation in Italy that Everton are poised to move for Roma's former Manchester City striker Eden Dzeko.

Remaining on the continent, ex-Barcelona captain Carles Puyol, three times a Champions League winner with the Catalans and a world champion with Spain in 2010, tells Marca in his homeland that Everton defender Yerry Mina was unfortunate not to receive more playing time during his Nou Camp stay.

Mina swapped Barca for Everton last summer and former centre-back Puyol says he wishes the Colombian "good luck" in his Goodison Park career.
