Friday’s Liverpool Echo reports on speculation in South America that Everton have agreed a £15million fee with River Plate for 20-year-old midfielder Santiago Sosa.

The Argentine has recently represented his country at the U20 World Cup in Poland.

French sports publication L’Equipe claims Everton are among a number of Premier League clubs who may be interested in signing Toulouse midfielder Ibrahim Sangaré.

The 21-year-old Ivory Coast international is also said to have attracted the attention of Lyon.

The Daily Mail suggests Tottenham Hotspur could be lining up a transfer offer for Toffees left-back Lucas Digne.

The paper also links England international Danny Rose with a move in the opposite direction.

Back to the Echo, and the local read carries quotes from Blues centre-back Michael Keane, who has revealed his confidence Everton can build on their impressive end-of-season form when the 2019-20 campaign kicks off in August.

“It’s the best club team I’ve played for,” he said. “You see the talent we’ve got in training every day.

“We want to make our fans proud of us and proud of the team they’re watching, and I think in the last few months of the season we did that.

“We’ve set our levels of performance and we need to carry this form into next season.”
