Transfer rumours aplenty in Sunday's papers.
The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.
As well as match reports from yesterday’s win over Swansea, there are also transfer rumours in Sunday’s papers.
The Mail on Sunday claims Roberto Martinez could be a ‘surprise name’ on the shortlist for the next Barcelona manager is they decide to replace Gerardo Martino.
The Sunday Express says Chelsea want to sell Romelu Lukaku this summer - but the on-loan Everton man will only be permitted to leave Stamford Bridge for a club not in the Premier League.
Sunday’s Daily Star links Martinez with a move for Swansea striker Wilfried Bony - the man who scored at Goodison yesterday is apparently set to become a £15m summer target for Everton.
And in the People, another name linked to Everton is 22-year-old Brazilian Roberto Firmino, a ‘clever attacking midfielder’ currently starring for Hoffenheim in the Bindesliga.
Another tabloid also says young Blues striker Conor McAleny will be loaned out to either Brentford or MK Dons in the near future.
And in the Sunday Echo, Martinez says his players’ ‘special connection’ with the Everton fans has been the key to the eight match home winning streak.
