What The Papers Say - 23 May
Skipper on the boss, plus Blues linked with two strikers.
The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.
Friday's Liverpool Echo tells how skipper Phil Jagielka believes Everton chairman Bill Kenwright pulled off a masterstroke in bringing Roberto Martinez to Goodison Park.
The Blues defender explains how he loved playing for the Spaniard during his maiden campaign at the Club, and says Mr Kenwright deserves credit for a shrewd appointment.

Steven Naismith is quoted in the same newspaper discussing his improved form for the Toffees last term.
The Scot weighted in with nine goals in total - more than double the amount he managed in the previous campaign following his move from Rangers. You can watch an interview with Naismith on his season here.
Aiden McGeady also appears in the Echo, saying his old club Celtic face a tough task replacing Neil Lennon after the former midfielder left his role as manager on Thursday.
Meanwhile, in the Daily Star, Everton are linked with a move for Hertha Berlin's £6m-rated striker Pierre-Michel Lasogga. The Blues, Newcastle and West Ham are all said to be tracking the Germany Under-21 international, though it is thought suitors would need to pay more than £55,000 a week in wages to recruit the Bundesliga star.
In the Daily Mail, it is claimed Swansea City have agreed a £7million deal with Standard Liege for striker Michy Batshuayi. The Belgium World Cup standby, however, is said to be hoping Arsenal or Everton firm up interest in his services.
