Jagielka on England, plus more transfer gossip.
The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.
Several players are linked with transfers to Everton in Sunday's papers.
The Daily Star Sunday claims Juventus are rivalling the Toffees for Croatia winger Ivan Perisic who is said to be valued at around £8million by Wolsburg.
The same paper also claims Everton are still awaiting an answer from Gareth Barry regarding a permanent switch to Goodison Park.
Meanwhile, the Sunday People says the Blues are lining up a move for Dundee United’s Andrew Robertson, with Southampton and Swansea City also showing interest in the 20-year-old left-back.
Everton are also reported to be tracking Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie, according to the Sunday Mirror.
The Sunday Echo reports that Alan Stubbs is set to be announced as the new Hibernian manager on Monday. The article also suggests that the Everton Under-21s coach is likely to take assistant David Unsworth with him to Easter Road as his number two.
The Echo also features an interview with Kevin Sheedy who looks back at his and the Republic of Ireland’s World Cup adventure in 1990, while Lee Carsley predicts Alan Irvine to be a big hit in his new role as West Bromwich Albion’s Head Coach.
The fallout to England’s World Cup elimination, unsurprisingly, remains the main topic in the national newspapers.
Quotes from Phil Jagielka appear in the Sunday Mirror. The Everton captain says England’s youngsters must wise up and learn the dark arts of football if they are to progress at a major international tournament.
