What The Papers Say - 24 June
Barkley, Traore and Stubbs discussed in Tuesday's papers.
The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.
Tuesday’s Liverpool Echo suggests that Everton are in negotiations with AS Monaco in an attempt to bring striker Lacina Traore back to Goodison Park for a second loan spell.
Traore’s stint with the Blues during the second-half of the 2013/14 season was injury-plagued and it is claimed that the giant Ivorian is open to the prospect of a swift return to Goodison.
The sports pages in the nationals are dominated with England coverage ahead of their final game at the World Cup against Costa Rica later today.
Ross Barkley has been included in the starting line-up and the Daily Express, Daily Telegraph and the Guardian are amongst the papers which include quotes from Roy Hodgson who has challenged England’s young brigade to prove their worth in Belo Horizonte.
North of the border, the Daily Record continue to report that Alan Stubbs is set to be named manager of Hibernian. Tuesday’s issue of the paper features an interview with former Scotland international Darren Jackson who says the 42-year-old would be a ‘great appointment’ if he is handed the role at Easter Road.
