The transfer talk intensifies in Wednesday’s local and national media.
The Liverpool Echo reports that Everton are ‘closing in’ on Ferencváros midfielder Muhamed Besic, with a £4million price tag suggested.
The Daily Express have linked a handful of players with the Blues in their ‘transfer special’.
Besic, Salomon Kalou, Jack Rodwell, Yacine Brahimi, Christophe Kramer, Demba Ba and Lacina Traore are all claimed to be ‘on the radar’ of the Toffees.
Elsewhere, the Daily Star says Everton will consider making a £14million move for Sevilla’s Colombia striker Carlos Bacca if a deal cannot be agreed with Chelsea for Romelu Lukaku.
Away from the gossip, quotes from Joe Royle appear in the Liverpool Echo as the Club legend says he is relishing the chance to work with manager Roberto Martinez.
