A round-up of today's paper talk.
The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.
The Liverpool Echo carries quotes from Gerard Deulofeu saying he enjoyed his time on loan at Everton last season but wanted to play more games.
The local paper also includes Gareth Barry saying James McCarthy will get even better this season and a piece explaining why Roberto Martinez’s time at the World Cup will benefit Everton.
The Mirror also includes a report on McCarthy, with the midfield man saying he’s feeling fresh after reporting back for pre-season.
