Two strikers are linked with moves to Everton in Thursday’s edition of the Daily Mail.

The paper suggests the Blues are keen to prise Mario Mandzukic from Italian champions Juventus, while 20-year-old Lille attacker Rafael Leao is also rumoured to be on Everton’s radar.

Mandzukic, who scored for Croatia in their 4-2 World Cup final defeat by France in 2018, has hit 31 goals in 118 appearances for Juventus since signing for the Turin outfit in 2015.

The 2018/19 season was Leao’s maiden campaign for Lille, having moved to the French club from Sporting Lisbon, and the Portugal Under-21 international netted eight times in 24 Ligue 1 outings.

French publication L’Equipe reports Everton have “shown an interest” in Marseille midfielder Morgan Sanson.

The 24-year-old is also said to have attracted the attention of Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Liverpool Echo reports Everton’s plans for a new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock and a legacy project at Goodison Park will be shown across the Liverpool City Region as part of the Club’s second widescale consultation with the public.

The People’s Project public consultation takes place from Friday July 26 to Sunday August 25 and will visit 12 locations across all six city region boroughs - Liverpool, Wirral, Sefton, Knowsley, St Helens and Halton - over 19 days of the month-long consultation period.
