Dominic Calvert-Lewin tells Thursday's Liverpool Echo he is relishing the prospect of competition from Everton new boy Moise Kean.

Calvert-Lewin also says he is determined to repay the faith shown in him by manager Marco Silva in handing the striker the Club's coveted no.9 shirt.

BBC Sport’s chief football writer, Phil McNulty, writes of how Everton landed Italy international Kean from Italian giants Juventus.

Everton’s “personal touch” is cited as the main factor in luring the 19-year-old to Goodison Park.

The move is branded “typical of Marcel Brands” and dives into how the Blues' Director of Football goes into great detail to get his man.

Elsewhere, the Daily Mail documents Andre Gomes and Jordan Pickford’s visit to Alder Hey earlier this week. The duo handed out gifts and played FIFA with patients at the hospital.

The Independent analyses Yerry Mina’s recent form, and quotes the defender as stating he is “playing his best football” since he joined The Toffees last summer.
