A number of European transfer windows closed on Monday, with Yannick Bolasie’s deadline day move to Sporting Lisbon featuring heavily across the local and national papers.

The 30-year-old winger has joined the Portuguese club on a season-long loan.

The Liverpool Echo analyses the depth of Marco Silva’s Everton squad, highlighting in-form winger Bernard having to settle for a substitute's role in the Blues' 3-2 win over Wolves on Sunday.

Both the Daily Express and Daily Mirror, meanwhile, select forward Richarlison in their teams of the week following the Brazilian’s brace at Goodison Park.

The Express also looks at how each Premier League team are performing compared to last year.

Everton have one point more than they did this time last season, following victories against Watford and Wolves and their opening day draw against Crystal Palace.
