What The Papers Say - 27 July

The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.

Sky Sports journalist, Matteo Moretto claims the Club are preparing a move for PSG goalkeeper, Sergio Rico. 

The reporter's source believes Everton have submitted an offer to the French side for the 27-year-old. 

However, Moretto adds that the offer has initially been turned down as Rico is looking to be guaranteed playing time. 

Italian outlet, TuttoMercatoWEB reports that Everton have placed a large asking price on Richarlison in an effort to clear away bids for the Brazilian striker. 

One of the rumoured clubs interested in the Everton player is Real Madrid. 

However, an offer in the region of £77million should be met before the Club would consider allowing their player to leave Goodison Park, their source claims. 

Keeping with Italy, Il Messaggero writes that Everton are one of only two English sides who have pursued the possibility of signing Joaquin Correa. 

The Blues are said to have made a "significant effort" to sign the Lazio player. 

However, the Club reportedly are only willing to pay £17million for the forward, a fee below the Italian side's valuation for the player. 

Tottenham Hotspur are also reportedly interested in signing Correa but will also not pay above £17million.
