Everton Sign Davy Klaassen from Ajax – Another Statement of Intent

Over the last two days there was considerable speculation over Antonio Conte’s future at Chelsea. Some reports, most likely falsely, suggested that the Italian manager was unhappy at the Champions because he felt he was not getting the support he needed to make the transfers he needs to solidify his team’s place at the top and target the Champions League.
