When Everton announced the much-awaited capture of Davy Klaassen from Ajax this past week, Toffees fans were left rejoicing at the prospect of watching a quality player don the famed Blue jersey.

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. Whether true or not, if Conte was benchmarking his side against the Blues from Liverpool, he has reason to feel …

Three Things we Learned from Everton's Victory Over Leicester

Everton were looking to record their first victory since mid-March after failing to earn the bragging rights over local rivals Liverpool and Manchester United in recent weeks.

Gylfi Sigurdsson - A Good Fit for Everton?

Everton have yet to make an outfield signing this summer and they will be hoping to accelerate their transfer business in the coming weeks.

They were believed to be in for Gini Wijnaldum, who has since joined rivals Liverpool. A new link made on Friday was with Gylfi Sigurdsson, which is exciting for Everton fans. The …
Ross Barkley - Should He Go to the Euros?

Ross Barkley - Should He Go to the Euros?

The big shocks in the England squad were Marcus Rashford and Andros Townsend being included after both finished the season strongly. However, the inclusion of Ross Barkley hasn't warranted a mention, as he has been a member of the squad throughout qualification.
