Recently Everton completed a quite unusual transfer deal. Although this entire window is a bit unusual for the Toffees, who are usually a bit understated in the transfer window, this particular deal is an outlier in terms of the price paid by them.

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.

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.
