Everton morning headlines as summer transfer strategy gets a rethink
Here are the Everton morning headlines for Monday, May 25.
Lallana linked with shock move
Adam Lallana could be set for a shock switch across the city this summer - as Everton are reportedly interested in snapping him up on a free transfer.
The Liverpool midfielder is out of contract, and the Toffees are among a host of clubs chasing his signature, according to the Daily Star.
Lallana, 32, was an Everton fan growing up, which could perhaps play a role in any decision he makes.
Gomes on his injury return
Andre Gomes has revealed the secrets behind his swift return from a nasty ankle injury.
The midfielder fractured and dislocated his ankle in November following a tackle from Tottenham Hotspur attacker Son Heung-Min.
But he was fit and available to return by the end of February - making his comeback against Arsenal.
"I took time for myself to think about what happened - how much I wanted to get fit, I just took that time to ask everything, how was I going to build my confidence in the rehab?” he told Sky Sports.
"People answered my questions and we built everything back with small steps, every week. Everything was easier mentally because the people around me helped me to move in small goals."
Summer transfer strategy
Everton are rethinking their summer transfer strategy - with their budget likely to reduce.
With matches taking place behind closed doors and broadcast deals likely to be renegotiated, the financial picture for Premier League clubs has changed.
So the Toffees are likely to be focusing on just a few areas where they can improve the squad.
At centre-back, Everton have been watching Lille's Gabriel Magalhaes for some time in an effort to fill that defensive role - but they will be looking for a reduced transfer fee now after an initial valuation of £30million.
And in central midfield, it is possible that some of the unwanted squad players will need to leave the club before any new arrivals come to Goodison Park.
