The summer transfer window officially opened on Friday and there has been a flourish of activity already. According to today’s BBC Gossip Column there’s going to be plenty more movement in the coming weeks.
There has been much speculation over Juan Mata’s Man Utd future since the appointment of Jose Mourinho and there are reports that new signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been given Mata’s squad number. It is believed that the Spaniard is in advanced talks with Everton and the bookies make him 1/4 to move to Goodison Park this summer.
New Everton manager Ronald Koeman will have a job on his hands keeping key players and there are fresh reports this morning that highly-rated centre-back John Stones is being targeted by Pep Guardiola. You can get 1/2 on Pep to get his man, whilst the bookies are offering 3/1 on John Stones to be an Everton player at the end of the window.
Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku is another player that Koeman will be vying to keep hold of and reports suggest the club are to hold fresh talks with the player after new owner Farhad Moshiri valued him at £75m. Will he stay or will he go? He is evens to stay at Everton, with a return to Chelsea priced at 3/1 and French champions, PSG, at 12/1.
