It’s now officially a week before the summer transfer window closes.

Premier League clubs have just seven days to complete any remaining deals ahead of the 23.00 BST cut-off point on Tuesday, August 31.

The rumour mill continues to churn as this summer’s window heads towards a conclusion and there is plenty of news and gossip coming out of Everton.

Here’s the latest from Goodison Park this Tuesday morning.

Richarlison could be Mbappe’s replacement

Paris Saint-Germain have explored the idea of Everton forward Richarlison replacing Kylian Mbappe should he leave this summer.

The France international is into the final year of his contract and PSG could look to cash in on him rather than losing him for free next summer.

If Mbappe, who has been the subject of interest from an unnamed English club, does depart then the Parisians could look to swoop for Richarlison.

Jebbison bid rejected

The Blues have had a bid turned down for Sheffield United youngster Daniel Jebbison.

The 18-year-old striker played four times for the Blades as they were relegated from the Premier League last season.

Jebbison's first goal for the Yorkshire outfit arrived in his side's 1-0 victory at Goodison Park in May.

Everton have tabled a £5 million offer for the forward but that has been rebuffed by United.

Jebbison's been linked with loan moves to League One duo Sunderland and Doncaster this summer. (TEAMtalk)

Newcastle have yet to make a decision on Sean Longstaff's future.

The midfielder is into the final 12 months of his Magpies deal and risk losing him for free next summer.

Rafa Benitez is keen to reunite with Longstaff at Everton, having given him his breakthrough when he was manager at St James' Park.

Small severs ties

Thierry Small has cancelled his scholarship at Everton as he closes in on a move to Southampton.


The left-back became the club's youngest player aged 16 years and 176 days when coming off the bench in a 3-0 FA Cup defeat of Sheffield Wednesday in January.

Small has been offered a professional contract to remain on Merseyside but turned it down.

But with 12 months remaining of his scholarship, the 17-year-old has opted to cut ties with the Toffees.

Small now looks set to join Southampton and Everton will receive a compensation fee likely to be decided by tribunal.

It could be up to £5 million. (Football Insider)
