Everton round-up: Lookman ready, Gomes updates and Bernard’s ‘bad feeling’

A selection of the latest news and gossip from Everton.

Lookman chance

Everton boss Marco Silva has hinted that Ademola Lookman may get his chance against Newcastle United tomorrow.

Many fans want to see the youngster get a chance ahead of the experienced Theo Walcott, who is struggling for form.

Silva told his press conference, as reported by the Liverpool Echo, that he is ‘100 per cent’ in contention to start the game and admitted he might already deserve to be in the starting XI.

Gomes update

Silva was also speaking about the chance of signing Andre Gomes permanently. The Times are reporting that Everton have a very good chance of doing so.

They suggest that the player has no intention of returning to parent club Barcelona where he had lost his first-team spot.

 

Everton are hoping his strong objection to returning may help Everton manage to talk the price down.

The Daily Star build on the report, suggesting Gomes will cost Everton at least £29 million.

Bernard’s bad feeling

Bernard has told the Liverpool Echo about how defeat in the Merseyside derby made him feel. Everton lost 1-0 at Anfield after a mistake from Jordan Pickford.

The Brazilian stated that while he was looking onward to the Newcastle game tomorrow night, he also had a ‘bad feeling’ about the way they lost the game.
