Everton round-up: Malcom rejection, McCarthy wanted and Osman on striker need

A selection of the latest news and gossip from Everton.

Malcom says no

Barcelona are reportedly back in for Brazilian winger Malcom, but the Barcelona forward has rejected any potential move to Goodison Park.

Marca reports that Everton, who were linked with the player in the summer, made enquiries to see if the player would be interested in a loan move in January.

However, the player respectfully declined the interest as he plans on trying to force his way into the Barcelona team over the next six months.

The 20-year-old joined Barcelona from Bordeaux in a deal reportedly worth £36.5 million in the summer.

McCarthy wanted


James McCarthy is wanted by West Ham United. The Daily Mail is suggesting that the midfielder is wanted on loan until the end of the season after struggling to earn back a first-team place after recovering from a horror leg injury.

Fulham and West Brom are also said to be keen on signing the player, whose Everton career has stalled because of injury trouble the last three seasons.

Osman on striker need

Leon Osman believes Everton need to bring in a new striker in January. The former Everton midfielder has told Sky Sports that his old club are ‘desperate’ for a new striker to win them close games.

Everton lost their last two games, both 1-0 losses against Brighton and Leicester.
