Report: Everton plan to axe 15 players including Ademola Lookman, Leighton Baines and Jonjoe Kenny

Marco Silva is planning a summer clear-out.

Leighton Baines and Ademola Lookman are the headline names on a long list of players facing an Everton axe this summer, The Daily Mail reports.

Marco Silva is planning a major summer overhaul. And he will start by letting up to 15 players leave Goodison Park before next season.

Everton will listen to offers of around £20m for England U21 starlet Lookman. The 21-year-old is wanted by Crystal Palace and Red Bull Leipzig. And his former Leipzig manager Ralph Hasenhuttl is also lining him up for Southampton.

Baines could also be on his way out. The 34-year-old is a fan favourite after racking up over 400 appearances in 12 seasons with the Toffees. But his contract expires this summer and he will be allowed to leave after Lucas Digne pushed him to the bench this season.

Homegrown right-back Jonjoe Kenny is also on this list. Everton want a right-back and already have Seamus Coleman and Mason Holgate as their first-team options.

 

Back-up goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg could leave with Joao Virginia likely to step up. Jonas Lossl might also be joining on a free transfer (The Daily Mail).

Sandro Ramirez, Oumar Niasse, Yannick Bolasie, Mo Besic and Kevin Mirallas are all out on loan. And Silva sees no future for them at Everton so they will be granted permanent exits.

Meanwhile, striker flop Cenk Tosun and injury-prone midfielder James McCarthy are also allowed to leave.
