Antonee Robinson race

Everton have joined the race to land former player Antonee Robinson according to reports.

Alan Myers has suggested the Blues are wanting to buy back the full-back from Wigan Athletic.

The Latics are said to have accepted a £2m bid from Sheffield United earlier this week but now Carlo Ancelotti's side and Fulham are both claimed to be in the mix.

Blues contact Thiago Silva's representatives - reports

Everton have made contact with Thiago Silva’s representatives, according to reports.

According to Calciomercato, the Blues and Serie A outfit Fiorentina have contact the Brazilian’s representatives to ‘ask for information’.

Silva’s contract with PSG is due to expire, and will more than likely become a free agent when the French club’s run in the Champions League comes to a close.

The Blues have previously linked with a move for the 35-year-old centre-back, and it remains to be seen whether Everton’s interest is genuine, and if the player would want to come to Goodison Park.
