Anyone fancy a zany transfer rumour for breakfast?

Of course you do!

Football Insider report Everton are keeping tabs on Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli.

Insider also reckon Harry Winks is on the radar for a potential January loan move while goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga could be targeted for a cut-price move.

File this one under the ‘Let Me Wake Up And See If I’m Still Asleep’ category for now.
