Everton news and transfers LIVE – Matty Longstaff claim, David Brooks interest, Mehmet Zeki Celik talks

Former Chelsea winger could have what Everton and Ancelotti need

There is no doubt that Carlo Ancelotti has plenty of work to do during the summer transfer window.

Everton faltered towards the end of the 2019/20 Premier League campaign, capped off by a 3-1 final-day home defeat to relegated Bournemouth.

A combination of poor form and injuries saw the Toffees finish in 12th place, and improving on that next season will be the bare minimum for the Everton manager.

Reshaping his current squad will be the Italian’s first task, with new arrivals hopefully in place well before the big 2020/21 kick-off on September 12.

Everton supporters have seen some signs of improvement in the seven months that Ancelotti has been at the club, but it is clear signings will have to be made – and the manager’s brilliant reputation will no doubt see the club linked with plenty of big names.

However, one name that has already cropped is unheralded former Chelsea winger Jeremie Boga. He reportedly caught the eye of Ancelotti when he was Napoli manager and Sky Sports claim the interest has been retained at Everton.

The Blues are likely to face stiff competition for his signature, with the likes of Napoli, Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund also said to be interested. Nevertheless, it is worth looking at why Ancelotti holds Boga, 23, in such high regard.
