The 27-year-old Belgian, linked with the Blues earlier this month, has a year remaining on his existing contract with the French champions and has expressed his desire to stay but could be moved on if PSG feel the need to cash in before his deal runs out.
According to the Euro United website, Everton haven't made a formal offer to the French club yet; if the story is true, Marcel Brands is presumably sounding the player out first.
The Dutchman is believed to be in the market for a long-term right-back alternative to Seamus Coleman who turns 31 this year and there are reports that Jonjoe Kenny, the Irishman's current deputy, could be farmed out on loan next season.
Update 24 May According to the Manchester Evening News, Manchester United have moved ahead of Everton as the likely destination for Muenier.

Although I believe that Burnley have enquired about taking JJK on loan, or on a permanent basis, so there could be some substance to this story, but can't see us getting him cheaply, even though he has only a year left on his contract.
Again encouraging that we are looking at players of his quality, or similar, but I always hope deep down that Marcel Brands introduces some unearthed gems, like he has a reputation for recruiting in the Netherlands.
The Santiago Sosa story has gone quiet too. Could be the dreaded Work Permit issues impeding progress.

I 'm not impressed with either Holgate or Kenny as permanent competition for that spot.

Generally speaking an excellent player on his day though a bit inconsistent.
Hed certainly challenge Coleman and possibly replace him. He wont be cheap. In the region of £20m Id expect.

Again, don't expect any signings until we've shipped a few, so let's wait and see what happens.

Isn't that the definition of tapping up?
8 Posted 21/05/2019 at 19:13:41
Makes more sense to bring in someone younger to groom as a long-term replacement (particularly if Brands and Silva have doubts about Kenny).

And he also scored against the RS last year:
He is well beyond Seamus' abilities in attack, and clearly he'd be the starter. I love Coleman, but this guy would upgrade the side in the same way Digne did.

Keane played all last season on a foot so infected it bled through his boot, and he never said a word publicly even as he was being criticized for his play.
This season he came back in four weeks from a fractured skull, and he never once flinched from an aerial challenge.
I'd say he's all man and then some.
But in answer to your question, my captain would be Siggy. No better example of hard work and commitment, and he's more vocal and demonstrative than Keane.

From what I've read, Meunier's form has fallen away but I stand to be corrected by those with more insight.

You beat me to it. I remember being told that Digne was very defensive. Shows that you dont really know a player until he actually plays for us

Talk of more clear outs and mediocre signings is no indication that we have a wise man at the helm.
We need to make a couple of astute signings (one being a character player who can lead the team) to knit our team together.
Once we have made the signings we can think about off loading a couple of players.
And there is nothing wrong with having 31 year olds in the team. We need experience. It is all about balance.

Come on, these pages are to keep us amused in the off-season, nothing more.

I'd always have a centre-half as some of our best captains have played there. Labone, Lyons, Ratcliffe, Watson, Weir etc. Yes. I know Lyons played a number of positions but he was best at centre-half for me. Funny what the armchair fan sees that the matchgoing fan doesn't.

As for your faith in the management team, you act like the last transfer window never happened. You know - the one that produced Richarlison, Digne, Bernard, etc...

This time of year agents are working overtime either to get their players to new clubs or to increase their salary at the present club. So if you want to increase his wages release stories to the press that x club want to buy him and pay him double what he is getting from his present club. Same rule applies to agents of players who are looking for a new club, let the press know that there are 2 or 3 clubs after him, then potential buyers up the ante to get him. Talk about not being able to fool all the people all of the time these agents are past masters at it.

I want to see a couple of excellent signings sooner rather than later... then maybe I might start feeling a bit more confident. Memories of that Milwall game still dominate my thinking!
