Olsen joined the Blues on a season-long loan transfer deadline day last October as Carlo Ancelotti sought to bring in competition for Jordan Pickford.
It is being reported that the club agreed a fee with Roma in the event they wanted to keep him long-term and both the Echo and Paul Joyce of The Times are carrying quotes from Ancelotti suggesting Everton will follow through: “I think we are going to talk with him and his agent to find a solution for him to be here permanently.”

But, if we've agreed a fee already, not much can be done.

I still can't fathom why we got Jonas Lössl, which seemed to be good business at the time, free transfer, Premier League experience etc. Since he has been with us I don't recall him having a single game. He was loaned back to Huddersfield at one point.
Why he has appeared on the bench alongside Olsen (2 keepers) is another mystery, hopefully someone can explain what's going here with that one.

I think Pickford improved slightly this last few months, but has a long way to go to convince me he is the long-term answer. There's still hope but still too many awkward moments and poor decision-making for my liking and if Carlo starts Olsen instead of Pickford I am not disappointed. That says a lot about our supposed No 1.

Also, while I doubt Olsen would ever represent an upgrade on Pickford, he's at least good enough to challenge him, which is more than you could say about Stek, Robles and, especially, Lossl in recent years.

Swedens no 1 and lots of experience.

Well as Pickford is, I feel relaxed, when crosses come in and Olsen is between the sticks.
Also makes sense to send Bernard in the other direction, trimming our wage bill and not having to pay anything for Olsen.
