Some reports are claiming that Everton have had an offer rejected for Barcelona right-back Emerson.
The 21-year-old is currently on loan at Real Betis until next summer, where he has played 41 times in all competitions.
Emerson, who has one cap for Brazil, made his name in his home country with Ponte Preta and Atletico Mineiro before being signed by Barcelona in 2019.

I do hope that something happens later as we seem to be going very Brazilian/South American, in this Transfer Market. It also goes to show that he wants to address the right-back slot, and presumably having run the rule over Jonjoe Kenny on his return, does not see him being a part of it.

We have not signed anyone yet but if we get these 6 players on board we will be a completely transformed outfit next season.
Allan, Rodriguez, Doucouré, Emerson, Romero. [Moise wants to go back to Italy and we've inquired about Odsonne Eduard.]
How high can we go IF those six gel with our current best players?
Top 6 challengers for sure... higher than that? Leicester came pretty close to Champions League qualification last season, so dare to dream.

Like you say until they're seen either in a chippy, near Finch Farm or GP, or having a photo session with the shirt or the tea-lady, nothing can be taken as completed.
Still, looking positive on all fronts as it is though. I'm sure that Usmanov will become more involved publicly sooner or later, with a possible cash injection.

I was looking up what is popular in Brazil eating out, these Churrascarias restaurants sound like it is worth a trip out there.
Picanha. Barbecuing meat is something the Brazilians do very well. Churrascarias are specific barbecue restaurants which can now be found all over Brazil, but the tradition comes from the Gauchoculture of the south, where cowboys would cook meats skewered on metal spits over hot coals, seasoned simply with rock salt. The prime cut of meat now associated with this style of cooking is picanha – the top part of sirloin steak. This has a thick layer of fat which ensures the charred, smoky meat just melts in the mouth.

To make full use of Rodriguez potentially playing right flank, we need a fast and fit right-back able to overlap and then also get back rapidly.
This lad looks to tick a lot of boxes and a loan with purchase option could be ideal.

He's Colombian! Whatever he orders, I sincerely hope there's no coke with it! :-)

I think we'll end up getting Allan, James, Doucouré and possibly Zaha – watch this space!

Plenty of good talent in the British and Irish lower leagues.

Sorry about my disjointed post, I was thinking of Emerson and the Brazilian lads. I knew he was Colombian, honest!
By the way it was definitely him in the chippy, sausage dinner with a steak and kidney pudding on top he ordered. That 'I'm ready' six-pack of his will be down to a 1 [big] pack soon.

What I can see happening is The Messi fiasco Ending up with Barca going in for Richarlison, and let's be honest, if an offer comes close to the £143 Million, I can See Everton taking the money to rebuild.
I like Richarlison, but £100 million Plus bid would be hard to turn down, anyway all pure speculation on my side. But again, if Messi does end up leaving, they will want to bring in a big name and if so, we should screw Koeman and take him to the cleaners for the £143 Million.

Brands is still pursuing buying in youth as part of his youth development strategy, which looks like where future progress at Everton lies.

We still haven't offloaded any of the fringe dross we have – never mind the first-team dross and we are being linked with fancy-sounding named foreigners that we won't sign.
I'll be amazed if Ancelotti hasn't walked before Christmas with the shower of shit we have running the club.

Evergrande is so successful that the city of Guangzhou is building the world's biggest football stadium (in a lotus flower shape) that will seat 100,000, bigger than Camp Nou, at a cost of $1.7 billion. Big stage for Tyias, our Academy alumnus and onetime U-21 player of the year.
