Fikayo Tomori is on Everton's radar, with the club also taking offers for a number of players including Gylfi Sigurdsson and Fabian Delph.

What the papers say

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti is eyeing a move for Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori. The Times reports Ancelotti is keen to add the 22-year-old to Everton's list of recent additions – Allan, Abdoulaye Doucoure and James Rodriguez.

In order to help facilitate the move and claw back some money from their spending spree, the paper says Ancelotti is willing to let a number of players leave. In particular, the club is keen to take offers for Iceland midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson and England midfielder Fabian Delph.

According to The Guardian, Manchester City are preparing to make a play for Atletico Madrid defender Jose Gimenez, should Napoli refuse to budge on their £73.2m asking price for Kalidou Koulibaly. Although Koulibaly is a priority for the club, City bosses are unwilling to pay that much for the centre-back and are actively exploring alternatives, including Gimenez and Sevilla's Diego Carlos.

Manchester United are believed to be weighing up a move for Atalanta winger Amad Traore. The Manchester Evening News says United are one of a number of clubs to have approached Atalanta about the 18-year-old after he became the youngest player in history to score in his Serie A debut during Atalanta's 7-1 win over Udinese last season.
