Sky Sports reported on June 1 that Marco Silva is keen to be reunited with the 6ft 2in defensive midfielder having worked with him during his spell in charge of Sporting, and the player could potentially be available on a free if he succeeds in terminating his contract with the Portuguese club.

Everton supporters, who have urged their club to sign another 26-year-old attacking World Cup ace with one describing him as “much better than Gylfi”, were quick to have their say on his latest display via social media, and while one said “William Carvalho is awful”, another said “bet we pay £50m for him”.
