It could be a busy summer at Goodison Park – involving playing coming to Everton as well as leaving?

The one we could be battling hardest to keep is Romelu Lukaku. It was recently reported the efforts to do so have seen a hefty £100m price tag put on him in a bid to fend off a return to Chelsea and further interest from the likes of Manchester United.

But one that could leave without too much of a fight is Gerard Deulofeu? The Everton winger, currently on loan with AC Milan, could return to former club Barcelona with them ‘firmly considering the option’ they have on re-signing him.

What about arrivals? Well, according to our friends at Vital Arsenal there’s an Everton interest in Sead Kolasinac, along with that of Arsenal, Manchester City and AC Milan – in fact an offer has reportedly been made but his destination could be the Gunners?

Sky Sports, in the past 24 hours or so, has claimed Arsenal, Everton, Manchester City and AC Milan have all proposed contract offers to Schalke defender Sead Kolasinac.

His contract with Schalke is up at the end of the season so Kolasinac is free to free to negotiate a deal elsewhere with Sky sources reporting this Premier League interest along with that of AC Milan – who are now under Chinese ownership.

According to Sky Sports a decision HADN’T been made and Kolasinac could yet sign a new deal with his current German club? This was an ‘outside chance’ but this Sky report also cited Sky in Italy as saying ‘he will sign for Arsenal.’

Such claims were followed up by the Daily Mail, who reported the Bosnian international has decided to come to Arsenal now that it’s likely Arsene Wenger will remain in North London? In fact the Mail say the left back has been informed this WILL be the case and he’ll become the first choice left back.

This uncertainty over Wenger was seen as a stumbling block to a deal for Kolasinac, 23, who has now agreed a four year deal?

A new left back probably wouldn’t be seen as the priority position for Ronald Koeman but if a player of Kolasinac’s standing, ability and rumoured interest could be secured we wouldn’t say no to the Bosnian would we?

Especially as a free agent, not that his wages would be reflective of such a ‘free’ arrival.
