The excitement is beginning to intensify as we’re linked with a whole host of new arrivals. With less than a month remaining in the window, we can expect the prospect of new signings, and could Jamaal Lascelles make the switch to Goodison Park?
According to the Northern Echo, we’re poised to “firm up” our interest in the services of the Newcastle United captain, Jamaal Lascelles. The Magpies have already rejected a bid from West Ham for the 24-year-old, and it seems that we have a fight on our hands to secure his signature.
Here’s how Everton supporters have reacted to the rumours on Twitter.
That’s about 6 centre halves now lol ????

I'd love Lascelles at Everton.
We should bid £40mil or £50mil plus Ashley Williams.

The 24-year-old is an accomplished talent, and he illustrates exemplary leadership qualities. The Englishman has a useful tendency to dictate aerial battles, and he also displays good ability on the ball – an attribute that’s in keeping with Marco Silva’s style of play. He’s a terrific player who is blessed with tremendous potential. He would be an excellent signing.
