Chukwueze to Join Iwobi at Everton

  Villarreal winger, Samuel Chukwueze, could be playing next to Alex Iwobi at Everton next season, according to The Athletic. Chukwueze is back on the radar of Premier League clubs. But it is Everton that is now leading the race to sign the Nigerian star. New Toffees boss, Rafa Benitez, is said to be an admirer of the 22-year-old, who has a £71million release clause in his current contract. Chukwueze, who is under contract with Villarreal until 2023, has also been linked with Liverpool and Manchester United in the Premier League. If he however makes the move to Goodison Park, he would be linking up with fellow Super Eagles, Iwobi, who joined from Arsenal two seasons ago.

Benitez set to be named Everton boss

Rafael Benitez is set to be announced as the new Everton manager on Wednesday. Former Liverpool boss Benitez, 61, has agreed a three-year contract to become Carlo Ancelotti's successor at Goodison Park after the Italian resigned from his post to return to Real Madrid on June 1. The Spaniard, who will become the Toffees' fifth permanent manager in as many years, has received a mixed reaction from the Everton fanbase following news he is to be the club's next boss. A threatening banner seemingly aimed at Benitez, reading "we know where you live, don't sign", was placed near his Merseyside home on Monday. Benitez's arrival will come 11 years after he left Anfield, where he spent six years as Liverpool manager, winning the Champions League and FA Cup. Since leaving Liverpool...

Everton Keep European Dream Alive With Wolves win

Everton kept their hopes of European qualification alive as the return of home fans at Goodison Park sparked them into life with a 1-0 win over Wolves. This is already guaranteed to be Everton's worst home season in league football, taking just 19 points before this game but buoyed by noise from the stands Richarlison's header (48) was the difference between the teams. Wolves failed to create any problems for Everton after falling behind, having just one shot in the final 42 minutes as their season is ending with a big whimper. The result means Everton remain in eighth, but takes them level on points with Tottenham, who lost at home to Aston Villa, in sixth.

Jebbison Joy as Everton European Hopes Hang by Thread

Everton's hopes of qualifying for Europe hang by a thread after 17-year-old Daniel Jebbison sealed Sheffield United's 1-0 win at Goodison Park with his first Premier League goal on his first top-flight start. The Canadian-born forward became the competition's youngest goalscorer on their full debut, and it is doubtful whether he will find the net with an easier chance against a static home defence. Earlier this season, Jebbison was on loan at Vanarama National League North side Chorley and only got his first taste of first-team football with the Blades as a 65th-minute substitute last weekend. But his goal and an inspired performance from goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale were enough to consign Carlo Ancelotti's side to a ninth home defeat, equalling their worst record from 1950-51 an...

Villa Win to Dent Everton European Hopes

Anwar El Ghazi's 80th-minute strike dented Everton's European hopes as Aston Villa secured a hard-fought 2-1 win at Goodison Park. Ollie Watkins' 14th Premier League goal of the season put Villa ahead after a mistake from Mason Holgate (13) but Dominic Calvert-Lewin restored parity when he met Lucas Digne's corner (19). But with the game meandering towards a draw, El Ghazi was afforded too much time to curl a shot into the far corner to clinch an eighth Premier League away win of the season for Dean Smith's side. The result means Everton remain in eighth place - nine points off the Champions League places with five games remaining - while Villa rise to ninth.
