Royal Blue: The Everton FC Podcast
Royal Blue: Gabriel, Doucouré and Allan transfers discussed as pre-season gets under way
Friday, 21 August
With Everton kick-starting their pre-season this weekend, the Royal Blue podcast returns after its own mini summer break. But before Phil Kirkbride, Adam Jones, Dave Prentice and Gavin Buckland get stuck into Saturday's trip to Blackpool, they talk the big topic among Evertonians at present - transfers, or their lack of them. What we do know is that the Blues have pulled out of a deal for Lille centre-back Gabriel Magalhaes but are pursuing midfielders Abdoulaye Doucouré and Allan from Watford and Napoli respectively. The panel discuss the merits of all that as well as which players could and must go to help fund what would be two big-money moves if they both came off. And there's also time to talk two former Blues, Romelu Lukaku and Ronald Koeman, who have both been in the news this week. Enjoy.
