Can anyone Copy and paste this behind the pay wall.

Everton are showing interest in Burnley’s Dwight McNeil in addition to impending deals for Andros Townsend and Demarai Gray.

McNeil, the England Under-21 international, has been checked on by the Merseyside club, while Aston Villa are also showing interest in the winger. Everton rate McNeil, who scored one of the goals of the season in a 2-1 Burnley win at Goodison Park in March, at around £25 million.

Burnley have shown in recent seasons that they sell high or not at all. James Tarkowski was the subject of numerous bids from West Ham United last term, the last of which topped £30 million, but Burnley refused to sanction his sale.

Rafa Benítez, the Everton manager, wants more pace and wide men in his team with James Rodríguez available for transfer, and is closing in on deals for Gray and Townsend.

Gray, 25, has an exit clause of about £1.5 million having moved to Bayer Leverkusen from Leicester City in January. Townsend, 30, is available on a free transfer.

Benítez, who took charge at Goodison Park last month, wants to improve the supply line to last season’s leading scorer, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, and the duo represent minimal outlay, with Everton needing to comply with profit and sustainability rules.

Outlining his plans last week, Benítez said: “It is very easy to see that we have a great centre forward. He’s [Calvert-Lewin] very good in the air, he can score goals.

“But we have to provide him with good crosses, good passes. We can improve in these areas and, from the wide areas, the crosses will come. When we can do that, the team will be a little bit better.”

Townsend, who worked with Benítez at Newcastle United in 2016, is without a club after his contract with Crystal Palace expired. Gray made 12 appearances for the Bundesliga side Leverkusen in the second half of last season.

Everton have already signed Asmir Begovic, 34, as an understudy to the England No 1, Jordan Pickford. Begovic has left Bournemouth and will fill the void vacated by the Sweden international Robin Olsen, who spent last season on loan at Goodison Park from Roma.

Everton beat Blackburn Rovers 1-0 in a pre-season friendly on Saturday with Jean-Philippe Gbamin scoring the only goal.

We aren’t getting McNeil for anything near £25 million. He’s young, English, skilful & fundamental to Burnley’s play. It would be £40 million plus (unless he’s only got one year left on his contract or Burnley are in the shit financially), which just isn’t worth it for me.

Never wrong
I don't see how we can be letting this fella go if someone else in the squad happens to be a nonce.

No but seriously, we can't let him go. We've got very little quality and creative flair. I know unnamed player hasn't been putting the graft in for too long but he's our 2nd best midfielder. Maybe the drop from him is somewhat explained now.

If we happen to lose both in the same Summer, we're in big trouble if the new signings don't work out for whatever reason.

He can't be let go.

he's worth keeping for this season and letting him go for free next summer even before this nonce stuff.

You'd think so but it seems like a formality he's going, or is it just me who gets that idea?

I think he was defo offski. But he's done a few vids/posts since which have given me hope.

We need to throw everything at him to convince him to stay for at least this year, though.
