It was his free-kick that scored Jarad Branthwaite’s equalizer against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last December.

Sky Sports’ Jamie Carragher:

“It’s a lot of money (£40million) for a young player who’s just emerging on the scene, but I don’t know how Everton will take it. It’s their current position with a lack of attacking players.”

“He is the club’s only great hope. The supporters are not deaf at Everton. They have lost their first two games and they know they are going to have a difficult season. They are attacking. They need a good player to come in, so there’s no way they can let him go.

“Especially because he’s a local kid and he’s the one the fans wear hats for.
