Everton round-up: Italian approach rejected, Mina’s big blow, player ‘pleading’ for transfer

Lookman rejection

Eveton have rejected an approach from AC Milan for talented winger Ademola Lookman. As reported by The Mirror, the Italians made an enquiry for the player this week.

However, Everton ‘firmly’ rejected the approach.

Lookman has been one of the few positives in a difficult period for Everton recently and the club has no desire to sell him.

Mina injury

Sport in Spain is reporting that Yerry Mina has suffered a serious injury to his fifth metatarsal. He limped out of the FA Cup upset against Millwall with the injury.

Everton had to wait to hand the Colombian his debut after he suffered a similar injury to the fourth metatarsal on the same foot.

It seems Everton will be without their summer signing for some time.

Gueye request

As reported by Sky Sports, Idrissa Gana Gueye has handed in a transfer request at Everton. The Senegal international has been linked with PSG recently. A bid of £21.5 million has been made for the player, which Everton have rejected.

Everton deny an official request has been handed in but the player has apparently written to the club ‘pleading’ for a dream move to the French giants.

Everton do not want to lose a key player but will be tested before the transfer window shuts on Thursday.
