The latest players linked with an Everton exit…

Moise Kean – Carlo Ancelotti is prepared to give Kean a fresh start after speaking to the striker over his breach of discipline (Daily Mail, July 1)

Everton have expressed an interest in Napoli’s Hirving Lozano, and both he and Kean are represented by super-agent Mino Raiola, which may assist with negotiations (Corriere dello Sport, April 28)

Yannick Bolasie – The winger’s loan at Sporting Lisbon has come to an end, and the Portuguese club have not taken up the option to sign him for £4m meaning he will return to Everton at the end of the season.

Sandro Ramirez – Real Valladolid sporting director Miguel Angel Gomez has refused to rule out a permanent move for Everton loanee Ramirez.

Gomez told Radio Marca Valladolid: “Sandro has a contract with Everton, and we have to find a way around that.

“(We have to know) if he is comfortable here or not and wants to go on, then we can look at the characteristics of that operation and whether or not we can accept them.”

Ramirez, who has signed a short-term extension at Valladolid to finish the season, would need to take a wage cut and Everton would need to help “facilitate” the move (Sport Witness, April 30)

Jonjoe Kenny – Schalke say they want to extend the loan of Kenny for another season – as they can’t afford to buy the Everton defender.

Schalke boss David Wagner told Sky Sports: “He has done great for us since we signed him on loan. He’s a regular starter, he’s scored and given assists and he’s a great bloke as well.

“He’s highly respected in the dressing room and from our supporters. It looks like we won’t have the financial power to buy him and if Everton like to sell him then we are more or less chanceless.

“We are very keen to keep him at our club, and if there is a chance to extend the loan then obviously we’d like to speak.

“But with all the clubs it’s difficult to have conversations because nobody knows how much money we’ll have next season and in the summer and this makes it difficult to negotiate anything at the moment.” (Sky Sports, April 21)

Jonas Lossl – Huddersfield Town chief exec Mark Devlin has acknowledged Everton loanee Lossl is unlikely to stay into next season, not least because he has taken a significant pay cut to re-join the Terriers and push for a place at Euro 2020, which has now been delayed until next year. (Huddersfield Examiner, March 24)

Theo Walcott – The winger will be up for grabs this summer after failing to convince the Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti. Walcott has 15 months left on his current contract (The Mirror, March 29)
