Everton prepares £52.5m for Belotti bid

liverpoolecho: Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti wants the Toffees to make a bid worth around €60million (£52.5million) for Torino striker Andrea Belotti, according to reports

The 26-year-old has 15 goals from 31 games in all competitions for Torino this season, including six goals from his six Europa League outings, and Ancelotti is said to be keen to bring him to Goodison Park.

Despite interest from Inter Milan, Napoli and Roma, Italian publication Tuttosport claim that it is Everton’s offer which is currently the most attractive to Torino, though the Serie A side remain reluctant to lose their star man.

Holgate admits goal to be Everton captain

Mason Holgate has expressed his desire in becoming Everton captain one day, but that he has no intentions of usurping current club skipper Seamus Coleman just yet.

“Obviously that would be a massive, massive honour,” the Toffees defender said when asked if he hopes to be named captain in the future during a Q&A with fans on the official club website .

“It would be great to do that but at the moment we’ve got Seamus [Coleman] who’s a fantastic captain and has helped me massively ever since I’ve been at the club and done so many things for me. I think the whole changing room has got so much respect for him.

“So to learn off him and have him as a captain at the moment is great and I think the whole changing room can say that and vouch for that themselves.”

Premier League clubs look for crisis talks with broadcasters

Top flight English clubs are pushing for crisis talks with Sky Sports and BT Sport in order to work out a compromise in case the Premier League is forced to conclude early.

Clubs could face a bill of up to £750million if they cannot fulfill their contracts with the broadcasters according to The Mirror , which would add further financial strain during an already difficult time.

That figure includes agreements with foreign broadcasters too, with clubs expecting to pay back huge amounts of cash if they cannot complete the season as planned.

The amount owed by each club would depend on how many of their games had already been broadcast and there is increasing pressure to at least play out the remainder of the season behind closed doors in order to satisfy these TV deals.
