  1. Calvert-Lewin to train next week - Lampard

    Brentford v Everton (Sat, 15:00 BST)


    Frank Lampard offers his team news update ahead of tomorrow's trip to Brentford.

    "Tom Davies we hope is in contention. He had a small feeling in his groin before the Fleetwood game and pulled out of that game.

    "He'll hopefully be in the squad. Abdoulaye Doucoure is injured. Dominic Calvert-Lewin will train next week.

    "Other than that, pretty much the same as where we were going into Fleetwood but got minutes into some players who are returning from injury or lacking fitness.

    On Calvert-Lewin

    "He’s slightly ahead of schedule, we must be calm, we can't push him at this stage.

    "He's working really hard out on grass. Will he be available for Liverpool next week? That will tough, but we can look at the games after that hopefully if all goes to plan."

  2. Post update

    Brentford v Everton (Sat, 15:00 BST)


    Frank Lampard wants Everton's recruitment to be completed much earlier in the years ahead.

    "I hope that the powers that be understand that this isn't the perfect way to do it.

    "It's far too long into the season, there's no doubt. We want to look at the season with a balance, so we can construct a squad from the start of the season to the end.

    "Now, we're going to be, by the time the window shuts, nigh on six games in and for me that doesn't feel right and I hope they get that right next time."

  3. Lampard hopes to see Alli flourish at Besiktas

    Brentford v Everton (Sat, 15:00 BST)


    Frank Lampard on Dele Alli joining Besiktas on loan.

    "I think it's the right thing. I think it hasn't worked out for Dele here for different reasons. And can go there now hopefully, play games, and have success.

    "It will help him personally help us and we'll review it through the year and obviously at the end of the season."

  4. Chelsea have not bid £60m for Gordon - Lampard

    Brentford v Everton (Sat, 15:00 BST)


    Frank Lampard also says Chelsea have not bid £60m for striker Anthony Gordon.

    "No, hasn't come in. He's our player so he's in the squad for tomorrow. He's a huge player for us.

    "I said it last week not only is he a big value for the club. If you want to talk financially, but more importantly for me a big value to the squad and the team.

    "They haven't bid £60m."

  5. Lampard on attacking options

    Brentford v Everton (Sat, 15:00 BST)


    Everton boss Frank Lampard on how he would feel if the club fail to sign a striker before the deadline.

    "It will happen. And we have Dominic Calvert Lewin coming back, as I say so but it's an area that we're well aware of.

    "Then the last thing we wanted to do is the last thing that we should do, is bring a player in on a whim or in a rush, there's not going to improve the squad, now and generally and I think those those are clear things if there have been any mistakes previously, we don't want to make those.

    "We want to work together joined up to make sure we make the right decisions for the club in the right areas, and it's really important that we do that."

  6. Everton close to signing Maupay

    BBC Sport

    Everton are close to signing Brighton forward Neal Maupay.

    Manager Frank Lampard is keen on bringing in attacking reinforcements after losing Richarlison to Tottenham in the summer and an early-season injury to Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

    In his Friday press conference, Lampard would not confirm if Maupay was due to arrive at Goodison.

    But when asked if there would be signings in attack by the end of the window, he told BBC Sport: "It will happen."

    Maupay has scored 26 goals in 102 appearances for Brighton, having signed for the Seagulls in 2019 for £16m from Brentford.

  9. Your thoughts on Isak's fee

    Newcastle United

    Neil: Isak looked really promising in the Euros but I think £60m is excessive, £30m would be the top they should have to pay. We need some more striking options that’s for sure, I just hope that Newcastle aren’t taken for a ride due to their new-found wealth.

    Tom: Not sure how Isak can be considered too much with Anthony Gordon being sold for more! The market is crazy but there is a going rate right now; judging by the above it doesn't look like a bad deal where I'm sitting!

    William: I think that £60m is way too much for Isak. However Joelinton was a lot and is great. We need to strengthen up front and the only way to do that is with money.

  10. 'Isak not worth £60m' - Balague

    Newcastle United

    Alexander Isak is not worth the £60m Newcastle are set to pay for him, according to Guillem Balague.

    Real Sociedad's Swedish international will become the Magpies' record signing, smashing the £40m they paid for Joelinton in 2019.

    Balague told BBC Radio 5 Live's Euro Leagues podcast: "What a deal. Everyone is amazed.

    "We knew of the interest of Newcastle towards Isak. It makes sense in the way that Eddie Howe wants to run the team. This is a guy that is very fast, drives well with the ball, not the greatest finisher – he only scored six last season – but there is the potential there.

    "I’m not sure you pay £60m for a potential player, but in any case it’s one of those. If you’ve got the money, why not?

    "I don’t think he is worth that money, but he had a buyout clause. Of course Isak trebles his wages, so there wasn’t going to be any doubt from him."

  11. 'Wolves an outstanding team'

    Wolves v Newcastle (Sun, 14:00 BST)

    Newcastle United

    Eddie Howe on Wolves, who have picked up just one point from their opening three games.

    "Very early to draw too many conclusions. Wolves are an outstanding team and I think they've recruited very well.

    "You look at the quality they have in midfield, three or four very good technicians in there and some good attacking players as well.

    "We don't underestimate them at all and Bruno [Lage] has done a great job there. I think they're a dangerous team."

  12. 'Doesn't look too good' - Howe on Krafth injury

    Wolves v Newcastle (Sun, 14:00 BST)

    Newcastle United

    Eddie Howe also says Emil Krafth is an injury concern with the Swedish defender set to go for a scan today.

    Krafth was stretchered off in Wednesday's League Cup win over Tranmere and Howe admits "it doesn't look too good".

    "It's a real shame for Emil and for us but until we get the scan results, we don't know," said Howe.

  13. Dubravka exit out of my hands - Howe

    Wolves v Newcastle (Sun, 14:00 BST)

    Newcastle United

    Eddie Howe on goalkeeper Martin Dubravka being linked with Manchester United.

    "I don't think he's in talks with Manchester United. There has been contact between the clubs, but that will be something that will continue probably, to happen, as in the discussions.

    "But in terms of an actual final outcome, I'm very reluctant to lose any important players to the group, so that's a decision that will be out of my hands."

  14. 'Isak will be a big player for us'

    Wolves v Newcastle (Sun, 14:00 BST)

    Newcastle United

    Eddie Howe admits his search for attacking reinforcements became more urgent following Callum Wilson's hamstring injury, which is likely to keep the striker out for a "couple of weeks".

    Howe said: "Naturally with Callum's injury - which we don't believe to be serious, by the way, we're hopeful that Callum will only be out for a couple of weeks - but naturally we reacted slightly off that in terms of we were always looking for an attacking player, but it changed our focus maybe slightly on the type.

    "But we're delighted to hopefully sign Alex, who will be a big player for us."

  15. Howe hopes Newcastle sign Isak in time for Wolves

    Wolves v Newcastle (Sun, 14:00 BST)

    Newcastle United

    Newcastle head coach Eddie Howe says he is hopeful of completing a club-record deal for Real Sociedad striker Alexander Isak.

    The 22-year-old Sweden international was on Tyneside on Friday with the Magpies attempting to push through the £60m deal.

    Howe said: "It's not completed. We hope to get it done."

    When asked if Isak could be signed in time to face Wolves on Sunday, Howe added: "Yes, fingers crossed. There's no guarantee with these things because we're in other people's hands, but hopefully."

  18. Is Besiktas loan move Alli's last chance?


    Dele Alli was once one of England's brightest prospects but after a sharp decline he has headed to Turkey in the hope of reinvigorating his career.

    A move from Tottenham to Everton last season was supposed to provide the fresh start he needed but he departs the Toffees having failed to score a goal or provide an assist in 13 appearances for Frank Lampard's side.

    Only 26, there's plenty of time for Alli to rediscover the early form of his career that made him a Tottenham and Three Lions regular and he will spend the rest of this campaign on loan at Besiktas.

    But what went wrong for Alli? And is this move to Turkey his final chance to return to the heights he once enjoyed?
