Everton ‘table bid’ for Lyon’s Jake O’Brien

Everton have ‘tabled’ a £16.8 million bid for Lyon defender Jake O’Brien, according to a report from French outlet Foot01. Everton are in the midst of a financial and ownership crisis - nevertheless, this has not stopped them from being active in the ongoing summer transfer window.

The Toffees aren’t the only Premier League club in the race for his signature, however - Nottingham Forest are also believed to be interested in a move for the player. Furthermore, Lyon will owe Crystal Palace 50% of the transfer fee they receive - due to this, they will hold out to see if a larger bid comes in for now.

Wolves ’plotting’ transfer move for QPR ace Jake Clarke-Salter

With the departure of Max Kilman to West Ham United, Wolves need a new centre-back. To replace their outgoing captain, they have eyed up QPR’s Jake Clarke-Salter, according to Football Insider.

Despite this, they are in the midst of a race for his signature. Celtic, Crystal Palace, Burnley and Bournemouth are all also reportedly interested - as such, Wolves will have a fight on their hands if they want to bring the Chelsea academy product to the club over the course of the coming weeks.
