According to a report from the Mirror, Everton have agreed a £10million deal to sign Ashley Williams from Swansea City this summer.

The Welsh international has long been linked with a move away from the Liberty Stadium, but he has thus far remained with the Swans.

However, with Everton manager Ronald Koeman tasked with strengthening the squad and leading them up the table next season, it is no surprise to see him move for a new quality centre-back.

Williams will reportedly earn £75,000 a week at Goodison Park.

In other news, the Daily Mail claims Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj has asked to leave Old Trafford permanently this summer, with Everton allegedly keen on the Belgian international.

The youngster made his breakthrough under former United boss David Moyes but he struggled for game-time after the Scot left and now Jose Mourinho has reportedly told him he can head out on loan once again.

However, Januzaj is said to favour a permanent switch so he can get his career back on track and there is no doubt he would be a hit at Everton if he arrived.

And finally, the London Evening Standard claims Chelsea are closing in on a deal to bring Everton striker Romelu Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge.

The powerful forward struggled to make an impact at the Blues the first time round, inexplicably overlooked despite his talent. However it is now being reported that Chelsea manager Antonio Conte will bring the player back to London for around £60million.
