Everton vs Southampton highlights: Ings and Richarlison score after  Ward-Prowse penalty miss - HampshireLive

Everton could still make a move for Kamaldeen Sulemana from Southampton in an estimated £30,000,000 move. However, the player is not considered a priority as they also assess other options, according to Fabrizio Romano via Give Me Sport. 

The Toffees could still make a move for the striker despite the addition of Portuguese forward Beto from Udinese. The Premier League side are still in the market for a forward option, with Demarai Gray now likely to make the move to Saudi Arabia.

It was confirmed by Mike McGrath that a £23,000,000 bid had been submitted which was rejected as the Championship side look for at least £30,000,00  to sell him. With Beto’s £25.7 million move now gone through the club would have to sell to be able to splash out a similar fee this window with Alex Iwobi a likely candidate to be offloaded for approximately £20,000,000.

Speaking on the deal transfer guru Romano suggested that the deal could still happen, although it is not a priority for Sean Dyche: 

“He’s not a priority, I think. He’s still a player they have on their list, but he’s not a priority target in that position. Let’s see what happens with Iwobi leaving the club and then it will be more clear what they want to do in that position. Sulemana is an option, but he’s not the only one.”

Everton have been knocked back in their pursuit of Wilfred Gnonto from Leeds United, who could now remain at the club following a strike from the player at the start of the season.

I suspect this is one of many names being considered by Everton. Often clubs will have a pool of candidates that they will explore and once they saw the price tag for the player quickly moved on to look at other options, without closing the door on a potential move should the price lower.
