Everton Taps Brakes on Naming Rights Deal for $694M Stadium

Everton are hoping to bring West Ham forward Maxwel Cornet to Goodison Park ahead of the transfer deadline, according to reports.

The Toffees are looking to bring in more reinforcements at the top end of the pitch despite already bringing in Beto, Youssef Chermiti, Arnaut Danjuma and Jack Harrison in attacking positions this summer.

Everton have got off to a terrible start in the Premier League with three losses from their first three matches against Fulham, Aston Villa and Wolves – but they have a very winnable match against newly-promoted Sheffield United on Saturday.

And Sean Dyche will be hoping to have more signings to call upon when they face the Blades at Bramall Lane with the Daily Telegraph insisting that they are ‘preparing an offer’ for West Ham forward Cornet.

The Toffees want the former Lyon man ‘on a season-long loan’ with Cornet a target for the Premier League club before he moved to West Ham.

Demarai Gray has been the subject of interest from the Saudi Pro League and ‘could leave before the deadline’ with Dyche looking to make sure he has Cornet lined up to make sure he’s not unable to fill holes before the deadline.

West Ham were hoping to complete a deal for Corinthians forward Yuri Alberto but Football Insider have claimed today that a deal has now ‘collapsed’.
