Everton & Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori
According to Times reporter Paul Joyce, Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori could soon be an Everton player:
Chelsea have offered (Everton) 21-year-old centre back Fikayo Tomori on loan after refusing to sell Kurt Zouma.
Tomori spent last season out on loan at Derby County.
The 21-year-old English centre-half played 55 times in all competitions for Derby last season. Tomori scored two goals and assisted one.
During the summer, Tomori represented England at the Toulon Tournament.
Loan deal for Monaco’s Djibril Sidibe
Paul Joyce also reported that Djibril Sidibe is close to joining Everton as well:
Everton have agreed to sign the Monaco right back Djibril Sidibe on loan.
To be clear, at the time of writing, Everton have yet to confirm the Sidibe deal.
Everton set to finalise deal for Djibril Sidibe on loan from AS Monaco. Medical scheduled for tomorrow.

Will Fikayo Tomori & Djibril Sidibe start for Everton?
Presuming Everton get the loan deals for Fikayo Tomori and Djibril Sidibe over the line before Thursday’s transfer deadline, will these defenders actually get into Marco Silva’s team?
Starting with Sidibe, he faces the challenge of trying to dislodge Seamus Coleman out of the XI.
As for Tomori, the centre-half appears to have Michael Keane and Yerry Mina above him in the pecking order.
Moise Kean vs Crystal Palace
Everton start their Premier League campaign with an away trip to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
The Times believe that Moise Kean, who joined Everton from Juventus in a 30 million pound deal, will be ready to start the match against the Eagles.
