The goalie, who signed for Everton in 2017, only has 18 months left on his current deal.

It is not clear why new terms have not yet been agreed, but it has left some of the Premier League’s biggest clubs watching the situation closely.

Going Going Jon

Jonjo Shelvey’s Newcastle future is in doubt after the star was injured – and the club eye replacements.

He has to play two more matches to trigger a one-year contract extension at St James’ Park, according to the Mail.

Meanwhile Newcastle have been linked to high-profile replacements such as Chelsea’s Jorginho and Leicester’s Youri Tielemans. Both of their contracts expire at the end of the season.

Gakpo in Liverpool

According to reports, Cody Gakpo has landed in Merseyside ahead of his move to Liverpool being sealed.

Gakpo’s £44million deal will see him handed a contract until the summer of 2028.

BREAKING: Chelsea sign Fofana

Chelsea have confirmed the signing of striker David Datro Fofana from Molde.

The deal is worth £10.5million.

The 20-year-old will join the club on January 1.

Fofana who represents the Ivory Coast, has netted four goals in the Conference League this season after playing in 10 games.

Domestically, in Norway, he managed 17 in 29 matches last season.

Foxes aim to sell FOUR players

Leicester are hoping to get rid of four players in the approaching transfer window.

The club’s budget is tight and by selling they hope to raise funds.

Caglar Soyuncu has featured just once this season and amid interest from Atletico Madrid, he could be sold.

Ayoze Perez and Dennis Praet could also depart alongside Jannik Vestegaard.

Leicester have become increasingly concerned about breaking financial fair play rules in recent years after spending heavily in previous windows.

This comes despite pocketing £70million from Chelsea for Wesley Fofana.

The club are hoping to sign players in January after an uneventful summer with a centre-back, left-back and right-sided winger wanted.
