Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti has been tipped to make big changes in midfield this summer by Michael Brown.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the ex-Tottenham and Man City midfielder delivered his verdict as the Toffees eye up a second bid for Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucouré.
Everton are willing to make the Frenchman one of the club’s highest earners and are set to offer him a £120,000-a-week deal, as revealed by Football Insider.
Doucouré would join Tom Davies, Fabian Delph, Andre Gomes, Gylfi Sigurdsson and the injured Jean-Phillipe Gbamin as Ancelotti’s midfield options.
Steve Bruce has told Newcastle chiefs to sign Davies who would demand a fee of £12m as he attempts to build a British core to his squad, according to the Mail.
