Merseyside club Everton are back in the hunt for Three Lions of England defender Chris Smalling ahead of the upcoming transfer window in the New Year.
Smalling currently plays his club football for Premier League heavyweights Manchester United.
According to the publication from popular English media outlet The Sun, Everton are interested in signing the 28-year-old centre back on a free transfer at the end of this campaign.
Chris Smalling has less than a year on his current deal with the Red Devils meaning that the Englishman would become a free agent next summer.
Manchester United, however, have the option to extend his Red Devils contract by an additional year until the end of the 2019/20 season.
The aforementioned report claimed that Everton would be looking to sign him on a free transfer at the end of this season or in January if Manchester United decide to give him an additional year.
The Toffees already have long-term centre-back options like Michael Keane and summer signing Yerry Mina but there are doubts over the duo of Kurt Zouma and Phil Jagielka.
Zouma is likely to go back to parent club Chelsea at the end of his season-long loan deal, while Jagielka is almost certain to leave at the end of the season.
EPL: How Chelsea Players Ignored Lampard’s Halftime Warning In Leicester City Draw
Chelsea skipper Cesar Azpilicueta has narrated how they ignored the warning from manager Frank Lampard during the halftime of their Premier League clash with Leicester City.
Azpilicueta told reporters about the halftime warning ignored by the Chelsea players shortly after the game.
According to him, Frank Lampard told the players that they needed a second goal to secure the points in the home game against the Foxes.
Chelsea had a one-nil lead at halftime courtesy young English midfielder Mason Mount after the former Derby County loanee dispossessed Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi to fire the ball past Foxes goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.
It was a magical moment for Mason Mount who scored on his home debut for his boyhood club.
Leicester City equalized in the second half through a bullet header from the aforementioned Ndidi who atoned for his error in the first half.
The header from Super Eagles star Ndidi was enough to earn Leicester City a point from the game.
Cesar Azpilicueta and Chelsea are still waiting for their first win of the season after three games.
Their next game is the league visit to newly promoted outfit Norwich City who won their first game of the season via the 3-1 win over Newcastle United at the weekend.
Lampard Singles Out One Player After Leicester City Draw
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard singled out one player for praise after his team could only manage a draw against Leicester City.
Lampard led Chelsea to a 1-1 draw with Leicester City at home in the Premier League game played on Sunday evening.
After the game, Frank Lampard was full of praise for young Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount for his performance against the Foxes.
The Chelsea legend pointed out his quality while he was fielding questions from reporters at his post-match press conference.
Mason Mount has been in very good form for Chelsea since he returned to the club from his loan spell at English Championship club Derby County.
The 20-year-old midfielder played at Derby County for Frank Lampard last season as the Rams got to the Championship playoff final before being beaten 2-1 by Aston Villa who are in the Premier League as a result of that win.
Mason Mount returned to Chelsea from the Derby County loan spell and was one of the best players for the Blues during preseason.
He has continued that form into the new season after the midfielder robbed Leicester City star Wilfried Ndidi to give Chelsea a first-half lead.
Ndidi atoned for his error with a bullet header in the second half thereby earning a 1-1 draw for the Foxes.
EPL: Solskjaer Reveals Best Finisher In His Team
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed the best finisher in his squad according to ESPN.
Solskjaer talked about the best finisher in his team during his pre-match press conference ahead of the Premier League clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers.
According to the Norwegian tactician, young striker Mason Greenwood is the best finisher in his squad at the moment.
Solskjaer considers the young Mason Greenwood as the best finisher in his squad ahead of the likes of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.
The Manchester United manager also said that Martial and Rashford need to score ‘easy’ goals more for the Red Devils.
Mason Greenwood is expected to be in the Manchester United squad for the Wolves game.
The 17-year-old is expected to stay on the bench for the likes of Rashford and Martial ahead of the Wolves game.
Wolverhampton Wanderers have been the bogey team for Manchester United in the last year.
As a newly promoted team last season, Wolves were unbeaten against Manchester United in three meetings.
Manchester United have a good chance to take top spot on the Premier League table if they can record their first win against Europa League campaigners Wolves at the fourth time of asking.
Ashley Cole Says This Player Could Be World-class After Match With Leicester
Former Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole is certain that young midfielder Mason Mount has the right qualities to become a world-class player.
Ashley Cole spoke about Mason Mount while he was doing his punditry job on Sky Sports as he was impressed with young Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount and his outing against Leicester City on Sunday evening.
The young English player has started the season well despite the struggles recorded by Chelsea under Frank Lampard this season.
Mason Mount was one of the few Chelsea players that finished the Manchester United game with a little credit.
The 20-year-old was one of the best Chelsea players during the game which ended in a 4-0 win at Old Trafford.
Mason Mount went on to make a substitute appearance in the UEFA Super Cup loss to Liverpool last week Wednesday.
Chelsea lost 5-4 on penalties after the two Premier League giants played out a 1-1 draw at the end of ninety minutes and extra time.
Mason Mount then played a starring role for Chelsea in the 1-1 draw at home to Leicester City.
Chelsea took the lead through Mason Mount in the first half before Wilfried Ndidi earned a share of the spoils for Leicester City with a second half header.
