However, Silva has insisted Ademola Lookman will not be leaving despite interest from RB Leipzig, where he enjoyed a successful loan spell last season. “He is our player and he stays,” the Everton manager said.

I think that's quite definitive and consistent with the message that Brands/Silva have put across all summer. If he is sulking a bit, they'll back themselves to get past the window closing, involve the lad and show him that this club can be a good place for him.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

Does anyone else read that as him saying aside from Holgate who's injured we haven't got a decent CB?  Its true like, but for him to say it in an interview is surprising.

I read it as saying we only have three central defenders and one of them is injured.

He'll be sold by Wednesday then.

I have never been so uninterested in a player as Lookman. No bithered one way or the other.

He seems to be a cancer within the club. Can’t be good having him around just like the Mirallas scenario, sell on deadline day when some desperate club will pay top dollar for him.

How can you possibly know that? Everything on this thread is pure conjecture.

Describing him as possibly a 'cancer' is way over the top. Pretty horrible way of describing a young lad who has got a few misgivings (in my opinion, understandably) about the club.

Cancer is a bit extreme!

The lad hasn't done anything overtly unprofessional. His behaviour certainly doesn't warrant being called a cancer.

If he's being called a cancer in person or on social media by other blues then wanting to move away is totally understandable.

If he wants to leave then he's basically gonna have to submit a transfer request
