The Portuguese press once again has updates on Everton’s chase for the Benfica winger Andre Carrillo today.

It’s said that the most likely deal would be a loan with an option to buy, and Everton will go for that just like Watford did to get the player last season.

Reports from this week have claimed that the Eagles would demand at least €15m for his sale, which is the amount of the buying option Watford had over him.
