Everton making waves
12:30: There’s a couple of things happening at Everton today.
The Toffees have made a season-long loan enquiry for Arsenal outcast Lucas Perez.
Sky Sports claim Arsenal don’t want to sell to a rival club, while Perez himself would prefer to return to Spain with Deportivo de La Coruna.
Meanwhile the Daily Mail claim Nikola Vlasic is having medical at Finch Farm right now ahead of £8million move from Hajduk Split.
Parlour offers thoughts on AOC move
12:20: Ray Parlour has given his opinion of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s move to Liverpool.
The Arsenal legend thinks Oxlade-Chamberlain’s dad was a big influence on the move, as was the promise of a central midfield role.
He said: “He only just made his mind up, simple. He thinks he needs to further his career. His dad has probably been a big influence as well. He was a football player himself and said ‘look son this is on the table’.
“He had the opportunity to go to Chelsea, where he would have been a wing back. He’d have competition with Victor Moses at right wing-back.
“Maybe he’s met the representatives and then the people at Liverpool and told you’re going to be central midfield. Four at the back, thee in midfield and you’ll be in that three. Maybe that’s the reason he’s chosen Liverpool over Chelsea.”

Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp could yet make further signings before tonight’s transfer deadline, as they continue to hold talks with Monaco in an attempt to secure a £75m deal for French forward Lemar.
They have not given up hope either of signing Van Dijk, though they acknowledge that it would take a significant shift in Southampton’s stance for the £70m-valued centre-back to move to Anfield.
Oxlade-Chamberlain: I’m delighted to have signed
12:10: In a message to Reds fans after sealing the move, Oxlade-Chamberlain said: “I’m currently away with England, so I’m at St George’s Park.
“Firstly, I’m delighted to have signed for Liverpool and a big thank-you to everyone here at the FA that has made this…
