Everton want to sign James Carragher — son of Liverpool legend Jamie — and hope to conclude a deal for him this summer.

The 18-year-old central defender has made excellent progress at Wigan, whom he joined in 2017 after a spell at Liverpool’s Academy. He is currently on a scholarship but those terms expire at the end of the season.

Carlo Ancelotti, meanwhile, has stressed he did not turn down the chance to join Roma. There had been speculation that Everton’s manager — who played for Roma — was a target for the Serie A side but they have since appointed Jose Mourinho.

‘It’s not true,’ said Ancelotti. ‘They know I have a contract and I am not available. They made a good choice. I received a lot of offers in the past but never Roma.’
