Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti has responded to transfer speculation linking the club with a move for Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori, admitting that signing a centre-back before the end of the window has become a priority.

"I am not talking about players that are not here," was his response when asked about Tomori.
