Benfica invite Everton to bid again for Fernandes

Everton have been given encouragement to bid again for Benfica midfielder Manuel Fernandes.

The Sun says Benfica demanded £12m for the Portuguese Under-21 star - who was an instant hero in an eight-game spell at the end of last season.

But they are now willing to drop the asking price to £8m and Everton are confident Fernandes, 21, will be keen to return.
