Everton refuse to give up on Sporting Lisbon's Moutinho

Everton refuse to give up on landing Sporting Lisbon midfielder Joao Moutinho.

The Liverpool Echo says Everton are still trying to negotiate with Sporting Lisbon for Moutinho and remain hopeful of breaking their transfer record for the Portuguese midfielder.

Closing that deal would leave Dave Moyes less scope to spend on the further five or six additions he admits he needs to get his squad numbers up to a competitive level.
