It's hard to knock anything Everton have done this season despite a brief wobble given they currently sit second in the Premier League after Christmas.
Under Carlo Ancelotti, the Toffees look well-placed to build an exciting project at Goodison Park.
However, one high earner could depart despite the recent success.
According to Gazetta dello Sport (via Sport Witness), Roma could make a move to sign Bernard in an attempt to strengthen their frontline should they manage to sell Carlos Perez.
With Richarlison and James Rodriguez largely operating either side of Dominic Calvert-Lewin in a 4-3-3 system and Alex Iwobi capable of deputising, his chances of commanding much of a first-team berth do look reasonably remote at the moment.

Back in October, the player's agent revealed he'd asked Everton if the 28-year-old could leave Goodison Park but was apparently rejected.
However, he did tell LaRoma24 (via Football Italia) that he believed a deal could be done for around €7m (roughly £6.3m) ahead of the January window, which would represent reasonably good business for Everton.
Obviously, he's on a hefty pay packet but he was signed for free and isn't getting near the first-team, so making that kind of money on him as he heads for the final year of his contract should be a tempting prospect.
In November, The Athletic spoke of the need to get players off the wage bill before strengthening further. With that in mind, moving him on soon could be a good idea.News Now - Sport News
