The 15 Players Everton Simply Must Target This Summer
The 2018/2019 season may have drawn to a close, but the summer transfer window is well and truly underway as clubs around the world size up who they would like to sell and who they would like to buy.
Even Premier League teams who enjoyed a mostly-successful 2018/2019 season like Marco Silva’s Everton are completing that task as we speak. And after achieving one of their aims of finishing in the top-half by clinching eighth-place, there are still at least 15 players the Toffees should be targeting this summer to close the gap on the top six.

While it will heavily depend on the immediate futures of Idrissa Gana Gueye and FC Barcelona loanee Andre Gomes, Everton could be left with just one outright central defensive or holding midfielder for next season: perennial fringe star Morgan Schneiderlin.
That is why recruitment just in front of the defence is needed at Goodison Park this summer and LOSC Lille’s Thiago Mendes would be a great acquisition to start with. The 27-year-old Brazilian’s consistency in Ligue 1 this season has seen him attract attention from some of Europe’s top clubs.
