Everton to smash wage structure to push club forwards

Along with the appointment for Ronald Koeman, Everton are to completely dismantle their current wage structure as they aim to push on for a Champions League finish next season, according to the Liverpool Echo.

Everton have previously struggled to compete with many of the Premier League’s biggest club due to their financial restrictions but, with new owners in place, reports suggest that this could all change with Ronald Koeman arriving as the replacement for Roberto Martinez.

The new billionaire investor in the club, Farhad Moshiri, wants to take the club to the next level, rather than continuing to tread water in the tedium of the Premier League mid-table.

Koeman has reportedly been told that he can expect to have a transfer war chest of around £100 million and it sounds as though the club’s ruling figures will back this up with a hefty raise in the wages that he can offer.
