It’s that time of the year again, the transfer window is open and the rumour mill is in full flow, but who should Everton sign this summer?
Last season was a major disappointment for Everton fans, as the summer transfer window that was supposed to push them towards the top six only pushed two managers out the door.
Sam Allardyce replaced Ronald Koeman and did exactly what he was asked to do by keeping the Toffees up, but at the expense of his relationship with the fans.
Big Sam has of course now left the club, but the lack of a new manager appointment isn’t stopping the constant flow of transfer rumours.
Marcel Brands joined the Toffees last week, which could hopefully mean a new dawn for the club, with the Dutch transfer wizard looking to fix the mistakes of last summer.
Brands has an excellent reputation for spotting talent on the cheap, so with a larger budget than his previous clubs he could work wonders, but who should the Toffees actually target this summer?
Links to Stoke’s Xherdan Shaqiri and Watford’s Richarlison seem to suggest the Toffees are after a new winger, perhaps no surprise given the form of Yannick Bolasie. Brands would be much better served looking to his former club though, with the electric Hirving Lozano, who has 19 PSV goals this season, a far superior player to the other linked wingers.
One would have to think the new manager will want a new central midfielder as well, with Sporting CP’s William Carvalho one of the names linked with a move to Goodison.
So, Everton fans, who do you want to sign this summer? Let us know by voting in the poll below…
