When a new manager enters the fold, personnel within the team is expected to change.
Marco Silva has taken time getting his squad together at Everton, but he has finally made some moves by bringing in attacker Richarlison and left-back Lucas Digne.
It has been widely suggested that the Merseyside outfit could also do with a new centre-back and perhaps a defensive midfielder.
The Liverpool Echo stated as much, and in the piece they claimed that Muhamed Besic could be heading towards the exit gates.
The Bosnian, who is valued at £4.5m by Transfermarkt, has struggled for game time over the last few seasons, but has impressed during pre-season.

Besic can play as a centre-back or right-back, but his main position is in defensive midfield.
Judging by these latest reports it seems that Silva is not entirely convinced by the 25-year-old’s ability, and could dip into the market for a new face.
The reaction from Everton fans on Reddit has been mixed.
