SIX ‘out-of-the-box’ signings for Everton

Apart from battling for the domestic league and trophies next season, Everton will also be involved the Europa League as well. This will mean they need a bigger squad in order to maintain everyone’s fitness with their increase of games should they advance into the deeper rounds.

Having already made two signings with the acquisition of Romelu Lukaku and Muhamed Besic, Roberto Martinez may still need to bolster his squad with a few more instant impact signings if he is to bring some success to the club.

With this in mind, here are SIX players who can skip the adaptation stage and make give the manager some immediate results…





Name: Nani
Age: 27
Position: Winger (Right, Left)
Nationality: Portugal
Club: Manchester United
Price: £10 – £15 million

Nani’s future at Manchester United is still uncertain after falling down the pecking order in recent years. He is a player that can change the complete pace of the game at times and may disappear completely in some. A move to Everton could give him a second chance of proving himself in the English Premier League.

With only 11 league appearances last season, he is surely in search for some regular first team football. Despite that, he played all three of Portugal’s World Cup games, netting one in the process as many can see that his quality is still there if he is given the opportunity.

Javier Hernandez


Name: Javier Hernandez
Age: 26
Position: Striker
Nationality: Mexico
Club: Manchester United
Price: £13 – £16 million

With only six starts and 18 substitute appearances the previous season, Javier Hernandez has been unhappy out his lack of first team football throughout the previous season. Despite this, he still managed four goals and three assist as he is now out to prove his worth to Louis van Gaal.

Roberto Martinez is said to be interest in bringing the Mexican over and could use the allure of Europa League football to do so. Hernandez has always been seen as a great goal scorer and a switch to Everton wouldn’t change that.

Memphis Depay


Name: Memphis Depay
Age: 20
Position: Left Wing
Nationality: Netherlands
Club: PSV Eindhoven
Price: £10 – £15 million

Memphis Depay could be a real possibility if Tottenham Hotspur are looking to add some extra pace down the flanks. His World Cup performance has caught the eye of many other clubs as well with Louis van Gaal also previously being linked to bring the Dutch star to Old Trafford.

Almost still quite young, he has already proven himself on the world stage and could find a switch to the English Premier League to be a good career move. Despite the physicality of the English came, any club will be boosted by his quickness and creativity down the left wing.

Ron Vlaar

Ron Vlaar

Name: Ron Vlaar
Age: 29
Position: Centre-back
Nationality: Netherlands
Club: Aston Villa
Price: £5 – £8 million

Ron Vlaar made himself a top defensive target with his very impressive displays at the World Cup for the Netherlands. With squad depth something Roberto Martinez will need to think about when he leads his team into the Europa League, the addition of the Dutch centre-back can sure up his squad’s defence.

Having joined Aston Villa back in 2012, he will be ready for the new campaign without needing to cope with any major adaptations due to the fact that he will have already faced many of his opponents over the years. Martinez may need to hurry on an offer because it is believed that Louis van Gaal wants him at Manchester United as well.

James Milner

James Milner

Name: James Milner
Age: 28
Position: Right Midfield
Nationality: England
Club: Manchester City
Price: £10 – £15 million

James Milner is seen as a tireless midfielder who always gives his all for his club and could become a great asset, much like how Gareth Barry made the switch from Manchester City. Every time he was given a chance to prove himself, he manages to impress everyone.

With only 12 starts and 19 substitute appearances, he managed to score one goal and provide another three. Roberto Martinez will need the likes of the England star in order to add a greater sense of depth into his side as they prepare for next season. The Toffees should be able to offer him a starting berth as everyone will still have another chance to impress their boss.

Loic Remy

Loic Remy

Name: Loic Remy
Age: 27
Position: Striker
Nationality: France
Club: Queens Park Rangers
Price: £13 – £18 million

Loic Remy saw his move to Liverpool get cancelled and is now back at Queens Park Rangers despite stating his intentions of playing in Europe. Everton could offer him exactly that because they could also be in search of another top striker despite recently signing Romelu Lukaku.

He managed to net 14 goals in 24 starts for Newcastle United last season while on loan, meaning he has already proven himself in the English league. If he joins Everton, it would mean that he could be given the chance to play as their starting forward, both domestically as well as in the Europa League.
