Plenty of Everton fans have been reacting to the news that Carlo Ancelotti will be given funds to strengthen the Merseysiders’ squad in the upcoming summer transfer window, as per The Guardian.
The report claimed that the Italian boss thinks that the squad can be upgraded ‘without a lot of changes’ and added that he has ‘assurances from the board’.
Can Everton finish in the Premier League top six next campaign?
Several members of the Goodison Park faithful were having their say on Twitter as to who to possibly buy and sell, with one Everton supporter suggesting that they bring Idrissa Gueye back from Paris Saint Germain, after admitting that “Gueye was a big loss”.
Perhaps the Toffees should consider making a bid for the central midfielder based off of his statistics in the 2019/20 season compared to some of the other midfielders currently at the Blues. Gueye averaged more tackles, interceptions and key passes in Ligue 1 than Fabian Delph, Tom Davies and Andre Gomes in the Premier League so far in this campaign, according to Whoscored.
Another fan suggested that Ancelotti should look to sell Yerry Mina as the central defender has averaged fewer interceptions and clearances than both Mason Holgate and Michael Keane so far in the 2019/20 English top flight (via the website).

I hope he increases his transfer kitty by offloading the players who continually underperform. The likes of Bernard, Walcott, Sandro, Bolasie, Davies, Sigurdsson, Iwobi, Delph & Tosun (when fit) should all be made available. Plus the players who have been out on loan.

Pacy attacking midfielders needed. No more holding crabs like Gomes.
