Everton: Pundit claims Toffees could be in danger if players are sold in January

Everton: Pundit claims Toffees could be in danger if players are sold in January - Everton News

Everton will be in ‘real trouble’ if they sell players in the upcoming January transfer window, according to BBC pundit Tam McManus. 

The Lowdown: Everton’s season so far

With 15 Premier League games played, the Toffees find themselves in 17th place in the league table with just 14 points on the board.

Behind the scenes, figures such as Michael Keane and Jordan Pickford have been linked with moves away from Goodison Park next month.

Now that domestic football is set to resume and the winter transfer window is ready to open for business in the coming weeks, one pundit has shared his concerns for Everton ahead of January.

The Latest: McManus predicts Toffees trouble

Speaking to Football Insider about the recent exit rumours, McManus had this to say about potential outgoings at Everton in January and what shape the club could be in as a result:

“Well, it looks like Keane is going to leave one way or another. Then you have Pickford’s future. You worry about how Everton will line up after January if those deals happen.

“They are in real trouble down there at the bottom, they just aren’t scoring goals and that will be the reason they could go down.


“Do they have the money to invest in January? There is always talk about the money at Everton and whether they actually have any to spend.

“They always seem to so they could go again in January, reinvest after selling. But if you lose two big players like that then it is very hard to replace them in a January window.

“With the new stadium on the way you have to worry for them if those transfers happen.”

The Verdict: A crucial time for Everton

Given how disappointing Everton have been this season and the unfortunate position they find themselves in heading into the second half of the season, the January window will be a pivotal time for the Toffees.

Having recently terminated Salomon Rondon’s contract in addition to the fact that only Wolves (8) have scored fewer goals than Everton this season, bringing in at least one new attacking figure should be a top priority for the club.

In terms of seeing individuals leave the club, the Toffees should only consider letting players go that have not or are not likely to be featuring in the team regularly, such as Keane.
