Danny Mills has dropped a claim on how he thinks Everton will approach the rest of this month’s transfer window.
Marcel Brands said in a meeting of the Goodison Park faithful’s shareholders earlier in the month that the Merseyside club would focus on offloading fringe players in January ahead of making any new signings to the team.
Will Everton win a trophy this season?
Speaking to Football Insider, Mills thinks that Carlo Ancelotti’s side will be cautious for the rest of the transfer window and that any new additions this month to improve upon the squad would be expensive:
“I think Everton will be very cautious.
“Bearing in mind, they’ve brought in a lot of players in the last few windows even before Marcel Brands came in and it hasn’t always worked out.
“They brought in quite a few in the last window, four or five.
“Now they’re probably thinking ‘Right OK, we’re starting to get settled now, we’re starting to get used to the way we’re playing and we’ve got players coming back from injury. We’re understanding the process.’
“Who are they going to sign? You only sign players that are better than what you’ve got.
“I would suggest, at the moment, this is going to be very, very expensive.”
Everton should look to improve the squad
If any players that can improve the squad become available from now until the end of the window, the Toffees should certainly at least consider making a move for them.
Pushing to qualify for European competition for the 2021/22 term and still in with a chance of winning the FA Cup, it would not hurt the Blues to go out and sign one or two players in order to improve the team and bolster the current squad.
That said, there may not be many players available to their liking in January, and so perhaps the summer transfer window is what they should focus on if they are planning to spend any big money on new players.
