Everton are looking to offload three senior players this transfer window as they refurbish their first team set up.
According to The Athletic’s Adam Leventhal (relayed via @EvertonNewsFeed), the Toffees could be ready to cash in on Alex Iwobi, Theo Walcott and Yannick Bolasie.
Is James Rodriguez to Everton one of the best signings of the transfer window?
With new recruits James Rodriguez, Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure, there’s a lot of competition to make it into the lineup. Bolasie especially could be overdue his departure, given he hasn’t made an appearance for Everton since 2018 (via Transfermarkt).
In fact, the forward has spent the last two seasons on loan after being deemed surplus to requirements.
Blues fans seem to be in agreement with the trio being offloaded and have made their feelings known in the comments to the update.
One supporter has said it’s ‘about time’ these players were moved on, whilst another has urged the club to ‘make it happen’.

Mr Brands and Mr Ancelotti seeing that the kids from the 23’s are as good if not better than them. Think we’ve come to the end of the big money for mediocre players.. bought by below average managers.

No one will take them on the wages they are on. Would have to be loans subsidised by EFC and are they then not better as squad players?

Somebody on the board should get sacked for allowing the club to sign Iwobi.

Get rid of iwobi and Walcott. So inconsistent. Offer very little
