With the transfer window now closed till January it is time to look at which Premier League club has done the best business. With little money in the bank, David Moyes has done it yet again in the transfer window by signing four players that will help Everton push for European qualification place.
Despite the loss of Tim Cahill to New York Red Bulls and Jack Rodwell to Manchester City, Everton can be more than happy with their dealings in the transfer window. With Cahill approaching the latter years of his career and Rodwell only making 17 appearances in all competitions last season, Everton fans can not be to disheartened with the loss of both players.
Everton fans though can be excited with the new arrivals at Goodison Park. Having brought in Steven Naismith on a free from Rangers and Kevin Mirallas from Olympiakos for a reported fee of £6million, Moyes has added plenty of fire power to a front line which already includes a prolific Nikica Jelavic. These signings will soften the blow for the loss of Tim Cahill who was consistent performer for Everton for numerous years and when Mirallas rejects Arsenal, Everton must know that they have a talented player.
In addition to Naismith and Mirallas Everton have bought a player they know well in Steven Pienaar. A creative midfielder who can make things happen in the centre midfield, freeing up Fellaini to play just behind the striker. Pienaar is a quality player who did not have the best of times at Tottenham but under Moyes he can perform once again to his best ability, and at a price of only £4.5million he is already proving his worth having already scored for his new club.
The final signing was Costa Rican left-back Bryan Oviedo. A promising left-back who attracted interest from Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers, Ovideo is a full international who will provide cover for Leighton Baines and add strength in depth to an Everton side who have not had that luxury before in previous seasons.
With this in mind and taking into consideration the financial troubles Everton are in David Moyes has been able to improve what is an already good squad. Because of this, expect Everton to be up there in the European qualification places at the end of the season and to once again be causing trouble to the teams aiming for the title.
