According to The Mail Online, Everton are hoping to unload three players and raise £60m in the process this January.
The three men expected to leave Goodison Park are midfielders Morgan Schneiderlin and James McCarthy, as well as striker Cenk Tosun.
Tosun arrived last January for £27m from Beşiktaş, but has been hugely underwhelming. He was brought in to solve the striker predicament at the club, but has actually caused more troubles, as The Toffees have been seriously lacking in that area.
However, by raising the funds from these three players, Everton could have a fair amount of money to spend this January. This opens up the door of high-profile signings to address their problems.
The Toffees have been linked with a number of strikers this January, but questions remain as to which will make the grade in the Premier League, or, more importantly, who would be an instant success. By freeing up a potential £60m, the club could recruit a recognised name at Goodison Park.
Richarlison was bought in the summer for £50m, and there is no denying that he has been a success for the club. In addition, Everton’s next most expensive player was Gylfi Sigurðsson, who, alongside the Brazilian, has probably been the best player at the club this season.
Marco Silva will want instant success after January if he wants this season to be a success. The club are currently in limbo, and desperately need a striker, and chairman Kenwright should try and use every penny from these players’ exits.
