News from the Daily Star has distracted their attention away from the last game of the day with the paper reporting that manager Roberto Martinez has outlined a move for exciting Valencia winger Andres Guardado in January.

The Goodison Park club oversaw a hectic transfer window as the former Wigan Athletic manager began to shape David Moyes’ squad into his ahead of the 2013/14 season.

Martinez secured the late signatures of James McCarthy,Romelu Lukaku and Gareth Barry towards the end of the window, and now he could be ready to move for the 27-year-old Mexican international.

According to reports from Spain, Guardado, who has also been targeted by Champions League outfit Porto, is on Martinez’ wishlist to help build on his impressive start to the season.

Martinez’s side remain the last side in the top flight to be beaten but the Spanish coach admits their is a long way to go.

He said: “It is a fantastic label to have but it is something we will have to work really hard to extend.

“It is a beautiful label to have but in September you don’t win anything. What we need to do is work harder because it is only beautiful if you can keep it until May because otherwise one day it will become a negative.”
