Everton set to welcome ‘three or four’ players to Goodison Park

Everton Everton fans in the Football Transfer could be in for a busy week after manager Roberto Martinez took to the airwaves to give fans an update.

According to talkSPORT, Everton are expected to finalise the transfers of ‘three of four’ players in the next few days.

The Toffees’ only signing so far this summer has been midfielder Gareth Barry who joined on a free transfer after his contract with Manchester City came to an end.

But Martinez assured supporters a host of signings are imminent.

The Spaniard said: “The main priority was to have continuity in what we did last season. We have had a few players signing extensions and we got Gareth Barry becoming a permanent signing, which was huge for us.

“In the next couple of days we will have a few players coming in because it was important for me to assess the youngsters.

“The youngsters have done terrific and are showing the good work we are doing in the academy at Finch Farm, but there are areas that need to be strengthened and over the next few days we are going to get the three, four players we need just to finalise the squad facing the huge demands with European football ahead.”

It still remains to be seen whether Martinez has managed to lure Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku to the club but he has made no secret of his admiration for the Chelsea forward.

Elsewhere, the Merseyside club are believed to be closing in on the signing of Anderlecht’s young talent David Henen and he could be one of the three or four Martinez is alluding to.
