The Everton fans inside the Transfer Tavern are excited for the new campaign to kick off under Marco Silva, a manager they’ve desired for almost a year now.
After finally getting Silva, they now need to financially back him during the transfer window so he can improve their squad to the best of his ability. Everton, despite finishing comfortably in the top 10 had a very unpredictable season and even at one point flirted with the relegation zone. Marco Silva is an attacking coach that’s come into propel their league position and his first mission, our punters believe, should be to sign Jannik Vestergaard, a centre-back who is valued at £12.6 million on Transfermarkt.
Everton too often last season couldn’t rely on their defenders to be strong enough to put a stop to the flurry of goals they were conceding. Much was thought of Michael Keane when he was brought into the club but after a disappointing season, it seems he isn’t the finished article yet. Ashley Williams and Phil Jagielka struggled big time for form and that’s why the signing of an experienced Bundesliga defender is so vital this summer.
The 25-year-old last season for Borussia Monchengladbach made 32 league appearances, in which he scored 3 goals for his team and helped keep 7 clean sheets on their way to a 9th place finish. Everton have a bright future and Vestergaard would be a good way to start their summer spending in order to strengthen the team.
The Danish international has already played in more than 180 Bundesliga games and his stability at the back would help Everton worry about scoring goals, rather than constantly conceding them.
