Having already parted with over £50 million to sign Davy Klaassen and Jordan Pickford, it seems that Ronald Koeman’s big summer spending at Everton is showing no signs of slowing down.
The Dutchman has taken charge of an ambitious project at the Toffees after leaving Southampton last year, and his bold start to the summer window has our Evertonian patrons here at the Transfer Tavern in a state of wonder.
We love pulling pints for Everton fans here at the Tavern, and Koeman’s electric start to the summer has even stifled the ribbing of Liverpool fans as they ponder who could be the latest face at Goodison Park.
On the flip side, fans are disappointed by news that Gerard Deulofeu looks set to leave the club after 2 years of Merseyside living – as per The Liverpool Echo.
The former Barcelona man spent time on loan at Milan last season, but fans were hoping he would return to light up the Premier League once again.
With Barca interested in bringing their former youngster back to the Camp Nou, fans are resigned to losing him.
Our landlord empathised with their loss, and suggested that they could find a ready made replacement in Ajax’s Hakim Ziyech.
Having already raided the Dutch giants for Klassen, the Toffees should make an approach for Ziyech, who has arguably been the most consistent player in the league in the last few years.
37 goals and countless assists in the last three years for Ajax and FC Twente has made the player one of the most devastating players in the division, and Koeman should consider a swoop for the Dutchman of Moroccan descent.
