Everton’s campaign this season has been pretty much what many would have expected but the Toffees face a stern test to qualify for European football next term, whilst their FA Cup exit at the weekend gave them little to play for.
January is set to be a busy month for Ronald Koeman as he looks to improve his squad at Goodison Park, with owner Farhad Moshiri arriving to hopefully release funds, though the Toffees need to be wary of any January exits they agree too.
With a squad full of capable players, bigger clubs may launch a swoop for some of the better-ranked players within Everton’s set up, whilst approving exits prematurely for some fringe players could be a decision that comes back to haunt the club.
As much optimism as Koeman’s arrival on Merseyside originally brought with it, it’s a nervous time for the Toffees propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern.
There are plenty of rumours surrounding Everton currently flooding the gossip pages, including talk of exits, but they should definitely not accept a departure for these two first-team players.
