Everton fans in the Transfer Tavern are impressed with the progress they’ve made this season under Ronald Koeman and they’re expecting big things this summer.
The Toffees face a stern test in the close-season as speculation on the future’s of key-duo Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley remains in doubt, with both aces likely to start next season away from Goodison Park- potentially with Premier League rivals.
Club owner Farhad Moshiri is ready to invest significantly during the transfer window but the Toffees may still struggle to compete with top sides financially- which is why one deal that’s already been completed is significant.
The Daily Mail states the Toffees have made a position in the backroom staff for Forest Green performance analyst Charlie Reeves, who earned plaudits this season for his in depth statistical analysis of the game.
Reeves’ ground-breaking approach was nothing like the National League has ever seen before and, following the club’s promotion to League Two, he’ll now be moving to the Premier League and playing a crucial part in Koeman’s first-team set-up.
Everton fans, what sort of impact do you expect from Reeves? Let us know in the comments below!
