Everton fans in the Transfer Tavern loved watching England progress to the quarter-final of the FIFA World Cup against Colombia.
Toffees goalkeeper, Jordan Pickford, was the hero after making a world-class save in stoppage time to keep England in front. The former Sunderland keeper then made an excellent save in the penalty shoot-out to send the Three Lions into the last eight. Our punters were delighted to watch their man do the business.
Despite England’s World Cup success, Everton are yet to make a signing this summer. Wayne Rooney and Ramiro Funes Mori have both left the club, but there have been no replacements. Left-back will be a priority for Marco Silva with Leighton Baines approaching the end of his career.
One man Silva could target is Bayer Leverkusen full-back – Wendell. Valued at £16.2m by Transfermarkt, the 24-year-old has established himself as one of the best defenders in the division in recent years. Last season, he made 30 appearances in all competitions, scoring three goals and registering three assists.
The Brazilian is lightning quick and is a good crosser of the ball making him the perfect replacement for Baines. He is yet to win a full cap for Brazil and may need to move to a better league to put himself on the map. Moving to Goodison Park could be perfect.
