Everton have finally reached their capabilities under Marco Silva and those fans are loving it. Seventh place looks to again be a real possibility and optimism has quickly restored itself around Goodison Park. Thank the high heavens for that, right?
With a string of fine results, Everton have re-established themselves as European contenders, something that will please Marco Silva after a troubling start to his tenure. Indeed, you Everton fans can safely admit that they did have concerns about the Portuguese boss but finally having turned things around, Silva must continue to be entrusted by all.
Obviously, this upcoming transfer window is yet again another opportunity for Everton to try and strengthen their side but their first bit of business may be slightly easier than some. Despite a number of teams now pledging their interest, Everton’s first job this summer is to sign Andre Gomes on a permanent deal, after he’s produced a number of show-stopping performances this season.
Gomes, (who is valued at £25.2 million on Transfermarkt) has shown exactly why Barcelona invested so heavily in him, with so many classy performances in the heart of midfield.
At times, the 25-year-old looks miles ahead of his opponents as he effortlessly strolls around the pitch like it’s his own.
That kind of player is extremely hard to find and Everton must do everything to try and keep hold of him – amid reported interest over the course of the campaign – now they’ve seen how good their midfield could be.
Marco Silva – like you supporters reading this – is surely very keen on making his stay permanent and although Barcelona can now drive up the price because of his performances, Everton must consider who would prove to be better value for money.
Now in his prime years, enjoying some terrific football and looking at home in the blue of Everton, it definitely makes sense that he remains at Goodison Park, right?
