Everton fans are in buoyant mood after the Toffees announced their sixth signing of the window, Wayne Rooney, has returned to the club.
The local boy, who rose through the Everton academy before bursting on the scene with a wonder goal against Arsenal has returned 13 years after leaving for Manchester United.
Rooney has signed a two-year deal with Ronald Koeman’s side as they aim to breach the top six this season.
Everton’s defensive record massively improved last season after a dismal 2015/16 campaign. Despite selling John Stones to Manchester City, Koeman’s side conceded 44 times in the Premier League, 13 less than the previous season.
The additions of Jordan Pickford and Michael Keane are likely to make for a sturdier backline, but who else should the Toffees buy to ensure for a successful season.
To add strength in depth to his side, we think Koeman should consider moving for 1 of these 3 defenders this month…
