Everton have improved significantly under the guidance of Ronald Koeman and the fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping for a busy summer ahead of their return to European football next year.
The Toffees’ seventh-placed finish in the Premier League means their campaign will start in early July as they seek passage through to the group stages of the Europa League, which means the club will have to show significant depth to excel next year.
Amidst speculation regarding the future of key-players like Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley, Everton are under intense pressure to bolster their squad this summer but reports suggest a significant move has been made.
Swansea City’s Gylfi Sigurdsson is at the top of Everton’s wish-list and the Toffees have reportedly agreed a fee for the Icelandic ace, despite the Euro 2016 star stating recently he’s not looking to leave the Welsh side.
Sigurdsson’s performances this season show he should be playing for a club higher up in the standings and our landlord expects him to move to Goodison Park in the coming months – which fans seem to be very happy with…..
Tough you didn't want to sell Williams either, hand him over!

If we're to get amongst the big boys then we have to start paying the money. £120K or so a week is the norm now for top players….
