The resident Toffees faithful in the Transfer Tavern have been pleased by their club’s activity in the transfer market so far this month, but they are hoping that Sam Allardyce has one final move to make before the deadline passes tonight. 

Everton have been busy in the January window so far this month as they have welcome both Theo Walcott and Cenk Tosun to the club in a bid to bolster their attacking options. The forward pairing have been warmly welcomed to Goodison Park by the supporters who are hoping to see an improvement in their goalscoring fortunes for the remainder of the season.

However, Everton could also be set to bolster their defensive options before the window slams shut. According to Sky Sports, Allarydce is hopeful of signing Manchester City centre-back Eliaquim Mangala today in a temporary loan deal.
