Our landlord reckons the summer transfer window will be a huge one for Everton as Ronald Koeman looks to evolve a squad he inherited from Roberto Martinez into genuine competitors for a regular place in the Premier League’s top four.
Matters on the outward front may be slightly out of his control but Farhad Moshiri’s recent investment in the club should give the Dutch gaffer more than enough funds this summer to replace potential departures and further elevate his team towards potential Champions League qualification.
Everton punters in the Tavern aren’t too keen on the idea of their club taking off-cuts from those just above them in the Premier League table. But if there’s one team you should be trying to take players from, it’s unquestionably the reigning champions.
With that in mind, our landlord has outlined three fringe players that who’ve struggled for game-time at Chelsea this season that Koeman should seriously consider swooping for before the end of the summer transfer window.
