Everton is expected to boost its squad ahead of their continental competition in addition to the local ones next season.
Manager Ronaldo Koeman would likely bring in an attacking and central midfielder, a defender and a striker.
Davy Klaassen of Ajax is one of the top players on his list, according to reports. Everton would have to shell as much as £21 million to land him. The 24-year old has numerous admirers but it would be difficult to lure him from the Dutch side. The midfielder scored 20 goals in all competitions this season. If Ross Barkley eventually leaves as it is being rumoured, Klaassen would be the perfect guy.
Southampton’s DusanTadic is another star linked with Goodison Park. When Koeman joined the Saints in 2014, Tadic was the first signing. He is a key player for Southampton but Koeman can appeal to him if he wants. The 28-year old could be the ideal candidate if Barkley leaves and Aaron Lennon does not return.
Eredivisie champions Feyenoord has a brilliant No. 10 in TonnyVilhena. The 22-year old is very energetic and he bosses the midfield. He is a top talent and he is young. He has already played over 170 games for the club and he can help Everton in Europe next season. With his defensive tone – he makes an average of 2.6 tackles per game –, he would come in handy in the Premier League.
Koeman would have to get his recruitment right as he leads the club to another phase. The club was a bit in shambles when he joined but with an increased budget he has been impressive.
