Everton should use their new funds to buy Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Nabil Bentaleb

The Algerian faces an uphill battle to get in the Spurs team at the moment.

Today it was confirmed by Everton that the club has received a major financial boost with the injection of funds from new major shareholder Farhad Moshiri.

The former Arsenal shareholder will own 49.9 per cent of the club and is set to inject some investment into the club.

One man they should consider purchasing with the renewed funding is Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Nabil Bentaleb.

The Algerian international has slipped down the pecking order at Spurs of late. The form of Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Mousa Dembele and Tom Carroll - along with the presence of the now fit Ryan Mason - has seen him struggle for football at Spurs when fit this season.

Everton could do with bringing in another central midfield option in the summer.

Darron Gibson is on his way out of the club whilst the age of Gareth Barry and Leon Osman must now be a concern.

Mo Besic and James McCarthy have both struggled with injury at time this season - as has Tom Cleverley.

Another central midfield option would be welcomed, especially a left-footer to give the club more balance in the heart of the pitch.

Bentaleb should be the type of player Everton target this summer with their new funding and Spurs would surely consider a healthy bid for the Algerian star.
