Reports explain Moshiri's immediate Everton plans, disclose what he has told Martinez

New Everton investor Farhad Moshiri is reportedly planning contract talks with a host of players.

According to the Daily Mirror, Everton's new investor Farhad Moshiri is prioritising new contracts for some of the club's top players - and the Daily Mail suggest that he has told Roberto Martinez that there will be money to spend this summer.

The Toffees have long been seen as a club that needed new investment outside of chairman Bill Kenwright, and now they finally have that.

Everton confirmed on their official website on Saturday that Iranian businessman Moshiri, a former shareholder with Arsenal, has purchased a 49.9% stake in Everton, as the club look to move forward on and off the field.

Fans are understandably excited, and the buzz around Goodison Park may increase after reports shed some light on Moshiri's immediate plans with Everton.

The Mirror report that extending contracts of current Toffees stars is near the top of Moshiri's agenda, with Seamus Coleman, John Stones, Ross Barkley and Gerard Deulofeu allegedly the first in line for new contracts - but the feeling is that Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku won't be convinced to stay this summer, even with new money on offer.

The Daily Mail also report that Moshiri has already met with Everton boss Roberto Martinez and made it clear that the Spaniard will have considerable money to spend in the transfer market this summer.

Fans took to Twitter over the weekend to suggest that they would like to see Ukrainian international Andriy Yarmolenko and former Toffees ace Wayne Rooney signed at the end of the season, and whilst there are no clear indications that either player will be targeted heavily, Martinez - who has been under pressure for large spells of the season - should have plenty of money to work with the summer, something he hasn't been used to during his time at Goodison Park.

Who would you like to see Everton sign with their new-found cash?
