Roberto Martinez gives insight into his vision for Everton after Moshiri’s investment

Everton have big plans for the future after securing new investment.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez has told Sky Sports that the influx of money he will have to spend after Farhad Moshiri’s investment is not the only bonus from the Iranian’s arrival at Goodison Park.

Moshiri has bought 49.9% of Everton, and he has already promised to inject money into the Toffees.

Sky Sports suggest that Everton will be looking to move to a new ground in the coming years, while they are also aiming to keep their current squad together.

Romelu Lukaku, John Stones and Ross Barkley are all set to land new deals, and Everton should have further money to strengthen in the summer.

However, Martinez is remaining calm about Everton’s new found spending power, suggesting that it is more important to use the money to develop the club for the long-term, rather than look at short term investments.

”It is not just how much money you can spend because in the Premier League you will have money to spend," Martinez said.

"It is creating a club that players want to come to as they feel they can reach their potential and win things.

"We want to become a winning team. I hope I have a billion pounds to spend in the summer - that would be very nice - but I don't see that as the success of bringing Farhad into the club.

"It is more what we need in the next five, 10, 15 years in terms of creating the perfect club for a player.”

Everton have generally been limited in who they could sign in recent transfer windows, with Bill Kenwright often criticised for his lack of spending by supporters of the Merseyside club.

The Toffees could look to spend big in the summer, though, and add to a squad that is already packed with talent.

Everton, despite their current mid-table league position, have an enviable group of players and it will be Martinez’s job to make sure that they move forward together in future years.
