While they do not name any possible signings, Everton fans will not be surprised that these are the areas their manager is looking to improve.

Gareth Barry is very much coming to the end of his career and a replacement is needed, while there is a serious lack of back up to Seamus Coleman in the current squad.

Who they sign remains to be seen, but it appears it could be an exciting transfer window for the club as they look to become genuine top four contenders as soon as possible.
