With Roberto Martinez currently leading the race to become Hull City’s new manager (The Guardian), we take a look at three Everton players who he could look to sign at the KC Stadium.

Darron Gibson

Everton's Darron Gibson concedes a penalty against  Leicester's Jeffrey Schlupp

Gibson may have signed a new contract at Everton, but it is hard to see where he fits in at Goodison Park.

With Hull needing additions, Gibson would bring Premier League experience and energy to their midfield.

Arouna Kone

Arouna Kone celebrates scoring the fifth goal for Everton in the 6-2 win over Sunderland

Martinez is a known fan of Kone, having worked with him at both Wigan and Everton.

Hull are likely to need to strengthen their attack if they want to stay up, and Kone’s arrival would add competition for places up-front.

Joel Robles

Jamie Vardy gestures towards Everton's Joel Robles after scoring the third goal for Leicester from the penalty spot

Robles is another Martinez favourite, and it seems that he could be made available for transfer by Everton.

The Toffees have already signed Maarten Stekelenburg this summer, and they look set to sign a new first-choice goalkeeper.

Although Hull already have Allan McGregor in goal, Robles’ arrival would mean that the Scottish international was put under some pressure.
