General view inside the stadium before the match
According to the Liverpool Echo, Everton are willing to battle Paris Saint-Germain for Sevilla director of football Monchi - and think their new financial power and secure the deal.
The Toffees are poised to appoint Ronald Koeman as their new manager, with the Southampton boss set to replace Roberto Martinez in the Goodison Park dugout.
However, Koeman may not be the only man arriving in a new-look Everton setup, as the club are also looking to bring in a new director of football to oversee transfers.
The Liverpool Echo report that Everton still have their sights set on Sevilla's renowned director Monchi, who has been credited with the Spanish club's recent success, having taken the job in 2000.
Monchi has brought in the likes of Dani Alves, Adriano, Federico Fazio, Seydou Keita, Ivan Rakitic, Gary Medel Geoffrey Kondogbia, Julio Baptista, Aleix Vidal, Alvaro Negredo and Carlos Bacca to the club, bringing in huge money along the way whilst also achieving on the pitch.
Sevilla have won the last three Europa League finals, and Monchi's annually shrewd business in the transfer market has been a huge reason for that success.
Now though, Monchi is wanted around Europe, and the Liverpool Echo suggest that Everton are battling Paris Saint-Germain for his services.
Monchi has a release clause of £3.8m in his contract according to the report, and it's believed that with Everton's new-found financial power under new investor Farhad Moshiri, the Toffees think that they can compete with PSG and lure him to Goodison Park.
Everton allegedly won't baulk at the release clause and hope to appoint both him and Koeman in what could be an exciting new era at Goodison Park.
