Everton boss Marco Silva might just have a busy summer ahead of him.

Charlie Nicholas named four Everton players who could leave Goodison Park this summer, when speaking exclusively to Sky Sports.

The Toffees experienced somewhat of an up and down Premier League campaign this season, and ended up in eighth spot in the table.

Marco Silva will surely be keen to bolster his ranks at Everton this summer, and there might just be a big turnover of players at Goodison before the start of next season.


That's what Charlie Nicholas thinks at least.

The Sky Sports pundit named four Everton players who he thinks will not be at the club next season, when speaking exclusively to Sky Sports:

Marco Silva the head coach

"I don't know if Leighton Baines or Phil Jagielka will get contracts, and Kurt Zouma might go back to Chelsea, so they need defenders. Andre Gomes might go back to Barcelona, so they have a couple of midfielders to get too."

Regardless of who leaves the club this summer, Everton will need to spend some serious cash, if they are to make a sustained push for the top six next season.

Quite who Silva has in mind, however remains to be seen.

One player who he will undoubtedly be desperate to sign permanently is Andre Gomes, but his fine performances for the Blues this season have led to more interest in his services from some of England's biggest clubs.

Everton have a lot of work to do this summer, and their transfer business in the next window could have a huge bearing on their chances of achieving glory over the next few years.
