Goals are needed in Sean Dyche’s team and, while Beto was brought in to help in that department, Tammy Abraham was the top target this summer before his injury. The England star is set to make his return before the end of the year, potentially making him available in January as Roma were originally willing to listen to offers.
Wilfried Gnonto was also being strongly linked with a move to Goodison Park as the player handed in a transfer request try and force through a move to Merseyside. A deal never materialised but Gnonto will eye the January window as an opportunity to leave and Everton’s new riches would surely be able to get a deal done.
Dyche will want more defensive recruits as well and Harry Maguire may well see January as the time to leave Manchester United. The England international is far down on Erik ten Hag’s list when all his defenders are fit and Maguire will want to be playing to stay match fit for the 2024 European Championship.
All three players won’t come cheap, but Everton fans will no doubt be dreaming of better things to come if the takeover is completed.
