Boyhood Evertonian and one-time Liverpool favourite Robbie Fowler says that the Blues have stolen a march on the rest of the Premier League by doing major transfer business early in the summer.
The former Anfield hitman said that Everton have made the rest of the Premier League look “a bit stupid” by getting deals done for Jordan Pickford, Davy Klaasen and Henry Onyekuru before July 1st.
Fowler paid particular praise to Bill Kenwright, who helped bring in major investor Farhad Moshiri.
“I wouldn’t presume to suggest that Liverpool have, in any way, failed in the transfer market because it is a long summer and you have to wait for the window to close to get a full picture,” said Fowler.
“But I have to hand it to Bill Kenwright and his team at Everton.
“They have stolen a march on the rest of the Premier League clubs and even made them look a bit stupid.
“I honestly think that doing your business early this summer is not only wise, but vital, because I reckon prices are only going one way as deals start to get done… through the roof.”
