Everton boss Marco Silva has hinted that he may be in the market for another central midfielder in what remains of the transfer window this summer.
Silva admitted that it will need to be a busy time for Everton, and hinted that the rumours linking Everton to Abdoulaye Doucoure today, but as most are away a striker is a priority.
The Everton boss also admitted that he needs back up for Seamus Coleman at right back, after sending JonJoe Kenny on loan to Germany, as well as a replacement for the loan of Kurt Zouma which ended at the end of last season.
The transfer deadline is fast approaching, and the window closes on Thursday at 5pm, meaning the Blues will need to act fast.
“We have to [be busy]. We have to,” he said when asked if there needs to be more business done before deadline day.
“In this moment, as you know, our number is not really big. We need some more players.
“We lost one central defender. He was not our player but we lost him. We lost Gana, Lookman also.
“So we have to look for one winger. We have to look for one central defender. Let’s see in the middle zone if we do something more or not. Then a possible striker and right back.
“It has to be a really busy week. Of course, it is not the best things but our board and our football structure, they are trying to do their best to give us the conditions to be more competitive and be a better team.”
