Marco Silva is confident Everton's power brokers will deliver the “players I ask them for” with less than a month of the transfer window left.
The Blues have yet to make a signing this summer but Silva confirmed their targets have been agreed upon with director of football Marcel Brands and that club officials are working hard to add to them to the ranks.
Everton must also reduce the size of their squad this summer and are hoping to work with a group of 25 players for the Portuguese coach's first season at Goodison.
Ramiro Funes Mori and Wayne Rooney have been sold, Joel Robles has left on a free and Luke Garbutt has gone on loan but a significant number of departures are still required as Everton reduce their wage bill to make way for new recruits.
And Silva remains confident the Blues will land their transfer targets before the August 9 deadline.
“We have to do it," Silva told the ECHO.
“It is something we have to do.
“We have our targets and we have already decided the positions we want to improve in our squad.
“We believe in all of our players but, for sure, we will do that and we have decided our targets.
“Our board, our chairman, our sporting director, they are doing everything they can to give me the players I ask them for.”
Everton, last week, walked away from talks with Celtic over left-back Kieran Tierney while they are in discussions with Barcelona about signing centre-half Yerry Mina.
Silva, it is believed, also wants to strengthen his midfield and attacking options this summer.
