Said last season we needed 2-3 key top class signings. Will be the same this time.

I'd be looking at the likes of Werner, Bonucci and Koke as examples of statement signings for this club to excel to that next level and challenge the top 6 and beyond.

Werner was funnier.

Might be funny or laughable but they would need to be the benchmark for 6th and beyond unless ofcourse your happy with 7th at best.

We're miles off that, and we're not just going to go out and sign top UCL talent out of nowhere are we? Why on earth would they come to Everton? Be honest with yourself.

Got to start somewhere to make that step up, will need statement signings at some point to break back into that top six unless we are content with 7th place for the next three seasons under Silva.

Geneally speaking deals are probably agreed in principle by players and clubs, most things are in the pipeline. With it being a world cup year it takes a little longer completing formalities.

I'd imagine after the knockout stages of the WC, transfers will be in full swing.

It's a difficult one trying to shift so many players out of the club which we don't want and at the same time other clubs aren't interested in.

Only way forward is to subsidise there wages on season long loan deals but then it's starting the process all over again for that player a year later, not removing them of the books permanently. Otherwise we take huge hits take the financial loss and learn from it.

Either way this chapter is going to turn out very costly for the club.

Assuming there a large slice on sarcasm in that!! :)

Yes he will be on big money I suspect, but creativity looks in short supply in our team and I think we could do with someone with experience who would add a lot going forward and he ticks all those boxes.

Agree with this. You have to hope the club who already identified targets for that midfield creativity birth. Cannot be like last season where we got overrun in midfield many times.

Zaha wanting to leave palace.

Word is he was our first choice but we were priced out of a move.

If lookman is to go we may be tempted to go back in I suppose?

We may go back in for him but he's probably more likely to favour a move to someone like Spurs or Chelsea.

Bernard is exactly the type of signings we need...I only fear that the crowd wont take him to his heart as the majority of us often appreciate the work rate of a Naismith over the skills of a Bernard-type.

Still worried that we are not linked with any striker as that is a position vital to strenghten.

Kanchelskis/Limpar. 100% flair. Anything else was questionable. They were crowd favourites mate.
