Everton have an outside chance of getting into Europe next season via UEFA's Fair Play League.
A place in the Europe League is up for grabs, the only problem is it starts on 1st July, before the first team are due back for preseason training.
Roberto Martinez though is keen on taking the place and giving the Everton youngsters some valuable experience.
Roberto said: "I don't want to speak about this now because it sounds like we've already got it. But to answer it very clearly, if we get awarded a place we will embrace it and we will enjoy it as a football club.
"The international players are involved with their countries until June 17 so obviously they wouldn't be involved for the earlier rounds. But this is a competition we would accept as a football club.
"We have a lot of young, talented players who have already played in Europe and they will be desperate for that sort of experience.
"As a football club we would embrace that and I think the first four games would be taken in that manner. I wouldn't allow that fair play position to get in the middle of our pre-season preparation.
"But we would embrace it as a football club. Absolutely."
