Martinez - We Want Four New Players At Everton
Bookmark and Share

With stories of clubs looking to sign Everton's John Stones, Romelu Lukaku, James McCarthy and Ross Barkley once the transfer window opens, Roberto Martinez has said he won't be letting any of his prized assets leave in the Summer.

Indeed the Everton manager is looking to bring in 3 or 4 players. One maybe Aaron Lennon from Spurs.

Roberto said: "We're not looking to sell any of our big assets. We're really excited with the young players, we don't have to sell the assets and we are in a very strong position to cope with whatever happens in the window.

"They're coveted players of course, and we should all be very proud of their development.

"We haven't had any sort of conversation with Spurs.

"The reality is Aaron has been a revelation since he came to the Club, he has set real high standards and made a massive contribution.

"He's had a phenomenal impact on our team. Whatever happens in the future has to be something the player is happy with.

"It's not the moment to speak about his long-term future. The next two games are important for him to finish strong. At the end of that, we'll sit down and see where Aaron wants to be. His football and his performances reflect that he has enjoyed his spell here.

"We are clear in the areas that we want to strengthen. 

"It's something that we've been working on for a long time now. We found real continuity with this year's squad looking at what we achieved last season. We need to carry on with that and then, on top, we need to bring probably three or four players to strengthen in areas where our players need help.

"The goalkeeping situation is clear. We have Tim Howard and Joel Robles, then there's Russell Griffiths and Jindrich Stanek. They are the four goalkeepers we are going to work with in the next campaign, so we are strong in that position."

If we really are looking to sign a centre half I would much rather take a look at Micah Richards on a free than Jonny Evans for money

4 players we need to bring in a center half, natural left winger to replace pienar, center mid to replace Barry and another striker my wish for these positions would be Austin for a striker, Shaw crowd for center half, voland for the left, James milner as I believe he wants out of city and can cover the whole of midfield, also perhaps loaning deulofeu again.

We need at least, Kasper Schmeichel (?7m??), Ron Vlaar (free), Danny Ings (free) and then spend another ?18m - that's only ?25m spent and added good quality - obviously a few will need to go, namely Alcaraz and likely - unfortunately - Distin to name a couple. For me Kone and McGeady can go too but I'd probably keep the rest.....

We need quality not quantity.We need a new LCB,RW,CF. then Cleverly to cover for Gibson and then replace Barry with Ledson when ready.

It doesn't matter who we sign if they are not managed properly!

Sigurdsson would suit our style of play , as would Bony . My concern about Ings and Austin would we need to be analytical about the goals that they actually scored that had a positive impact upon the results . A friend who is a Derby fan told me that when Dean Sanders went to Liverpool we had a great escape because most of his goals came in defeats . He was proven right .

For a [relatively] attacking midfielder ... Jonjo Shelvey, anyone?!

Gylfi Sigurdsson, 10 goals and 8 assists in the Prem this season. He is exactly what is required.
Pat S, Southport., 9:03 PM 11/05/2015
Ings, Austin, deoulefou, Cech

It has been a hot and cold season where we have seen many injuries and a serious lacking in the defence.What we need with upcoming season it is serious look at our older players who getting injured often.Hence we seriously need to get younger players to start perfoming and the get players like Delefeou back and a strong defender......

We need several players in several areas. First of all, our goalkeeping stocks seem to be fine, but need to look for a replacement for ageing Howard. Our right back might need better depth. Mattia De Sciglio from Milan could be an option. Jores Okore from Aston Villa or even James Tomkins from West Ham. A central midfielder like Sergi Roberto from Barca could bring some sprak into the midfield. Another midfield option could be Manchester United outcast Tom Cleverly. Our winger depth seems to be just fine. Although Gerard Deulofeu could bring some much needed spark and flair into the winger position. The striker position needs to have more depth. Rom cannot hold the team on his shoulders alone and Kone's injury prone body cannot handle much more. So we need to bring in the likes of Charlie Austin or even Connor Wickham who both have shown promise, but also their ability to score goals.
Lachlan, Melbourne Australia, 12:23 AM 11/05/2015
Very disappointing season, with a good run in Europe and the Man U win the highlights. We surely need a potent striker up front to help out Lukaku. A real fox in the box with good movement - Hernandez / Danny Ings would fit that bill. A real playmaker as Osman is spending to much time on the sidelines and we need fresh legs. Central defender with pace and commands the area.

Before we write out our wish list, we must keep firmly away from the realms of fantasy. Despite the massive cash windfall each club received from the collective tv deal we always seem to be prepared - or constrained - to be a customer at the corner shop. It's glaringly obvious we need another potent striker, depth at centre back and more guile in midfield. I expect we'll pick up a couple of bargain basement foreign players but I'd love to know how much either Rhodes or Gestede would cost us from Blackburn. One thing is for sure, we don't want that fannying Januzai from United. He's just a younger version of McGeady
Bri, Woolton, 8:43 PM 10/05/2015
I agree, 3-4 players needed. If we get Lennon, and someone to push ROM that would be a good start. We've got some good kids to come through so whoever else we get have to be better than we've got. For me holding on to the lads we've got is essential.

Wilfred Bony-Tom Cleverley-
the obsructed view, liverpool, 6:47 PM 10/05/2015
I would like a good striker that gives Lukaku good competition. How about Austin from relegated QPR? We also need a central defender who gives Stones/Jags competition. I would love to see either Deulufeu or Toure (Both from Barca) on the wings. Both would hive Everton another dimention. A creative and pacy central midfielder would also be on my wishlist. Looking forward to silly season!!

Another phenomenal. Wish the team was.
