The Toffees’ recent transfer activity could mean for a change in system under Marco Silva’s stewardship
There’s just one week left until the transfer window closes and many teams are frantically trying to recruit new talent before the start of the 2018/19 season.
It looked like it was going to be a pretty quiet summer in the transfer market for Everton, however, the recent acquisitions of Richarlison from Watford as well as Lucas Digne from Barcelona has changed things.
The likes of Jamie Carragher have claimed the Toffees are not well prepared for the upcoming campaign but the arrivals of Richarlison and Digne could give Everton a fresh look.
They have also been linked to some more players including a star of the World Cup so how might marco Silva’s side look next season?
Below you can see a potential Everton line-up for the 2018/19 season.
This one is a no-brainer. After a fairly solid first season on Merseyside, Pickford showed himself to be the real deal with his heroics for England at the World Cup.
The only concern Everton will have is if a bigger club goes after their keeper. The likes of Chelsea have reportedly showed an interest in Pickford. However, it seems like he is being offered a new and improved contract with his current club.
The signing of Digne from Barca is a potentially really good find from Everton. The left-back clearly has the talent but whether he will be able to shift Leighton Baines out of the team is another thing.
Coleman made his long-awaited return to the fold in the second half of last season and should be back fully recovered by the start of the season.
The centre-back pairing could be a cause for concern, however. Keane was below par last season and Jagielka is an ageing player but he makes the cut as Ashley Williams appears set for a move away from Goodison Park.
A midfield three could be the way to go for Everton under Marco Silva to compliment their talented looking front line.
Local lad Davies is has been a consistent performer and a fan favourite so obviously makes this team while Schneiderlin is a solid defensive midfielder.
The Toffees have also been linked to unlikely World Cup star Cheryshev. The Russian scored four goals at the tournament including spectacular strikes against Saudi Arabia and Croatia.
Cheryshev was once on the books at Real Madrid so he clearly has something about him.
After signing for the Toffees in January, Walcott has performed well so far and the acquisition of Richarlison could complement Cenk Tosun’s classic centre forward style of play.
If these three could find a way of working together it could be a promising season for Everton.
