Everton manager Sam Allardyce has confirmed that there is still business left to do in this January transfer window and there would likely be more additions to the squad.
But the boss was also quick to point out that in order for the Toffees to bring players in, they would have to make cuts to the squad first.
Already the club has seen Kevin Mirallas depart on loan for Olympiakos and Ross Barkley sign for Chelsea, but there are suggestions that the likes of Davy Klassen and Sandro Ramirez could also be on their way out of Everton.
Ramirez was considered one of the top prospects in European football when he arrived at Goodison – but has struggled since his arrival in England and may fancy his chances elsewhere.
“There would have to be some exits, I don’t think there is any doubt about that because we’ve got about 30 players,” the manager said in the Liverpool Echo.
“But certainly, at the moment, we need to move a few players to bring maybe one or two in. I don’t think we need to think about anymore than that – maybe three – that would be really good business.”
The Toffees signed Cenk Tosun from Turkish side Besiktas last week in a £27million deal and have been linked with Celtic forward Moussa Dembele and West Ham’s Diafra Sakho as they pursue attacking options.
Everton have a tough away trip to Tottenham Hotspur this weekend to face a Spurs side that does not concede many goals.
It will be an ideal opportunity for the manager to see just how well his new-look strike force gels together.
Tosun could be in line to make his debut following his arrival and it will be a chance to see what difference the striker makes to the Toffees attack.
