Everton must make a move for Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Ruben Neves or they can forget making any progression in the Premier League next season.
It is has been a shocker of a campaign for the Toffees this year.
No ambition, pace, or personality in the side, has meant the club is in dire need of a player who can come in and rocket this team into a position where, financially speaking, they should be in the reckoning.
With Morgan Schneiderlin, 28, bumbling along there is a distinct lack of quality in the defensive midfield position – but this can be rectified with the exciting Neves, who has set the Championship alight.
The former FC Porto ace has shot to stardom, starring in a Wolves side which is on the brink of Premier League promotion.
Not just a player who breaks-up the play, he is creative and can score goals too – a true all-round player.
Neves can be one of the best players in the top-flight next season and in the Blues side he can be the man the team is built around.
Another season of Schenierderlin and Tom Davies and co. will end disastrously.
There are far too many players at Goodison Park going through the motions but with the young Portuguese midfield maestro in the ranks, they can start to progress.
