Marco Silva’s maiden season in charge of Everton has proved to have had some
success mixed in with plenty of disappointment too.
But the club are on track for a strong finish to the term under the manager’s
watchful eye, with a top-half finish within sight if the results keep coming.
With the likes of Watford, Leicester City and West Ham United all pushing
for a spot in the top half of England’s top-flight standings this season,
there’s still plenty to play for during the remainder of the campaign.
The Toffees are now regarded as one of the favourites to secure a top-half
finish this current campaign at odds-on 2/7 with bet365 in the
football betting, after their more impressive run of results of late under
the guidance of Silva.
With Silva hoping to enjoy a stronger start and overall success next term, the Portuguese tactician will be out to boost his ranks in the summer. So, here are several names that have been linked and could arrive at Goodison Park in the summer market.
Kieran Trippier – Tottenham Hotspur
After a mixed term so far for Silva, he will be keen to strengthen all over
the pitch, including in his backline and wide areas.
One name that has been linked with a high-profile switch to Goodison Park is
Tottenham Hotspur right-back Kieran Trippier, who is tipped to depart his
present employers in the coming months in a possible swap deal after
some criticism for his recent Spurs showings.
It has been reported by various outlets that the Toffees are keen on the
England international right-back, while Mauricio Pochettino wants to land
centre-back Michael Keane. Therefore, a potential swap deal could be on the
cards, and it’s some transfer business that would suit all parties involved
this summer window.
Spurs are in need of English players to boost their homegrown quota, and
Belgium international defender Toby Alderweireld is rumoured to be set for
a departure from the capital club, meaning Keane would be a welcome boost
