Everton Transfer Thread - Summer 2020


Player Valuation: £70m
Please avoid posting stuff from low-tiered/clickbaity sources:

  • Tier 1 – Almost undisputed when discussing a Transfer Rumour. They may not be the first to discuss a rumour, but if they are talking about it; then it is almost certainly true, and possibly close to complete.
  • Tier 2 – Known to have current sources, but are still fallible and just short of being considered an authority on rumour discussions. However, multiple individuals or sources from this tier reporting the same rumour may indicate a strong possibility of truth to the rumour.
  • Tier 3 – Unreliable, and not to be trusted solo. They fall into near click-bait practices and are often fighting for relevance in a sea of rumours.
  • Tier 4 – Not to be trusted at all. These companies make money out of ensuring that you read them and they will make up anything to get you to harness advertising revenue.
  • Tier 5 – Absolute Idiots. Why are you even reading them?

I tried to find out when the summer window starts and ends, but had no joy. Apparently there's a meeting on Feb 6th to decide when it ends, but it is likely to be before the season starts for domestic buys. When can clubs start confirming they will buy someone or confirming/completing transfers?


Player Valuation: £70m
All joking aside though, we should really start putting plans in place to move the following players out of the door permanently as soon as is feasibly possible in the summer:


With the wages saved after getting rid of even just 4 or 5 of that 8, leaves us in a much healthier place in terms of FFP without losing any quality from the squad. Culling players should be a priority from day 1 of the window.
