Everton has not been shy of spending money during this transfer window. There have been a lot of inclusions in their first team squad of late with the Belgium international Romelu Lukaku coming in at a transfer fee of 28 million Pounds, a record for the Toffees.
Not every signing made by Everton has been heavy priced though. There have been some smart signings as well. They have brought in the wily, old fox Gareth Barry from Manchester City for free. They have also secured the services of a few young players.
But, the Everton management is still not done in the market. They are believed to be willing to have a couple of more deals.
Roberto Martinez is pretty serious about signing a winger and the player who is topping his list is Nolito who is contracted to the Spanish club Celta Vigo at the moment.
When Celta had travelled to Norwich City to play a friendly match recently, a few Everton scouts were there to watch Nolito play.
Nolito who is 27 years of age had a great La Liga in 2013-14. He had been pivotal for Celta throughout their campaign scoring goals and making play for other players too.
Despite being a specialist winger, Nolito can play the role of second striker as well with equal effectiveness.
Celta reportedly wants 8 million Pounds for letting Nolito go. It’s interesting to see if the Toffees board allows Martinez to spend this much amount. Already, a lot of bucks have been spent by the club this summer on transfers.
Martinez was actually looking to sign the Ghanaian player Christian Atsu on loan earlier, but, he failed to have an agreement with the Chelsea management for that deal and thus, he had no choice, but, to set his eyes on other wingers.

Tony Hibbert’s contract at Everton has been extended. According to the new deal that he has signed, he would remain at the Goodison Park till the end of the 2015-16 Season.
Hibbert who is 33 years of age at the moment has spent his entire career at Everton. He had joined the club academy when he was an 11-year old boy and he has not parted ways with the Toffees since then.
The last season hadn’t gone well for the veteran Right back as he had to miss a lot of matches due to injuries, but, despite that, he ended up getting the contract extension this summer and the main reason behind that is the confidence of the club Hierarchy on him. The manager, Roberto Martinez, is also believed to be his admirer.
Martinez is one of those managers who like to rely on experience. He rates the experienced players very high. So, it’s not a surprise seeing him backing Hibbert to keep performing in the top tier for a few more years.
In many of his interviews, Martinez has said that the veteran players are important for all the clubs, no matter how strong or weak they are.
However, it doesn’t mean that Hibbert will be a certainty in the starting XI of Everton in the next season.
In Hibbert’s absence in the previous season, Seamus Coleman had performed brilliantly as a right back. So, it’s him who is going to be preferred at that position at least for the initial parts of the 2014-15 Season. If he doesn’t live up to the expectations, then, Hibbert would get his opportunities.
Hibbert has so far made more than 300 appearances for Everton, but, he is yet to find the back of the net for them.

After the immense success of loan players last season, Everton manager Roberto Martinez has expressed his desire to once again target players from a temporary basis in order to sustain the success that they achieved last season. Everton finished fifth in the table after a brilliant campaign in which they came close to finishing top four for the first time since 2005. However, this achievement by the club is considered even more strenuous considering that they have been suffering from a lot of financial problems in recent years. Further, this was Martinez’ first season at the club after he gets replaced David Moyes last summer.
The possibility of repeating the same success in the upcoming campaign looks very difficult since key players from last season like Romelu Lukaku and Gareth Barry have returned to their parent clubs. Everton have been trying hard to find them on a permanent basis, but so far it has not materialised. Despite this, Martinez is not giving up and he says that he is confident of using the loan system once again the club’s advantage. Lukaku has expressed his desire to return to Everton, although it looks highly unlikely that Chelsea will allow him to do so. Barry, though, could be available on a permanent transfer after being deemed surplus to requirements.
“The loan market will be important again. I have always felt loans are a real need in our squad, and we welcome that. You look back at the last experience we had with loans was very, very significant in what they brought into the squad. Every time we bring a loan player in we treat him like our own, like one of us, and allow him to enjoy his football and create unique memories. It is fair to say we have done that with all of our players in bigger and lesser amounts,” said Martinez.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has stated that the work on next season will begin as soon as final game of the season against Hull City this weekend. Everton will be returning to Europe in competitions once again, as they are set to finish fifth in the table.

In many occasions, the presence of Europa league football has affected the form of clubs in the league.
Martinez wants to avoid this mistake by having the squad that is large enough to deal with the rigours of playing two games a week. The club will be hoping to put behind the disappointment of not having finished in the top four. They have done it only once in their Premier League era. For most of the season, they were in contention for the top four. It is only in the last few weeks of the season that they dropped significantly behind Arsenal. Defeats against Crystal Palace, Sunderland, and Manchester city made it tough for the toffees.
Everton will have to play in the play-off depending upon the result of the FA Cup final. A win for Hull city will make Everton go to the play-offs.
“As soon as we finish the final game we start work, as we did last season, to try to build a stronger squad. We have to make sure we have more numbers than last season. We don’t want to use the excuse of European football or any domestic competition affecting our league campaign. If we say that, it is because we haven’t assembled a strong enough squad at the beginning of the season,” said Martinez.

Everton have been one of the teams of the season, as they have been able to seamlessly transform from the hard defensive approach by David Moyes to the elegant passing style of Roberto Martinez. Even better has been the fact that Everton have been able to get consistent results even with this change in style football. A big part of the change has been owed to the manager, but the club also have had players capable of adapting to this style. One of their best players this season has been Seamus Coleman.
The right back has been subjected to interest from Manchester United in the summer, although the interest did not develop into anything official.

Martinez, who has had the experience of watching several top right backs in Spanish football, says that Coleman is right up there with the best in the business. The 25-year-old has already scored seven goals for the club this season.

“Seamus is a good example of a footballer with an incredible attitude and appetite for the game. He grows month by month. He’s one of the best full-backs in world football. I haven’t done anything to coax that out of him per se. He knows his potential. He plays in a demanding position which needs you to be so good in many areas. We all know that it’s difficult to get perfection in football terms. There’s always slight margins for improvement,” said Martinez about his right back and the possibility of finishing in the top four.
