£139.3 million: The staggering total it cost to sign the 12 players Everton could sell this summer


£139.3 million: The staggering total it cost to sign the 12 players Everton could sell this summer

This week has seen Everton’s new director of football Marcel Brands confirm that the club need to sell players before they can buy them this summer. The Dutchman confirmed that he wants to trim a bloated squad for new manager Marco Silva to operate in the best possible manner.

The news saw plenty being linked with an exit, including Wayne Rooney, who has an offer on the table from DC United.

On top of the England legend, The Mirror named 12 current Everton players who could be given the cut this summer.

Here is a list of those players with their original transfer fee, and relevant link to the price paid:

Joel Robles – Undisclosed (£3.6 million) from Atletico Madrid

Ashley Williams – £12 million from Swansea City

Ramiro Funes Mori – £9.5 million from River Plate

Luke Garbutt – £600,000 from Leeds United

Yannick Bolasie – £25 million from Crystal Palace

Ademola Lookman – £11 million from Charlton Athletic

Sandro Ramirez – £5.3 million from Malaga

Morgan Schneiderlin – £22 million from Manchester United

Davy Klaassen – £23.6 million from Ajax

Kevin Mirallas – £6 million from Olympiakos

Brendan Galloway – £4 million from MK Dons

Tyias Browning – Youth product

Matthew Pennington – Youth product

The 12 set to be sold by Everton comes to a combined total of a whopping £139.3 million. In some cases, it is not fair to judge. The likes of Kevin Mirallas, Joel Robles and Ramiro Funes Mori have been decent members of the Everton squad for some time. Others, such as Davy Klaassen, Sandro Ramirez or Morgan Schneiderlin are less likely to be appreciated.

Everton will struggle to get anywhere near £100 million combined for the 12 on the list and it certainly seems the club must ensure they are making the right choices in the transfer market this summer.
