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

Mathew Nash



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

Oumar Niasse – £13.5 million from Lokomotiv Moscow

Shani Tarashaj – £3 million from Grasshoppers

David Henen – £200,000 from Olympiakos

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.

Everton fans react as Hirving Lozano puts Germany to the sword

Mexico have caused a World Cup shock by defeating Germany 1-0 in Russia. The player who scored the goal was Hirving Lozano, one of the players tipped by The Boot Room as one to watch at the World Cup.

The PSV Eindhoven winger put in a fine performance as Mexico put Germany to the sword. Throughout the game he left Germany’s excellent right-back, Joshua Kimmich, chasing shadows and his goal was a demonstration in poise.

Few fans should be surprised. ‘Chucky‘, as he is known, was incredible for PSV last season. He scored 19 goals and provided 11 assists for the Dutch side last season.

One team’s fans who were watching with interest were those at Everton.

Lozano has been heavily linked with a move to Goodison Park in recent weeks. He is a firm favourite of new Everton director of football Marcel Brands, who signed him at PSV.

So his performance against Germany certainly impressed fans at Everton.

However, there was also a concern after the result.

Because now Everton fans are of the belief other teams will be coming in with better offers and the chance to play in the Champions League.

There was plenty of negative thinking from Everton’s fans, who are now afraid the talented attacker might head elsewhere.  

But with Brands’ influence, Farhad Moshiri’s funding and a strong link with his agent Mino Raiola Everton must keep the faith and hope that they can win the race for Lozano this summer.

Here is some of the reaction to his match-winning performance against Germany…

All the latest news and gossip from Premier League side Everton.

Plattenhardt set

Everton will hope to complete the signature of German full-back Marvin Plattenhardt, after the World Cup.

The defender will be hoping to be in action this afternoon, as Germany take on Mexico in Russia.

His future at current club Hertha Berlin is in doubt however and, according to the Daily Star, a £16 million move to Goodison Park should be on the cards at the conclusion of the tournament.

The 26-year-old is being targeted as a long-term replacement for Everton’s current full-back Leighton Baines.

Diop to London

It appears Everton have missed out in the pursuit of Issa Diop. The French under-21 star had previously been linked with a £26 million move to Goodison Park. However, reports this weekend are suggesting the Toulouse star is heading to London.

L’Equipe report that West Ham United have won the race to sign the player this summer. The report claims that West Ham have agreed a €25 million (£21.9 million) deal to sign the player this summer, beating out further interest from Sevilla. The deal will be concluded early next week.

Gylfi cool as ice

Everton fans were left ecstatic yesterday with the performance of their midfield maestro Gylfi Sigurdsson at the World Cup.

The ‘Iceman’ was coolness personified as he thrived in his nation’s impressive 1-1 draw with Lionel Messi’s Argentina.

Considering he has only just returned from injury, Everton fans will be over the moon to see he has suffered no ill effect from the lay-off, as he put in a tremendous performance for the World Cup minnows.

Blow for Crystal Palace as Juventus reportedly enter race for Patrick van Aanholt

Juventus are reportedly interested in bringing the fan favourite to Turin this summer.

Crystal Palace‘s hopes of tying down left-back Patrick van Aanholt have taken a serious blow today, with ESPN reporting that Juventus are plotting a potential swoop for the Dutchman this summer.

The Italian champions are said to be drawing up a shortlist of potential candidates to replace superstar fullback Alex Sandro, should he leave for Manchester United in the near future, and the defender is said to feature highly on the wish-list.

Van Aanholt emerged as a sensational attacking full-back last season, and orchestrated a number of vital wins for the Eagles during the latter half of the campaign. The ex-Chelsea defender bagged an impressive five goals and an assist in 28 appearances, as his side secured a comfortable 11th place finish, and Roy Hodgson will be desperate to keep him at Selhurst Park beyond the window.

The Eagles are already in the process of fending off Everton for the 27-year-old’s services, with Marco Silva registering his interest in the player last month (Daily Mail). But it appears the task will become a whole lot harder now the Serie A giants are in the mix.

As an attacking full-back by trade, Van Aanholt’s pace – registering the second-fastest sprint speed in the Premier League last term – and versatility, allow him to play anywhere along the left-flank similarly to Sandro, which suits Juve and Max Allegri, who has a knack of employing different systems and strategies regularly.

The player’s current contract runs until 2021 with Palace and he has previously revealed that he is well settled and comfortable in south-east London. However, the prospect of moving to one of the world’s biggest clubs, who have just recorded their seventh successive Scudetto, would be incredibly enticing. And at 27, it could be the last chance for the former Sunderland man to secure a high-profile move.
