Everton finished the 2018/19 campaign with a flourish defeating Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United to secure an eigth-place finish.
The challenge for Marco Silva next season will be to surely challenge for a place among Europe’s elite.
In order to achieve that, the boss will surely look to bolster his ranks between now and the beginning of the campaign.
Andre Gomes has already turned his loan deal into a permanent one, whilst goalkeeper Jonas Lossl has arrived from Huddersfield Town.
According to The Guardian, Silva is keen to sign another midfielder in the shape of Manchester City outcast Fabian Delph.
Delph could cost up to £16 million, according to The Sun, and it remains to be seen whether Everton will make their move.
The Toffees would be wise to save their money, however.
In Tom Davies, Silva has a player more than capable of playing regular football. Alongside Gomes, he could really thrive and Delph only represents a short-term fix.
The England international is 29 and hasn’t played football in central midfield for a while, having filled in at left-back for the champions.
Davies started just 10 games last season and it is time that Silva trusted him to play a little bit more and give him a proper run in the side.
The 21-year-old looks set for a bright future in the game and the signing of Delph would only serve to hold him back even further.
