With a mid-table finish beckoning, Everton will already be casting their mind ahead to the summer transfer window.
Marco Silva has had an underwhelming first season in charge at Goodison Park but he will be hoping to strengthen his squad and push on next term.
Here are three soon-to-be free agents that Everton could pick up as bargain additions in the summer.
Olivier Giroud is out of contract this summer and would be a good centre-forward fit for the Toffees.
Chelsea might fancy keeping the 87-cap France international now that they have a transfer ban but he needs first-team assurances.
The 32-year-old is strong in the air, has an impressive left foot and has scored 77 Premier League goals for Arsenal and Chelsea.
After netting a hat-trick in midweek, Giroud could be a bargain short-term fix for Everton.
There is likely to be an almighty scramble for FC Porto midfielder Hector Herrera in the summer if he does not sign fresh terms with the Portuguese club.
The Mexico international is an energetic box-to-box midfielder who could suit Everton’s system perfectly.
Some top clubs are likely to be chasing the 28-year-old so Everton would need to act quickly if they are to win this race.
Another Porto star, Yacine Brahimi, is also approaching the end of his contract and is likely to be a man in-demand.
Many media outlets, including L’Expression, report that Everton are among the Premier League clubs keen on the Algeria international.
The 29-year-old has scored 11 goals from the wing this season and could be a shrewd capture on a free transfer.
