Everton are now looking to sign a “great” £35,000-per-week player for Sean Dyche.



The Toffees might make full use of his contractual predicament…

It’s going to be a big summer for Everton, with inexpensive deals more vital than ever, and new reports suggest that they may make a move to take advantage of one player’s contract collapse.

Of course, given last season’s point deductions, the Toffees will not want to risk breaking the Premier League’s FFP rules again. Furthermore, it is unclear whether Everton will be able to spend following the collapse of 777 Partners’ takeover, which was confirmed by the club. And, while John Textor’s alleged forthcoming bid could save the Toffees, they may still be limited in the summer transfer window.

Without a buyout, the only way to raise finances may be to sell key players like Jarrad Branthwaite and Amadou Onana, the two most prominent names associated with summer departure. However, if the Toffees act intelligently in the market, such sales may be unnecessary, with Bobby Decordova-Reid potentially contributing.

According to TeamTalk, Everton could make a move for Decordova-Reid after his contract negotiations with Fulham fell down, allowing the forward to become a free agent this summer. The Toffees aren’t the only team interested, with Leeds United also keen, but Goodison Park officials may be hoping that their Premier League status puts them in prime position to sign the 31-year-old in the coming months.

Decordova-Reid had a fine season at Craven Cottage, and given Everton’s lack of attacking potency last season, his arrival might provide Dyche with a much-needed lift. The forward, who earns a reputed £35,000 per week and is a free agent, exemplifies the type of agreement that those at Goodison Park should be looking for this summer.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s best work at Everton came with Richarlison alongside him; but, since the Brazilian left Merseyside for London and Everton for Tottenham Hotspur, the England international has struggled to reproduce that form.
