Everton must “make the correct moves now” and “invest sensibly” in the remaining days of the transfer season, according to Sky Sports writer Alan Myers.
Currently on their preseason tour of America, Everton has only signed 29-year-old free agent James Tarkowski to their roster.
Myers thinks that if the Goodison Park leadership wants to improve on last season, they just need to finish all their remaining tasks correctly.
On Tuesday, July 18, the Sky Sports writer tweeted: “Important to remember that the DOF (Kevin Thelwell) needs to make the correct deals now, make the money go farther, and spend wisely.
“The days of tossing money about are over; each signing must have value and a valid justification for taking place.”

Myers said that there is “nothing imminent” and that he “wouldn’t expect any incomings till the squad is back from the States.”
Myers is right on the money when it comes to what has to happen at Goodison Park in the upcoming weeks, but the Toffees must act swiftly.
Evertonians have good right to be worried given that Richarlison, their most important forward, left the club this summer and they have only signed one player so far.
Everton’s problem is that they can’t scramble to recruit players at the last minute who won’t have the desired impact at Goodison Park.
It seems like the recruiting policy might have been planned out far more thoroughly than it has been up to this point.
There were doubts about which league Everton would play in at the conclusion of the 2021/22 season, but surely preparing for both scenarios should have been done?
The only thing Evertonians have currently got to scream about is a loan offer for Maxwel Cornet.
It will require a tremendous amount of work to have the Toffees in a strong position going into the 2022–23 season, which is just a few weeks away.
