Martinez admits going into the season lacking 2-3 players

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has admitted that his side is lacking 2-3 players as his transfer hunt goes on.

Everton have been fairly quiet in the transfer window so far and are the lowest spenders of all Premier League teams and following some poor performances in pre-season friendlies, Martinez admits they are on the hunt for 3 new players.

“We know we need two to three new players and we are going to make sure we get the right ones.

“We are looking for that area [up front], the number 10 position, and I think we need a centre-half; the three areas are quite clear.

“I have been very impressed with some youngsters and I think they are ready to help the first team as well.”

When he was asked about the need to find a new number 10 the Catalan replied: “They aren’t players that are easy to find. You want players with great vision and technical ability but who can also cope with the physicality of the league.

“I do feel we need to use the full window and try to bring the right people. We have got a clear idea of what we want to do.”
Should this have all been sorted well before the season started?
