Steve Walsh has identified Everton transfer targets for winter window

Everton director of football Steve Walsh has admitted that the club have identified a number of Everton transfer targets that they want to speak to about joining the club.

Walsh has admitted that his new role differs to the one he had at Leicester, but he hopes to emulate his transfer success that he had at Leicester on Merseyside.

Walsh helped Leicester to their first ever Premier League title earlier this year and it is widely regarded that his transfer purchases helped them to this, including key signings Jamie Vardy, N’golo Kante and Riyad Mahrez.

Walsh said: “Recruitment is key at any football club and Everton is no different.

“Hopefully I can duplicate here what I did at Leicester.

“There are certainly one or two players out there that we’d like to talk to and convince that Everton is the place for them.”

“I’m enjoying it very much,” he said. “It’s a new role but I’m enjoying it so far.

“I’m not in the dressing room as much but I’m still out there trying to find the best talent.”

Walsh also says that he enjoys working with Everton manager Ronald Koeman and likes the way he works.

“He’s absolutely top drawer. I’ve been really impressed by him.

“He’s driven, he’s methodical and he knows what he wants. I enjoy his brand of football.”

Can Walsh replicate his Leicester success?
