Allardyce wants 3 incoming transfers in January
Everton manager Sam Allardyce has confirmed that in the perfect world he would bring in 3 players in the January transfer window, but has also said that in order to do so he will need to trim his squad.
Everton currently have over 30 players in their first team squad, despite the recent departures of Ross Barkley and Kevin Mirallas (Loan) and Big Sam could be set to let younger players go out on loan or sell some of the forgotten men.
Sandro Ramirez, Davy Klaassen and Mo Besic look to be the 3 that are being linked, but more could leave.
Allardyce told the Liverpool Echo “There would have to be some exits, I don’t think there is any doubt about that because we’ve got about 30 players.
“Some of them are a lot of young talent that has developed and needs developing and maybe we might choose to let that development happen somewhere else on loan until the end of the season.
“But certainly, at the moment, we need to move a few players to bring maybe one or two in. I don’t think we need to think about anymore than that – maybe three – that would really good business.
“Whether we’ve got the capabilities to do that, time will tell as the window moves on but this one certainly was the most important and hopefully he will be a success immediately.”
