Roberto Martinez will look to strengthen in the January transfer window.
The club were left in profit after raising more than £30m from the deadline-day sales of Marouane Fellaini and Victor Anichebe.
And Martinez believes he will be given access to the extra funds as he aims to bring in more fresh faces in the New Year amid fears Manchester United could return with a renewed bid for Leighton Baines.
“We’re in the position where we’ve got a bit of money to try to improve the squad for the next window and we’re going to do that from window to window,” said the Spaniard.
“We have to because I’m sure next time the question will be ‘who we are going to lose now’, so improving the squad goes without saying.
“We have got a little bit of money and will always carry on trying to identify targets that can help the group. That will never stop and it will be the same in the window coming.”
Martinez will use the coming months to run the rule over his squad before finalising any targets in January.
“It would be daft from our point of view not to try to help the team that we have,” said the Goodison manager.
“Of course we have a very strong team but you always need to be prepared to help the players that we have and use every window to our advantage.
“Over the next three or four months I’ll have a clear idea. At the moment on paper we’re very strong in every area but football doesn’t work like that.
“Players have moments of form, injuries, certain partnerships that allow you to have that information for the next window.”
