Everton FC new player in and out 2017-18. Here is the Everton FC Squad 2017-18. The Summer transfer window 2017 is now closed and we have the full Everton FC transfer lists and transfer wages.
Everton’s 2016/17 season was pretty good. It was their first season under new manager Ronald Koeman and they got some very good results. They did not trouble the top 6 too much, but finished a comfortable 7th, which was a significant improvement to 2015/16 under Roberto Martinez.
Their position was helped by having great players such as Romelu Lukaku. However, they have now lost their main man to Jose Mourinho and Manchester United.
The addition of lots of players to cover that lost should help them cope, but it will be interesting to see how they adapt to the loss of Lukaku in the season to come. Remember also that their 7th placed finish means that they will have Europa League football this season, which means more games for the Toffees.
Overall, despite the loss of Lukaku, we think that Everton’s squad has overall improved when compared with last season. Their biggest signing has been the free addition of their own former striker, Wayne Rooney. It’s been 13 years since the England international last wore an Everton shirt competitively. He left Goodison Park for Manchester United for £25.6million and had a very successful career there. However, he is now 31 and is not getting the same game time at United. Everton can give him the game time he wants while also getting a player for themselves. It was a great move for both parties.
The Everton FC line up 2017/18 season will consist of these players. Here is how Everton FC will line up for the 2017/18 season.
These are the goalkeepers who will be in the Everton squad for the 2017/18 season. They were in the hunt for a new goalkeeper this summer and they targeted Jordan Pickford, who impressed for Sunderland last season. Since Sunderland were relegated, Everton found it relatively easy to sign the goalkeeper for £30million. He is likely to be first choice next season, ahead of Joel Robles and Martin Stekelenburg, who both had disappointing seasons in an Everton shirt last year.
Everton’s defence wasn’t too bad this season but they have still made attempts to improve it ahead of the new season. They have signed highly sought-after centre-back Michael Keane from Burnley. The young defender is highly rated and was also wanted by Liverpool and Manchester United. Their other star defenders appear to be staying at Goodison. Seamus Coleman will miss the start of the season having broken his leg in March playing for Ireland. He shouldn’t miss too much of the season but the nasty injury is keeping him on the sidelines for now.
These are the Everton FC midfielders for the 2017/18 season. Some of their players had very good seasons last season and it’s good for the club that none of them have left. Ross Barkley came close to joining Chelsea on deadline day, but he opted to stay at Goodison Park until he returns from injury at least. They have made new signings in the midfield area, including Davy Klaaassen from Ajax. He is an attacking midfielder for both club and his country Holland. He was signed for a big fee of £23.7million and will wear the number 20 shirt this season for the Toffees.
This is where Everton have made most of their signings so far in this window. After the loss of Lukaku it was important for them to try and replace him as effectively as possible. They signed Wayne Rooney (as previously mentioned) for free and Sandro Ramirez from Malaga for £8.5million. Hopefully for the Toffees these players can provide at least some of the goals that Lukaku provided for the club last season. If they do, Everton could be on for another successful season.
Everton have a very tough beginning to the season. They play a lot of difficult teams. However, if they get a few wins from their opening fixtures, they can use that to build on the rest of their season.
Their first 6 fixtures are as follows:
As you can see, 4 of those 6 opening games are very tough. Everton will have to be at their best to get anything from those games. However, their current squad is starting to look good enough to compete with them. They should be aiming to get at least 12 points from those opening 6 games.
