Potential Everton Transfers that Could Happen this Summer

And breathe. The 2018-19 Premier League Season is over, Everton finished a respectable 8th and Liverpool didn’t win the league.

One positive has been the impressive performances of a number of summer signings last year, such as Richarlison, Lucas Digne – who is hotly tipped to be named Everton’s player of the season – and Bernard.

Nevertheless, as the transfer market gears up to go again, we thought we’d take a closer look at a few Everton transfers that could happen this summer.

Kieran Trippier – Tottenham Hotspur

An integral member of England’s World Cup squad in the summer, and Spurs’ team for the past two seasons, Kieran Trippier could be on the move next month. Recently linked with Italian giants Napoli, Mauricio Pochettino may look to move Trippier on before his performances start to decline.

Everton however, who are on the look out for a right back themselves, could do a lot worse than a player who has amassed over one hundred appearances in the Premier League.

Other potential Everton transfers in this position include Celtic’s Kieran Tierney and Sassuolo’s Pol Lirola.

Kurt Zouma – Chelsea

The 24-year-old Frenchman has caught the eye on loan at Everton this season – and Marco Silva seems desperate to sign Zouma on a permanent basis this summer.

However, as Chelsea can’t sign any players for the next two transfer windows, Silva may struggle to retain one of Everton’s best players this season.

Andre Gomes – Barcelona

Yet another transfer saga that is set to rumble on this summer is Everton’s move for Barcelona’s Andre Gomes, who has shone on loan at Goodison Park this season.

Everton want to sign Gomes on a permanent deal from the Catalan club this summer but face competition from a host of teams across Europe, yet Spurs seem to pose the biggest threat.

Everton’s manager has urged the club to do ‘everything they can’ to persuade Gomes to stay on Merseyside, however their everything may not be enough.

David Neres – Ajax

The 22-year-old Ajax man has set the Champions League alight this year and is among a host of players in this talented team who are expected to make the move to the Premier League this summer.

Paris Saint-Germain, Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool are keen on securing Neres’ signature, however, Everton are somehow favourites to sign him.

Alternative Everton transfers in midfield include Chelsea’s Danny Drinkwater and Porto’s Yacine Brahimi.

Aleksandar Mitrovic – Fulham


Regardless of Fulham’s struggles this season, Aleksandar Mitrovic has had a good season nevertheless. The 24-year-old Serbian international has scored eleven goals for a Fulham side that could not escape relegation.

A move to a potential top six club next season could now be on the cards – and Everton may see the talismanic marksman as the answer to their centre-forward problems.

Plus, Everton have a habit of signing relegated centre-forwards, namely Arouna Kone and Andy Johnson respectively. Nevertheless, Mitrovic would need to convert those talismanic performances into goal laden games.

Che Adams – Birmingham City

This transfer is seemingly inevitable as Che Adams’ middle name is ‘Everton.’ According to reports, Everton are extremely keen on the teen sensation who has scored an astonishing twenty-two goals this season.

Fortunately for Everton – and unfortunately for Birmingham, a substantial reparation from the EFL has made it even more likely that Adams won’t be at the club come August.

If Marco Silva can win the race for the teenage superstar, then perhaps Che Adams could plug the Lukaku shaped hole in Everton’s front line.

Other Everton transfers in this position include Roma’s Edin Dzeko, Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi and Lyon’s Nabil Fekir.
