With Everton’s recent run of good form in the Premier League, the club will be gearing up for next season with a keen eye on the talent at their disposal.
While reports have suggested that the Toffees will likely look to make wholesale change once the summer transfer window opens, with owner Farhad Moshiri set to back Marco Silva in the market, the club will also be considered what talent they already have in their ranks.
Along with first-team players, the Blues will likely be looking into their plethora of young players currently out on loan, to see who could feature next campaign.
But which of these players could we expect to play next season?
Holgate will certainly be expected to feature for the first-team next season, with Marco Silva having previously stated on record how the young centre-back is a part of his long-term plans.
With the 22-year old having impressed with West Brom since signing in January, while Yerry Mina has struggled for Everton, the former Barnsley man will likely be in contention for a starting berth.
Sandro’s future on Merseyside looks bleak. During two loan spells in his native Spain for Sevilla and Real Sociedad, the 23-year old has failed to score a single goal in league competition.
It looks likely that Sandro will remain in Spain, but if he does come back, he can’t expect much more than a squad rotation role.
The young United States international has often looked like a promising star, but his position among Everton’s young ranks is uncertain.
With Leighton Baines well in his twilight years at Everton, a new understudy will be needed for first-choice Lucas Digne.
Whether that man will be Robinson is currently unclear, but the club will definitely be keeping an eye on his progress.
Another man to be name checked by Marco Silva, Joe Williams hasn’t really been considered an immediate option for the Blues.
Where he features down the line, I don’t know, but given that the manager is a fan, who knows where his future ties in.
Vlasic’s Everton future is uncertain, and not because he is wanted at Goodison Park. Such a success has the Croatian been with CSKA Moscow this season, that both club and player want a permanent stay in the Russian capital.
I’m confident that if he returns to Everton this summer, he will be a key player next campaign.
The Nigerian starlet has impressed on loan with Galatasaray this season, and providing a work permit gets sorted out this summer, he should be lining up for Everton next season.
Having played in the Champions League for two clubs, both loan clubs, since signing for Everton as a highly rated forward, Toffees fans will be itching to see what he can do in the Premier League.
With Theo Walcott’s future uncertain too, it seems natural than Onyekuru slots straight in.
Dowell’s future is perhaps the most difficult to predict. Considered a future star, Dowell returned from last season’s successful loan spell with Nottingham Forest and failed to make any impact at Everton.
Now with Sheffield United, who are closing in on promotion to the Premier League, it seems likely that the 21-year old will spend another season on loan next year. However he could remain on Merseyside too, I’m just not sure.
Beni will get another loan spell.
Having impressed in Everton’s first team last season, the young midfielder’s season has been fraught with injury. Having joined Wigan in January, Beni has only made one appearance for the Latics.
Still held in high regard on Merseyside, he will get another chance to impress on loan next season.
