With just four games remaining in the Premier League, and with Europa League qualification still uncertain, Everton will be eyeing up potential transfer targets in the summer.

Director of football Marcel Brands spoke earlier this month, confirming that the club have already drawn up their key targets for when the transfer window reopens.

As the Liverpool Echo reported in early April, Brands said:

Now, on April 2, the players are already decided. We’ve done a lot of work on that and let’s see what is possible and what we can do but the positions and names are ready.

With that in mind, we’ve been wondering what exactly those positions are. 

With just a handful of games to go, we’ve looked at which specific areas Everton could do with strengthening, and what the club need to accomplish in the summer window to ensure the squad begin next season in the strongest possible position.
