Three players Everton should attempt to sign this summer

Wednesday 7th June 2017
Everton Football Club is  a team on the cusp of great change. In the space of one summer,  they're set to lose their two best players and their most successful manager of recent times.

For a team that just finished 7th in the Premier League, this summer doesn't look too favourable for the Toffees. For Bill Kenwright to buck the potential downward spiral and capitalise on his club's successful campaign, there is now a certain calibre of player they should be aiming for in the transfer window.

Here are three players Everton should attempt to sign in the summer.

Marek Hamsik

Let's never underestimate the pulling power of the Premier League. For many a footballer around the world, the BPL is the epitome of world football. It's where the most money is and it's where the most eyes are watching. That's why a player like Marek Hamšík can swap finishing 3rd in Serie A and Champions League football for a tiny 40,000 stadium in Liverpool.

With Ross Barkley seemingly refusing to sign a new contract, Everton is in need of a direct attacking midfielder. Marek Hamšík is not only a suitable replacement for Ross Barkley, he's an upgrade. The 29-year old is an underrated player that excels at delivering through balls, attempting long shots and running with the ball. His decision-making is also considerably better than Ross Barkley's as his movement facilitates others.

Marek Hamsik is currently on £34,000-a-week at the Stadio San Paolo, a wage Kenwright could easily double based on the revenue Everton received from TV rights last season.

Joe Hart

With his Manchester City career seemingly in the balance, Joe Hart is looking for new horizons, horizons which Everton could provide him. Joe Hart is a keeper of pedigree that deserves Premier League football. The Toffees would also be able to provide the 30-year old with European football.

Last season Joe Hart played 36 Serie A games where he only kept five clean sheets. All in all, he had a poor campaign at Torino, but his qualities as a keeper haven't downgraded. His commanding presence, title-winning experience and team player attitude would lead this young crop of Everton players into Champions League qualification.

Javier Hernandez

I don't know if you agree, but I genuinely feel Javier Hernández is one of the most underrated players in the world. Everywhere he's gone, the Mexican has delivered. In 49 Premier League starts, Hernández scored 37 goals for Manchester United. At Real Madrid, he scored seven in seven starts, now in the Bundesliga, he's scored 28 in 45 starts.

The man is a proven goalscorer in three different leagues in three different countries. He's a seasoned European goalscorer that would turn Everton into a truly dangerous proposition. With service being supplied by the returning Gerard Deulofeu and Yannick Bolasie, Hernandez's clinical nature would be fed all season long.

Everton needs a forward to replace the impact of the outgoing Romelu Lukaku. With the Belgian set to leave for a fee north of £60m, the Toffees would have more than enough to acquire the services of a better striker in Javier Hernández.

Arsenal fan with ample amounts of passion for both Cristiano Ronaldo & Real Madrid. I'm one of those bandwagonist hipster fans that will claim to know everything about football, but only watches the El Clasico outside of the Premier League. Forgive me, I'm trying. Oh yeah, #WengerOut.
