16 players Everton could target in 2024 who are out of contract including Man Utd & West Ham stars - gallery

Sean Dyche will want to strengthen his squad once again next summer and look to build once again - if they stay up.

Everton's summer business has worked out well so far, with the side looking far more resolute under Sean Dyche.

Six wins in nine has been a strong run of form and has no doubt been their best run for a long time.

But they are now in a relegation battle after it was confirmed Everton have been hit with a hefty points deduction for a breach of Premier League financial rules.

The Toffees were referred to independent commission for an alleged breach of the Premier League’s financial fair play rules. Everton said they would robustly defend their position.

The commission met last month and have now come up with a conclusion - with Everton being slapped with a deduction of 10 points. The Blues will lodge an appeal against the decision.

If they do stay up, we take a look at some free agents next season they could target.

Adding depth in midfield and at the back will no doubt be a target and there are plenty of options to do so.

Therefore, targeting these players who are set to be out of contract next summer is a good place to start, as they could feasibly strengthen their squad for a far lower cost if these players do not agree an extension.
