8 Everton problems that have/have not been solved during transfer window including Dele Alli plan - gallery

The January window was a difficult one for Everton given their financial situation.

Everton's financial issues meant that the January window was always destined to be a quiet one.

The Toffees have been charged with breaching financial fair play and sustainability rules twice this season, which resulted in a points deduction. An appeal is underway but it has been a big blow for the club as spending has been restricted for the time-being.

Despite not bringing any players in, they managed to keep hold of key names which will give them a great chance of staying up but the only market in which they could possibly operate in is the free agent market, but even that seems unlikely.

Therefore, following the end of the January window, we've decided to pick eight problems that were or were not dealt with during the latest transfer period.
