It’s been a quieter-than-expected transfer deadline day at Goodison Park so far.

Despite several players being linked with moves to Everton, no fresh faces have arrived.

However, Sky Bet have priced up names who could join the Blues before tonight’s 23.00 BST cut-off point.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles - 1/3

The five-cap England international clearly wants to join Everton after lashing out at Arsenal on social media for blocking his move.

Maitland-Niles is reportedly due to hold talks with Gunners boss Mikel Arteta today about his future.


He would provide competition and cover for Seamus Coleman at right-back and is also capable of featuring in central midfield.

Dwight McNeil - 4/1

The Burnley winger has been linked with a switch to Merseyside earlier this summer.

Clarets boss Sean Dyche recently admitted it would take a significant bid for them to sell the 21-year-old.

Everton are hoping to add another winger to their ranks.


Ross Barkley - 5/1

It would be interesting how Evertonian would greet such a return for the academy product.

Barkley appears surplus to requirements at Chelsea and he didn’t exactly rip up trees during his loan spell at Aston Villa last season.

The Blues are likely favourites because he is a former player.

Allan Saint-Maximin - 6/1

This would be a signing that many fans would likely welcome.

The Newcastle forward was linked with a £50 million move to Goodison Park earlier this summer.

However, that sort of figure is well out of Everton’s price range at this currentl moment.

Max Aarons - 10/1

Everton are certainly in the market for a right-back.

Aarons would be a decent option but it’s unlikely Norwich would want to sell at this late stage.


The 21-year-old wouldn’t be cheap, either.

Wilfried Zaha - 11/1

This must be the first summer in a while that Crystal Palace’s talisman hasn’t been linked with a switch to Everton.

Zaha is looking likely to stay at Selhurst Park even despite the Blues’ search for a wide man.
