Everton 2022/23: What are squad numbers for next season - what will Ruben Vinagre and Dwight McNeil get?

Official squad numbers have been released ahead of Everton’s upcoming 2022/2023 domestic season.

The start of the 2022/23 Premier League season is just day away.

With the summer transfer window hotting up with huge names such as Erling Haaland, Kalidou Koulibaly and many more making the switch to the UK, the upcoming Premier League season has all the potential to be the most exciting and highest quality yet.

Everton’s local rivals Liverpool have been busy in the window, breaking their club record fee to sign forward Darwin Nunez and seeing fan-favourite Sadio Mane depart to Bayern Munich.

Though as the new Premier League season edges nearer, it has been fairly quiet at Goodison Park with just three players arriving at Everton.

So here is everything you need to know about Everton’s official squad numbers for the 2022/2023 season.

When does Everton’s 2022/2023 season start?

After the Toffees conclude their pre-season preparations, their first competitive game of the new season soon comes around.

Everton will return to action in the Premier League for Frank Lampard’s homecoming when his side host Chelsea.

Hosted at Goodison Park, the game is scheduled to kick off at 5:30 pm on Saturday, 6 August 2022.

Frank Lampard has welcomed the signing of Burnley captain James Tarkowski, with the centre-half joining on a free after his contract at Turf Moor expired at the end of last season.

Ruben Vinagre has been signed on loan from Sporting Lisbon and Dwight McNeil, also from Burnely, has recently joined the fold.

Meanwhile, Everton starman Richarlison departed the club in a bumper £60 million deal to Tottenham Hotspur.

Everton have been linked with various players, such as Chelsea’s Armando Broja and Wolves’ Morgan Gibbs-White, but nothing has come from it at the time of publication.

What numbers will the new signing wear in the 2022/23 season?

James Tarkowski has been confirmed to be wearing the number two shirt for all his Everton games this season.

Official shirt numbers are yet to be made official for either McNeil or Vinagre.
