Everton transfer news amid links with former Real Madrid playmaker Isco and ex-West Ham United and Swansea City striker Andre Ayew.

Sean Dyche has revealed that Everton are looking at the free agent market to bolster their attacking options.

The Toffees failed to make a single signing in the January transfer window. That’s despite sitting 19th and two points adrift of safety - having scored just 15 goals in 20 matches.

To compound Everton’s precarious position, Anthony Gordon was sold to Newcastle United for £40 million but those funds were not reinvested.

Everton still can add to their squad by signings players who are unattached to clubs. They have been linked with former West Ham and Swansea striker Andre Ayew and ex-Real Madrid playmaker Isco.

But if Dyche does make a move for a free agent, they have to be able to make an impact pretty quickly.

The newly-appointed Everton manager, who takes charge of his first game against Arsenal on Saturday, said at his pre-match press conference: “Sometimes those players are there for a reason. You do get a bit of gold sometimes.

“We’re looking at the market, of course we’re aware of the players who are out there but we’ve got to bring players who will affect things.

“There is a list of players we’ll be going through. Do they fit, can they affect things pretty quickly.”
