The two most likely Everton transfers after Anwar El Ghazi move

Everton have been quick to make new signings this month.

The Toffees have so far confirmed three new signings since the transfer window opened at the start of the month.

January 1 saw the arrival of Vitalii Mykolenko from Dynamo Kiev for £17 million, before Everton signed Rangers defender Nathan Patterson in a £16 million deal three days later.

Following the departure of left-back Lucas Digne to Aston Villa, the Merseyside club saw winger Anwar El Ghazi arrive on loan.

As one of the most active Premier League clubs so far this month, Everton have since been linked with a number of other players.

Who have Everton been linked with?

Rafa Benitez has hinted at the possibility of more arrivals at Goodison Park in his press conference, saying: “We are always hoping to strengthen the squad, we will try and do the best for us.

“We are open minded and if we can bring anyone else who can help the team we are happy to do that.”

According to Sport Witness, Everton have made contact with Aleksandr Golovin’s agent over a potential move for the Monaco midfielder.

West Ham are also interested in the Russian, with the French club demanding between €40-50 million for their key man.

Meanwhile, the Toffees have also been linked with Manchester United outcast Donny van de Beek.

The Dutchman has struggled for game time since his arrival at Old Trafford in 2020.

Elsewhere, Daily Mail have claimed that Benitez is eyeing a loan swoop for former Toffees star Ross Barkley.

The midfielder has only made five league appearances this season.
