Rafa Benitez reveals Everton’s transfer plans, including an intriguing hint regarding “ambitious” signings.
Everton’s new manager has urged the club to be more aggressive in the transfer market.
As he prepares for his first season as Everton manager, Rafa Benitez has called on the club to be “ambitious” in the transfer market. Some players are expected to leave, according to the Spaniard, in order to make room for him to develop his squad.
The choice of Rafa Benitez as Carlo Ancelotti’s successor at Goodison Park is both exhilarating and contentious.
Due to the 61-year-previous old’s success with Liverpool, many Everton fans have expressed their discontent with the move.
After a Merseyside derby in 2007, Benitez referred to Everton as a “little club,” yet he takes the hot seat with the hope that time will heal.
The Toffees haven’t done much business in the summer transfer window yet, but he recently spoke out on the club’s business.
Benitez revealed his transfer objectives, stating that Everton must demonstrate desire while considering Financial Fair Play.
It’s possible that he’s hinting that he’d like the club to back him financially in his first summer as manager, something he didn’t get at Newcastle United.
“It depends a lot on the financial position because Financial Fair Play is in place,” he explained. You must adhere to these guidelines, but we must bring everything we require.
“We need to be ambitious, but we also need to be in control of the situation.
“It’s possible that some players will have to depart. We will have more opportunities to approach other players and improve the group if they leave.”
Benitez lauded Dominic Calvert-Lewin during Everton’s pre-season, but emphasized that he needs better service.
“It is clear that we have a fantastic centre-forward in Calvert-Lewin,” Benitez said.
“He can score goals and is really good in the air. However, we must offer him with quality crosses and passes.
“We can improve in these regions, and the crosses will come from the wide places. The team will be a little bit better if we can achieve it.
Everton will play Millonairos of Colombia in the Florida Cup later this month, ahead of a possible final against Arsenal or Inter Milan.
Before the competitive season begins, the Toffees head at Old Trafford to face Manchester United.
On Saturday, August 14, Benitez’s reign begins with a home match against Southampton.
