Former Everton midfielder Lee Carsley pleads for transfer activity - report

Former Everton midfielder Lee Carsley has urged the club to become active in the transfer market after the club’s pre-season loss to Minnesota United.

The Toffees were beaten 4-0 by the MLS outfit on 21 July, and the result worried many of the Everton faithful regarding their upcoming season.

The lack of transfer activity from the club has begun to make many fans fear for their safety next season as the club look to be approaching another relegation battle as things stand.

Now former Toffee Lee Carsley has decided to take to Twitter to plead for the club to make more signings to strengthen their chances of safety next season.

Carsley said: “Do something.”

More signings needed?

It is clear that if Everton enter the Premier League season with their current squad, their future looks extremely bleak.

So far, the only signing the club has made is securing former Burnley captain James Tarkowski on a free transfer and they are yet to make any other additions to the squad.

After losing Brazilian talisman Richarlison, they are in desperate need of goals and firepower with centre-forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin still not looking like himself.

The now-Tottenham forward, was the only Everton player to score over 10 goals last season, with only two Everton players scoring over five goals last season.

They are also extremely light in midfield, with the club yet to land one of their central-midfield targets with the season starting on 5 August.

Substantial investment is desperately needed from the squad to avoid another season as bleak and negative as last term.
