Everton to sanction big-name sale to fund signings wanted by Sean Dyche, Amadou Onana transfer on the cards

Everton could sanction a “big-name sale” in order to fund the signings Sean Dyche wants at Goodison Park in the summer, according to iNews.

The news outlet reported on Monday (29 May) that even if MSP Sports Capital buy into the Merseyside club, transfer business will be “shrewd” in the summer with Sean Dyche looking to “overhaul” the squad he inherited in January.

It is understood that while Jordan Pickford has been linked with a move away, Everton intend to keep him.

Amadou Onana is named as someone who could be sold as iNews claims Everton “may listen if there are sizeable offers” for the Belgian, who’s wanted by Chelsea and Newcastle.

Sacrificial lamb

In an ideal world, we’d want to keep Onana.

The 21-year-old Belgium international has shown a lot of promise at Goodison Park this season while he also did well at his former club Lille last term,

He’s only young so he has a lot of room to improve but Everton’s financial situation cannot be ignored and unfortunately, sacrificing players like him for the greater good is warranted.

Dyche has every right to want to overhaul this squad.

All you need to do is look at the starting line-up he named against Bournemouth as he didn’t have a single full-back on the pitch, nor a recognised striker.

They’re the two main areas that need adding to this summer. We wouldn’t be against him signing as many as three new strikers to supplement the ever-injured Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who may as well be sold if anyone is dumb enough to buy the Goodison crock.
