Last season Nikica Jelavić was arguably one of the best signings in the whole of the Premier League after he hit the ground running following his move from Rangers to Everton.
David Moyes is hopeful that lightening can strike twice with the signing of the Croatians former Rangers team-mate Steven Naismith.
The signing might have proved complicated due to Rangers financial problems, but the Scottish striker is now a fully fledged Evertonian and after putting his injury problems behind him he's beginning to show his potential to be this seasons signing of the year.
"My appetite has been there since the day I signed," Naismith told evertontv.
He added: "I am coming to play in the best league in the world and with me coming back from injury and playing again I have probably enjoyed pre-season more than most players might. Hopefully I can do enough to get in the starting XI."
His performance during Hibbo's testimonial against Greek side AEK Athens certainly showed what he is capable of, he managed to score a half an hour hat-trick during the 4-1 win and although the game will obviously be remembered for the 'other' Everton goal, his obvious quality is just another reason for Evertonians feeling strangely optimistic ahead of the new season.
He concluded: "I want to show everyone what I am capable of and getting in the box and scoring goals is part of my game. It`s nice to get a few early to help me settle in."
