Everton to keep one eye on the transfer market

Many people had thought that Everton's summer spending was over.

Roberto Martinez walked through the door on July 1st and within a whirlwind couple of weeks he had signed up a whole new backroom team, with the majority of his team following him over from Wigan.

Then he signed Wigan duo Arouna Kone for a reported 6million and Antolin Alcaraz on a free transfer.

Then came goalkeeper Joel Robles from Athletico Madrid for an undisclosed fee having spent the end of last season on loan at Wigan.

Then Barcelona loan starlet Gerard Deulofeu arrived on loan.

Speculation in the British press continues to link Everton with a whole host of players, but ever since that initial rush Everton have been quiet in the transfer market.

Has business been concluded ahead of the summer? No would be the answer from Martinez, but it will now be a considered approach without signing players for the sake of bolstering the squad.

"There are different ways of bringing players in without spending huge amounts of money. I will always make sure that it`s not a case of getting drawn into the transfer window fever and trying to bring in players just for the sake of it. Martinez told The Echo.

He continued: "It`ll be trying to find the right players, with the right personalities who can perform for Everton, So there are always decisions you need to make in terms of the squad, and we`ll always keep an eye open.

"If we find the specific individual who can help the group we`ve got, I will never say no. At the moment all I`m concerned about is the group and making sure we`re fit and prepared for Norwich on Saturday."
