Everton ready to hand Koeman £50MILLION transfer war chest

Date Posted,December 23, 2016

Everton are ready to back boss Ronald Koeman with a £50million war chest.

The Dutchman wants Napoli striker Manolo Gabbiadini as well as Manchester United duo Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay after telling the Toffees’ major-shareholder Farhad Moshiri that his squad needs an overhaul.

Everton have slipped into midtable following a promising start to Koeman’s reign and he has warned that he will need at least three new recruits in the January transfer window.

A summer bid for Gabbiadini, 25, was rejected by Serie A side Napoli, but the Blues have been given fresh encouragement that he is now available for £18m.

Koeman wants Gabbiadini to take some of the strain off Romelu Lukaku, who has scored nine of the Toffees’

21 Premier League goals this season.

Everton are also confident of doing business with United for midfield enforcer Schneiderlin and winger Depay.

Both players have been told they can leave Old Trafford by Jose Mourinho.

And while United will want to recoup most of the £24m they paid Southampton for Schneiderlin 18 months ago, Depay is available for just £15m after a disastrous time in Manchester.

Koeman is desperate to add both power and pace to his squad and needs Depay after losing Yannick Bolasie for the season with a knee injury.
