Everton are gearing up for a pivotal summer on and off the pitch.

After narrowly avoiding relegation last season, Frank Lampard’s side enter the transfer market with a real need to strengthen as they seek to avoid being dragged into a basement battle again next season.

Richarlison is one of many players who could raise funds this summer

Unfortunately, with the club under significant financial pressure, the Toffees may have to offload some key players in order to make room for new additions.

Stars such as Andre Gomes, Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin have all been heavily linked with a move, which means additions will be needed.

So who could head to Goodison Park this summer? talkSPORT.com takes a look at what Everton could look like next term.

Jordan Pickford would have been certain to move on had the Toffees been relegated.

Luckily for the supporters, he looks likely to stay put and will be more important than ever if they are to avoid last term struggles.

In defence, Seamus Coleman looks to have a huge role to play next season as they prepare for a new era – especially if Lampard keeps a back-three.

Pickford is a hugely influential part of Lampard’s plans

His best days may be behind him, but Coleman is exactly the kind of character Lampard will need in his team.

Michael Keane would be on his side and hope to play the next term and with better players around him, the hope will be that he has a little more protection on his side.

James Tarkowski also looks set to line up at the heart of Everton’s defence.

Set to arrive on a free transfer from Burnley, he is exactly the sort of signing the Toffees will be looking for given their cash flow restrictions and the likely exit of Yerry Mina.

Tarkowski will be Everton’s first signing this summer

A Rangers signing in January, Nathan Patterson is someone with a big future in his hands.

This is the campaign where he hopes to carve out a place alongside Lampard and it could be the key to filling a problematic position at right-back.

While Vitaliy Mykolenko is the current man on the left flank, Everton have been linked with a move for Owen Wijndal.

The 22-year-old from AZ Alkmaar would be a great option to slot into the left flank and compete with the Ukrainian.

Moving into midfield, Harry Winks is a player who could line up in the Everton blue.

With the signing of Yves Bissouma by Tottenham, Winks is now a player surplus to requirements in North London.

If the Toffees were able to complete a move he would undoubtedly be a real hit with his ease on the ball likely to be a big hit under Lampard.

Another transfer target is Conor Gallagher, someone Lampard knows very well from his time at Chelsea.

Gallagher is well known to Lampard after their spell at Chelsea

The midfielder has made leaps and bounds in the last 12 or so months on a spectacular loan spell with Crystal Palace, and there’s no doubt the England international would add plenty of goals and assists to the squad.

In the offensive third, Anthony Gordon hopes to keep his place in the team.

The 21-year-old was one of Everton’s few bright lights last season after earning a place in the starting XI.

While Richarlison looks likely to move on, Everton will be desperate to add quality to their forward line.

Pulisic could be a potential target after falling out of favor at Stamford Bridge

Christian Pulisic is a man who has been linked after struggling for playing time with Chelsea, and if a deal can be reached it would no doubt be a major blow to either flank.

In attack, Everton could need a new number nine with Dominic Calvert-Lewin continuing to be linked with a move away.

Armando Broja showed his quality during a relatively successful loan spell with Southampton last season, but with the striker looking for a more stable home to excel in, a move to Goodison could be perfect as the Toffees are looking to build their attack around young, dynamic forwards.
