Frank Lampard is planning a major overhaul this summer and one of his priorities is to build a robust Everton squad with better fitness. Injuries were one of the prime reasons why the Toffees were inconsistent in results which ultimately saw them escape relegation by the skin of their teeth.

Everton and Lampard will be hoping to strengthen a number of positions this summer but given the precarious financial situation, the Toffees may be forced to sell in order to make signings. Everton should first push to offload players with a terrible fitness record. Ironically, some of them are the highest earners at the club.

The futures of Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin still remains uncertain as the elite teams of Europe could come in any time with mega offers. However, player sales will be key if Everton want to go big in the summer.

Contract expiries of Cenk Tosun, Fabian Delph and Jonjoe Kenny will certainly save some cash in the wage budget. Selling some players who are not producing noteworthy performances will generate cash and also lighten the load on the wage budget.

If certain player sales are made, Everton could end up saving over £15 million in annual salaries and further make money through their sales which can be reinvested.
