Everton once again finished their campaign in strong fashion, placing seventh in the Premier League just outside the European spots.
Another season of achieving beyond their means also came with the added reward of finishing above local rivals, Liverpool.
However, the Toffees can still expect to be recruiting from a different pool of players to the Reds this summer, as their neighbours retain considerably greater spending power and greater global cache.
Manager David Moyes is well used to working under such conditions and will already have his eyes on several potential signings whose lack of star value is easily compensated by the value for money they will offer.
Here are five potential signings within Everton’s grasp who could arrive at Goodison Park this summer.
