It's really hard to know what kind of position Everton will be in come the start of next season.
So many question marks hang over the club, ranging from whether or not David Moyes will choose to extend his current deal and stay on, to whether or not they'll be able to qualify for Europe.
Looking ahead to next season, it's difficult to predict with any certainty what the situation will be like, but regardless, there can be little doubt that Everton need to freshen things up a bit if they're to remain competitive in the EPL.
The current squad has been stretched thin, and although they do seem to have options, there are areas of the team which are crying out to be strengthened.
Here are five young players who Everton should be doing everything they can to sign once the transfer window opens again in the summer, if they really want to challenge at the top end of England's top flight.
We'll rank the players not just on their ability, but on what they might bring to this Everton side, and based on positions they ought to be prioritising.
