It will be quite something if Everton manage to top last week's sudden surge of transfer activity.
After weeks of whispers, speculation and rumours, in came Arouna Kone, Antolin Alcaraz and Joel Robles on permanent deals, while Barcelona's Gerard Deulofeu joined on a year-long loan.
With no first XI player out of the equation just yet—bar the retiring Phil Neville—the Toffees are clearly in a stronger position than last season, when they managed a prolonged challenge for a Champions League place.
For the next few weeks, the club's greatest priority may be hanging on to what they have, especially in the cases of Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini.
Once again, here is your weekly dose of transfer rumours and stories surrounding Everton. Be sure to check back later in the week for any further developments.
