With chairman Bill Kenwright currently strapped for cash, don't expect Everton to be exceptionally busy during the upcoming January 2012 transfer window. With the Toffees unable to contract players long term, expect most if not all of their incoming moves to be either loan deals or free signings.
That being said, manager David Moyes should still be on the lookout for new (and old) players who can help remedy Everton's lack of finishing quality.
The People's Club created more scoring chances than Manchester United last weekend, out-shooting the Red Devils 14-5 yet coming away with zero goals. Everton showed a scoring touch recently against Fulham, beating the Cottagers 3-1, but they have yet to do so against the Premiership’s top sides.
With no money and little hope for Europe, here are five deals the Toffee head man should at least try in January.
