Everton set for huge shakeup with transfer overhaul on pitch and big changes at top of crisis-club | The Sun

EVERTON are set for a shakeup with owner Farhad Moshiri reportedly close to landing fresh investment.

The Toffees have been in rapid decline in recent seasons and find themselves 17th in the Premier League table.

Sean Dyche's side are only separated from the relegation zone on goal difference, with the threat of relegation ahead of their final season at Goodison Park a very real one.

Fans have protested against owner Moshiri this season, having witnessed the way their club has fallen since his 2016 arrival.

According to Sky Sports, the Iranian is very much aware of how the supporters feel, and is doing what he can to address the club's problems.

They add that he is close to securing new investment, and that despite the lingering threat of relegation, Everton's new 52,888 capacity Bramley Moore Dock stadium will be fully funded.

Following the new investment, there will be significant changes at the top of the club, with a potential board reshuffle to follow.

While fans will hope to see significant investment in the team, with Moshiri feeling "let down" by recruitment in recent years.

Due to being hamstrung by Financial Fair Play regulations, Everton spent just £1.7million in the summer of 2021, signing Demarai Gray.

They subsequently forked out £29m on Vitaliy Mykolenko and Nathan Patterson in January 2022.

This season, the sales of Richarlison, Moise Kean and Anthony Gordon have helped ease the financial pressures on the club.

Everton have spent £85.5m on the likes of Amadou Onana, Dwight McNeil, Idrissa Gueye, James Garner, Neal Maupay and James Tarkowski, while recouping £135m in sales.

On the Toffees' spending since his sacking, unpopular former boss Rafael Benitez told the Telegraph: "After my time there they have invested a lot of money again and they have the squad to get out of relegation.

"The fans were decisive last year and they can be again this year."

Everton travel to in-form Crystal Palace this weekend before a mid-week Goodison assignment against Newcastle.

They then face relegation rivals Leicester at the King Power and high-flying Brighton at the Amex, ahead of a tricky clash with title-chasing Manchester City at home.

Their last two games see them face Wolves away, before a final day Goodison showdown with Bournemouth.
