Everton could move for a new central midfielder in the January transfer window, sources have told Football Insider.
It is believed that an addition in the middle of the park could be a priority for the Merseysiders – who have unexpectedly moved Abdoulaye Doucoure into a more advanced, number 10 role in the 2023-24 campaign.
Doucoure has thrived in his new role, notching four goals and one assist across 15 appearances in all competitions.
But his move has left Everton short in central midfield and Sean Dyche is keen to put that right in the transfer market – either in January or next summer.
Also weighing on the Toffees is a potential exit for Amadou Onana, who is one of the most saleable assets at Goodison Park and a target for elite Premier League sides.
Central midfield is not the only priority identified by Dyche ahead of the new year.
