Everton may be a club in complete disarray from the outside, but inside they are likely far more well-oiled than they seem

 

 

After all, before their recent points deduction, everything finally seemed to be moving in the right direction, with results mirroring the off-pitch success that Kevin Thelwell had ushered

in.

 

 

Selling off their key assets and replacing them shrewdly saw their net spend reduced significantly, and as such they have made a profit each of the last three seasons.

 

However, that could not be enough for the Premier League, who are reportedly still considering dealing out another deduction.

 

And yet, that has not halted the Toffees’ transfer progress, who have seemingly begun putting together a list ahead of the January transfer window.

Football Transfers are the latest to detail one such name, with Leicester City star Kasey McAteer reportedly garnering interest.

The report states that Everton are ‘considering a move’ for the 22-year-old trickster, who has been shining in the Championship this term.

However, they may face one key difficulty, as the winger reportedly does not want to join a club likely to be relegated despite his desperation to play top-flight football. As such, Sean Dyche will have to guide his side to a much safer spot before tempting the youngster.

How good is Kasey McAteer?

Having come through the Foxes academy, it was a proud moment to see the former AFC Wimbledon loanee make his Premier League debut in 2021.

However, it is only this season that McAteer has truly established himself as a first-team mainstay, having amassed 11 appearances this campaign in the league.

His continued presence in the starting side is likely owed to the ease with which he has taken to senior football, with his four goals certainly helping along the way.

To add another goalscoring winger to his ranks would be useful for Dyche, especially given the work rate that Leicester’s young dynamo has shown.

As well as recording 0.5 key passes per game, McAteer is also managing one tackle and 2.4 ball recoveries, suggesting he would fit right in at Goodison Park should he make the move in the coming window, via Sofascore.

However, he is not the only EFL sensation who Everton are tracking.
