Steve Walsh is bringing some very talented young players to Everton with Sheffield United’s David Brooks reportedly next in line.
The future is bright at Everton and not just because majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri funded the biggest summer spend in the club’s history.
While The Toffees paid huge sums on established talent like Michael Keane, Jordan Pickford and club-record signing Gylfi Sigurdsson, director of football Steve Walsh has been working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure the next generation is even more talented than the current crop.
Walsh’s remit is understood to revolve around identifying some of Europe’s top talent and bringing them to Goodison Park (Liverpool Echo) and, so far, he appears to have done his job well.
The midfielder would not be the first highly-rated youngster to move to Goodison Park since Walsh was appointed last summer. The likes of Henry Onyekuru, Nikola Vlasic and Ademola Lookman may have cost a pretty penny but there are other, more under-the-radar additions that also offer an exciting glimpse at Everton’s future plans.
