Changes at the top
Everton are set to reshuffle their hierarchy this summer and the director of football is one that is being looked at but complications have come up.
The Toffees have had a torrid season, with Ronald Koeman having been sacked before Sam Allardyce was brought in to steady the ship.
While he has done that to some extent and secured safety for the Toffees, there are wholesale changes to be made this summer.
That is because the club’s aim will go back to trying to challenge the top six.
While Sam Allardyce is likely to be given the boot, one of the bigger changes this summer could come in the director of football department.
Steve Walsh is currently the DoF at Goodison but a horrendous summer spend has left his job at risk.
Sandro Ramirez and Davy Klaassen have been big failures, while Michael Keane hasn’t set the world alight and the failure to replace Lukaku hasn’t helped his cause.
Working in tandem
That has lead to interest in PSV director of football Marcel Brands who is widely considered as one of the top directors in the game.
Sky Sports even went as far as claiming that a deal was already in place but that is supposedly not the case according to reports today.
Though, the Daily Mail have claimed that the side are looking to create a dream team with Steve Walsh and Marcel Brands working together.
While that sounds pretty strange, they claim that majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri feels the two could work together in tandem.
Whether it will work as expected is yet to be seen, but it’s safe to say that some big changes are coming to Goodison Park.
