As the clock ran out on Sky Sports News yesterday, it was a pretty good time to be an Everton fan. A ferociously busy deadline day would bring four new arrivals to bless the squad of new boss Marco Silva.

We’ve evaluated all the business conducted by the Toffees, and given them a transfer window grade.


Everton have signed most of FC Barcelona. Left-back Lucas Digne was the first to arrive, and deadline day brought centre-half Yerry Mina on a permanent deal, and midfielder Andre Gomes on loan. All signings of pedigree, and will stand to make the Merseysiders considerably stronger for the upcoming season.

A £35 million fee was forked out for Watford’s Richarlison, and the signing of free agent Bernard means Everton fans can look forward to watching the Brazilian duo grace Goodison Park very soon.

The pièce de résistance of Everton’s window however may prove to be the loan signing of Kurt Zouma from Chelsea. Despite being unable to keep Stoke up last season, the physical and intelligent centre-back could find a home in the heart of the defence at Goodison.


Wayne Rooney’s Everton return didn’t last long, as the veteran jumped ship and headed to Major League Soccer to join D.C. United. Disastrous signing from a year ago Davy Klaassen was also offered a chance to leave for Werder Bremen, and bowed out after a forgettable season.

There were also loan deals secured for Kevin Mirallas, Ashley Williams, and prodigy Henry Onyekuru.

What more could have been done?

Centre forward may be an area of some concern for Evertonians, with Cenk Tosun the only reliable front-man in the squad. Youngster Dominic Calvert-Lewin may see more playing time, with Oumar Niasse and Sandro Ramirez the other options. A new striker could have gone a long way to capping off a near-perfect Everton transfer window.

Final Grade: B+

Talent added across nearly all areas of the pitch, apart from striker. You’ll struggle to find many transfer windows as well-rounded as Everton’s, though.

Grading Chelsea's transfer window .
Infuriated by Liverpool setting the world record transfer fee paid for a goalkeeper, Chelsea moved to blow serious cash on a new shot-stopper after their trust number one headed out the door. See how we rated Chelsea’s summer transfer window. Arrivals Kepa Arrizabalaga replaces Thibaut Courtois, and not cheaply. £72 million was enough to trigger the release clause in the Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper’s contract, and he makes the trip to London with a great amount of pressure to perform from day one. New boss Maurizio Sarri came from Serie A giants Napoli, and brought defensive midfielder Jorginho with him. The Brazilian’s presence will ease the transition from outgoing manager Antonio Conte’s playing style to Sarri’s, pulling the strings from deep. As part of the deal that sent Courtois to Real Madrid, midfielder Mateo Kovacic travels the other way on a season-long loan. With a high number of midfielders now in his squad, it will be interesting to see how Sarri distributes playing time. Departures Courtois forced his way out of Stamford Bridge in the end, failing to show up after the World Cup. With just one year left on the Belgian’s contract, Chelsea still did well to command £31 million for the colossal gloveman, in addition tot he Kovacic loan. The usual mass Chelsea loan exodus continued true to form, with seven players securing moves in the window. Eden Hazard has not moved yet, although numerous foreign clubs remain interested in signing the winger.
