Vinny O’Connor has spoken about the futures of Amadou Onana, Demarai Gray and Jordan Pickford at Everton as a select group of players returned to pre-season on Thursday.

Just like last season, Sean Dyche faces an almighty task to get Everton out of their financial mess and away from relegation battles.

Sky reporter Vinny O’Connor stated that there is ‘interest’ in players like Amadou Onana and Demarai Gray, how they could leave, but it ‘wouldn’t make sense’ to sell Jordan Pickford, as he told Sky Sports News (06/07/23 at 2:20 pm).

It’s pretty clear, Everton have to sell before they can get any sort of fresh legs into the squad via the summer transfer market.

Just how deep the mess is behind-closed-doors, only the powers that be know that, but Dyche will have to scrap in more ways than one.

But this is the news that was dropped by Sky reporter Vinny O’Connor outside Finch Farm on Thursday afternoon.

“There has been interest in players as well,” said O’Connor. “Amadou Onana falls into that category, as does Jordan Pickford. There has been interest in Demarai Gray from Saudi Arabia.

“With regards to potential outgoings, in regards to the players who played a big part in Everton’s first-team squad, like Onana.

“Well, you could see that possibly making sense, if a sizeable bid comes in for him, then he is allowed to go. Then that money is reinvested in the squad. The same goes for someone like Demarai Gray.

“At the same time, if a sizeable bid was to come in for Jordan Pickford. If he were allowed to go, then that doesn’t necessarily make sense when you also consider what happened at Leicester and the problems that they had in getting that replacement for Kasper Schmeichel.”


Dyche key to Everton’s troubles

Has anything really changed and will anything really change during the coming months that will allow Everton to look forward?

It doesn’t seem like there will be that light the fans are looking for, which will be a shame because it’s they who will suffer the most

But amongst everything that is happening and will happen, the key man is Dyche, keep him, trust him and back him, and then the Toffees won’t suffer that dreaded drop that has been hanging above their heads for so long.
