Roberto Martinez will have money to spend when the transfer window reopens in January, ESPN understands.
The Toffee’s were one on just three Premier League sides to have ended the summer in profit, having sanctioned the deadline day sales of Marouane Fellaini and Victor Anichebe.
They managed to hold on to defender Leighton Baines, and Martinez expects further bids for his star player, while he is aware that he needs to bring in new faces if the club are to maintain their good start to the season.
The Merseyside club are the only side in the English top flight with an unbeaten league record so far this season, with Saturday’s come from behind victory against West Ham United seeing them climb to sixth place.
The club have achieved five top-six finishes in the last ten Premier League seasons, and are priced at 5/2 to achieve that feat this time around.
