Everton Boss Kirk Outlines Transfer Plans For Next Season

Willie Kirk expressed his excitement as the Everton boss outlined the Club's plans to strengthen the squad ahead of next season. 

The Blues secured fifth spot in the Women's Super League this season - their best finish since 2013 - but Kirk's ambitions are set on breaking into the top three places and subsequently securing Champions League football

Kirk confirmed several deals were in their final stages and outlined the positive impact the new personnel could have on his squad. 

“The most important part of a football club is the recruitment," Kirk told evertonfc.com. 

“Working with better players every year. Yes, it’s really important to develop your players as well but ultimately you’re always looking to bring better players in.

“That’s what we aim to do and that’s what we’re confident of doing.

“We’re way down the line with a number of them.

“I'm really excited to be bringing some of them to the Club.

“It’s really going to add something to the squad, in terms of that competitive, winning environment.

“Players with a lot of caps for top-10 countries. Players with lots of medals.

“That’s what we need. We need winners in the team because they’ve been through moments like the Chelsea game when they have been on the receiving end.

"They’ve come out through those moments to pick up medals and we need to get that know-how in our squad.”

There has been plenty of positives for Everton to take from the 2020/21 season, including a trip to Wembley for the FA Cup final. 

Kirk stressed the importance of using the campaign as a learning experience and to progress even further next term.

“We just need to make sure we continue learning," Kirk added.
