Everton are a club currently in the middle of transation, having dismissed Sam Allardyce and replaced him with ex-Watford boss Marco Silva.
The Blues are expected to do more business in the transfer window after last year’s efforts proved to be lukewarm, with Silva keen to rebuild the club and improve on their recent eighth-place finish.
While club veteran Wayne Rooney is expected to make a switch to MLS side D.C. United during the window, it is an opportunity for Everton to reinvest in younger, fresher talent, as well as bringing in players that will complement the likes of established stars Cenk Tosun and Theo Walcott, who still have something to prove at Goodison Park.
Goal brings you your complete guide to Everton’s 2018 pre-season tour as well as their complete 2018-19 Premier League schedule with dates, venues and all you need to know about the preparations for the new season.
