Roberto Martinez wants to bring in three new forwards to bolster Everton’s attack ahead of next season.

The Toffees have already signed midfielder Gareth Barry on a permanent deal, while Romelu Lukaku has been touted as a target after his successful loan spell at Goodison Park last term.

We are confident that we will be in a good position to strengthen our squad before the end of this window

And the Spaniard has revealed that he is looking to add strength to his attack following Everton’s qualification for the Europa League.

“We want to bring in three attacking players,” Martinez told the Liverpool Echo. “We feel that we are fine in terms of goalkeeper and defence, but we definitely want one midfielder and three attackers.”

“You have to plan for the summer well in advance, and we are very happy with the work that we have put in since January in preparing for this summer.

“We’ve worked hard to identify the type of players that we want, and we are confident that we will be in a good position to strengthen our squad before the end of this window.”
