Everton Splashing The Cash

Everton have been splashing the cash in this transfer window. Just days after completing the £ 28 million club record signing of Romelu Lukaku, Roberto Martinez has been Bosnian international Muhamed Besic come to the club as well. Besic comes from the back of an impressive World Cup 2014 with the Bosnian national team despite the fact that they failed to qualify for the knockout stages. Besic came up against the likes of Messi and Angel di Maria at the World Cup. He performed exceptionally well against these two superstars.

Besic spoke about the joy of keeping Lionel Messi and Angel di Maria quiet and he says that he is ready to apply the skills in the Premier league as well. Many expected Besic to take a while to settle, but the 21-year-old has been looking extremely promising in the pre-season matches. This has led to price from manager Martinez, who says that the £ 4 million signing is the complete footballer he has seen in a long time. Martinez says that the World Cup provided a lot of insight into the player and it seems that he was correct in making the judgement.

Everton finished fifth in the league last season and they are expected to put together a major challenge for a top four place.

“For a player to feel at home so quickly is incredible. It shows you his confidence in himself, his quality and the understanding of the players around him. He has looked like a player who had been at Everton for three years. That’s what I saw at the World Cup – someone who’s not fazed by anything. It doesn’t matter if he needs to man-mark Lionel Messi or he needs to get on the ball and make you play,” said Martinez after the 1-1 draw with Porto.
