Jagielka wants Everton summer signings

Phil Jagielka has said he wants Everton to bring in new faces over the summer and make another assault on qualifying for the Champions League, Sky Sports has reported.

Saturday’s defeat to Manchester City ended Everton’s chances of overtaking Arsenal in fourth place, leaving Roberto Martinez’s side four points behind the Gunners with only a game to play. Arsenal duly won their match at home to West Bromwich Albion on Sunday to go seven points clear.

But Jagielka feels Everton aren’t far off a successful tilt at the Premier League’s top four, adding that it will take some smart transfer business to get there next year. “I've seen enough to suggest we could challenge for top four again next season,” he said.

“It's the same again, it's the whole question of how we do in the transfer market, in terms of keeping hold of our players and bringing in a few,” the centre-back continued. “We had a good summer transfer window last year with the loan signings and it's important the manager is just as active before the start of the season to keep the buzz going.

“I think with the squad we've got, we wouldn't accept performing well in one competition and being disastrous in the other one. That's the type of lads we are. And with the right people coming in over the summer, and a bit more depth to the squad, it's an exciting time for us.”

Martinez made a number of signings in his first summer as Everton boss, adding Antolin Alcaraz, Arouna Kone, Joel Robles and James McCarthy from former club Wigan Athletic. He also picked up Gerard Deulofeu, Gareth Barry and Romelu Lukaku on loan from Barcelona, Manchester City and Chelsea respectively.
