Everton's summer transfer targets have already been identified, according to manager Roberto Martinez's comments in the Liverpool Echo.

The Blues are reportedly looking to add firepower to their side during the transfer window, although the same newspaper have recently said that a move for QPR forward Charlie Austin is not going to happen.

They are also said to be looking for defensive reinforcements, while a creative number ten would also be towards the top of the list as well. And according to the manager, targets started to be identified as early as January.

"We have got real clarity in who we want," he said.

"That has been work we've developed since January and we are very happy with the options we have."

"More than anything, it is that personality who we think can fit into our football club, cope with the expectations and fit into what we want to build."

Who the manager will target then, remains to be seen, although a move for free agent Tom Cleverley looks almost certain if targets have been followed since January.
