The impact that Marcel Brands and Marco Silva have had on Everton after just one (abbreviated) window and just over a dozen matches has been impressive.

Their boardroom efforts have paid dividends on the pitch, and Silva has gotten the best out of the talent they were able to recruit.

Lucas Digne, Bernard, Richarlison, Yerry Mina, and Andre Gomes have all been immediate upgrades at their respective positions and have changed the feeling around Goodison.

Now, it looks like Brand and Silva are set to continue their overhaul of the rosters.

According to Paul Joyce in the Times Morgan Schneiderlin and Oumar Niasse are two of the prime candidates to leave in January.

As well as a deal for Gomes, Marco Silva, the Everton manager, knows he needs a proven striker to propel his side to the next level. The likes of Morgan Schneiderlin and Oumar Niasse could be sold in January as the careful overhaul of Everton’s squad continues.

This should come as no great surprise as both Niasse and Schneiderlin have struggled to find playing time, even failing to find the matchday squad on regular occasions.

With the signing of Andre Gomes a priority, and an expense, Brands and Silva will be hoping to use the profits from the sale of the duo to fund the purchase of the Barcelona midfielder.

If the Toffees can unload the pair for a decent profit it will be one more step towards the total reformation of a team that was in desperate need of it.
