Carlo Ancelotti still has a number of things to cross off on his transfer window wishlist and will be keen to make his moves in the market in time to get any new recruits ready for a new Premier League season.
The Blues need reinforcements in a number of areas and are not short of players being linked with a move to the club.
Here are the latest Everton transfer rumours and how they rate:
Attacking midfielder for Atletico Madrid
Lemar is tipped to leave the La Liga side this summer and Everton are reported to have him as a prime transfer target according to Le10 Sport.
The Frenchman moved to Atletico in a €70million deal from AS Monaco but has struggled to make a big impact for Diego Simeone's side. After Atletico were knocked out of the UEFA Champions League by Red Bull Leipzig, the Spanish side will surely now look to finalise their transfer business ahead of the new season.
It is not the first time Lemar has been linked with the Blues but there's no doubt he would be seen as a coup should Carlo Ancelotti be able to pull it off.
Atletico paid a huge fee for the player and might be reluctant to lose out on recouping what they spent. The Everton manager might have to look at a cheaper option to bolster his squad.
Why should I sign up?
Carlo Ancelotti's Everton are looking to kick on and another crucial summer is underway at Goodison Park.

Spanish outlet Sport claim that Real Madrid are willing to slash his asking price considerably just to finally get him a permanent move away from the La Liga champions.
The club have been seemingly keen on finding him a new home for a while, with the midfielder spending two years on loan at Bayern Munich between 2017-2019 but the Bundesliga side opted to not trigger the buy option in the deal. Following his return to Madrid, he only made eight appearances in the most recent season.
Now, it is reported that Rodriguez will be available for just £7.7 million this summer. A massive discount considering last time he was reportedly available, clubs such as Manchester United and Liverpool were told to pay around £35-40m for him.
If the asking price is indeed that low, there will no doubt be plenty of Premier League sides interested.
Carlo Ancelotti will do well to get ahead of the queue although they'd hope the player's wage demands won't price them out of any potential deal.
Former Everton academy graduate, now at Wigan Athletic
Sky Sports claim Everton have joined the race to resign their former prospect.
Wigan recently accepted a bid of around £2m from Sheffield United for the 23-year-old but the Blues, along with recently promoted Fulham are now claimed to also be intrested.
A move to AC Milan fell through in January but now it looks likely a move to Premier League is on for the defender and there's no shortage of interested parties.
In an exclusive interview with the ECHO, Antonee Robinson said that there is one clear factor in deciding where he ends up this summer - available gametime.
He said: “The main thing for me next season is I want to keep playing and keep doing well and performing. If it looks like I’m not going to start, it (Milan) might not be an option unless I’m not getting the offer to start elsewhere.
“My goal next season, no matter where I am and what I’m doing, I just want to play. We’ll just see what happens.”
