Why Everton cannot afford to lose Jack Wilshere and Alfie Mawson to their rivals

Everton need to rebuild their squad under new manager Marco Silva. With the summer transfer window up and running, this will be an important period for the club.

Wayne Rooney will leave the Toffees to indulge in MLS action. His absence will leave a void and in addition to that, there are several other areas the club should improve. To do so, Everton must sign their targets ahead of competition from other teams.

Players who have been linked with Everton

Everton have been linked with several players in different positions. Names like Jack Wilshere, Jamie Vardy, William Carvalho, Alfie Mawson, etc are the ones who are linked with prominence. Recent reports suggest that there are several Premier League clubs who are eyeing a swoop for Arsenal’s Wilshere. Hence, the Everton hierarchy should work hard to get the deal done.

Meanwhile, the Toffees are in dire need of a centre-back. Swansea’s Mawson is on their radar but West Ham and Wolves are also interested in the player. Let us now scout Wilshere and Mawson to conclude as to why Everton must sign them ahead of their rivals.

Jack Wilshere 

Injuries have plagued his career time and time again but Jack Wilshere is probably one of the best ball-playing midfielders in England. He has the propensity to pick passes from nowhere and create scoring opportunities for his team.

The 26-year-old can play across various positions to impact the game. His ability to invariably have an extra second while in possession is something to cherish. He can dribble past people from tight situations, making him a truly valuable player.

The Englishman often utilises his low centre of gravity to turn defenders around sharply. The fact that Everton can sign him for free should prompt them to prioritize a deal for him this summer.

Alfie Mawson 

The Swansea defender was one of their brightest talents last season but unfortunately, he couldn’t keep them from getting relegated. As mentioned above, there are other Premier League clubs who are interested in the player along with Everton.


The 24-year-old is a tall and bulky centre-back with the ability to shrug off centre-forwards with ease. He is great on the ball and his passing skills are truly admirable.

Furthermore, Mawson can be a threat from set-pieces. He scored 2 goals for Swansea last season and his impact on the field is incredible. Given Everton’s frailties at the back, they must go all out to beat the competition and sign the talented centre-back.
