Everton fortunes will depend on new signings - Koeman

ESPN FC's Stewart Robson discusses how Manchester United should line up in their "must-win" game against Everton. It is impossible to change everything or to change a lot in one summer. "Maybe this time is the best to understand that if you need to change where we need to change".

He told the official Man United website: 'I think it will be tough, they've strengthened in pre-season, they've improved their squad.

'All teams raise their games when they play against Manchester United - we know that.

"Already at 19 you saw a fantastic player", Koeman said of Ibrahimovic.

The Telegraph says the Everton manager is weighing up a £20m move for the France worldwide.

The former Saints star was regarded as one of the finest defensive midfield players in the country a couple of years ago and West Brom could also be tempted to enter the race, with money available to manager Tony Pulis for team strengthening. But ready for the Premier League?

"What we do is analysing young players, it is about Tom Davies, it is about Kieran Dowell, it's about Liam Walsh, it's about Dominic (Calvert-Lewin) the striker, (Jonjoe) Kenny the right full-back", Koeman said. It's never an easy place to go and win but we had a good performance there last season when we won 3-0 and it was probably our best performance of the season.

"About the future of James, the future of other players, new players. that is not the focus I need to show at this moment".

The report claims Schneiderlin is Ronald Koeman's transfer priority for the winter transfer window, but the Toffees face competition from fellow Premier League side West Bromwich Albion.
