The dethroned champions need to recruit another midfielder and a striker and, while they have reservations about Patrice Evra, finding his replacement is not necessarily their top priority.
They have searched across Europe and have found flaws in most left-backs they have watched with Lyon's Aly Cissokho, Copenhagen's Bryan Oviedo, Atletico Madrid's Filipe Luis and Valencia's Jordi Alba among them.
Baines will not push to go and could well be still at Goodison Park come September. Tim Cahill remains the most likely to depart with the Middle East beckoning.

I would believe the speculation about Cahill as there would appear to be genuine interest. I would also believe the speculation about Fellaini, given his recent comments and his dad's previous comments.

If we let go of Fellaini and/or Baines I expect that the likes of Jelovic will see the club for what it is and want out also. No chance then of picking up good players with ambition, regardless of how much of the selling fees Moyes gets!
Everton has to find a way sign Pienaar, keep Fellaini and Baine, and pick up a couple more players to get us to the next level.
I hope I'm not dreaming!
