Everton boss David Moyes is set to meet chairman Bill Kenwright in order to discuss the club’s summer transfer plans and iron out the Toffees' policy for when the window opens on the first day of July.
Moyes is adamant he needs to make additions ahead of the next Premier League campaign if he wants to keep Everton on an upward trajectory. The Toffees are renowned for holding back during the transfer window, but Moyes has stated a number of signings are in order come the summer.
Moyes told ESPN: "I will meet Bill Kenwright in the next week or so.
"We did not need a great deal of cash to turn it around in January, so without an awful lot we could give ourselves a fighting chance of getting back up the rails again.
"I do not need reassurances about managing Everton and it's not as if this is absolute desperation. We will just have a talk about things.
"I just want to be able to compete, to be ambitious and to give the people something to cheer about more often."
Steveen Pienaar has proved to be a terrific addition to the Everton line-up since re-joining on-loan in January after leaving the club for Tottenham last summer, and Moyes is keen to keep him at Goodison Park next season.
"We are addressing the Pienaar situation," Moyes continued. "[Kenwright] wants him to stay, I want him to. It will be down to finances."
