Everton manager Roberto Martinez has revealed the club have already identified their summer transfer targets and are now working to complete their signings as soon as possible in order to provide the fans "something they can be extremely satisfied with."
The Spanish manager enjoyed an impressive debut campaign at Goodison Park after replacing David Moyes, but his side have struggled to cope with the demands of the European League competition during this campaign and have finished in a disappointing 11th Premier League place, five positions below their finish in the 2013-14 season.
While the whole squad have been hampered by a number of injuries since the beginning of the campaign, club record signing Romelu Lukaku has only managed to net 10 goals in the Premier League.
Martinez has urged his side to move on ahead of next season while admitting the summer transfer window will be vital to face the future with renewed hope.
While reports have linked Everton with a number of players, including Tottenham midfielder Moussa Dembele, Manchester United's Jonny Evans, or Barcelona starlet Gerard Deulofeu, Martinez admits they have already identified their targets although refused to name them.
"I think it is an important summer. It becomes about recruitment and that's the priority. I think we are very clear in what we need. We have found the players that we want and it becomes a process about trying to make those targets a possibility and make them Everton players," he said.
"We are very excited about the future. I think the work from this season has made us stronger and more mature. If anything, going through the difficulties of this campaign has made us hungrier for success. We want to give our fans something they can be extremely satisfied with and clearly this summer the recruitment process is vital."
The manager hopes to do the job as soon as possible as believes that the fact there is no World Cup or Euros this summer will help them to secure their targets.
"No tournament this summer does help. I think it will depend on the target but obviously major tournaments always delay those sorts of situations. The value of the player in the market can be drastically changed by what happens in a major tournament.
"But now our business could happen in a much smoother manner and we will try to do it as quickly as we can with some of our targets. Others we will try to bring in late because of the type of player that we need to bring in."
