It has been a tough window for Everton, who lost the forenamed Gordon and saw Arnaut Danjuma turn his reverse on them before subscribing for Spurs shortly after sacking director Frank Lampard.

As formerly bandied, Fernandez and Caicedo are big- plutocrat transfer targets going into the final day of the window.
