Benitez targets two positions for Jan market
Everton boss Rafa Benitez wants to strengthen his midfield in January.
The Liverpool Echo says Everton are weighing up their options ahead of the January transfer window with two positions at the heart of discussions.
The Blues are unlikely to splash the cash in the winter window, given financial fair play restrictions, but Rafa Benitez is hoping the club finds room in the budget to help him bolster the squad.
Sales and sending fringe players out on loan may, again, determine the extent of what the manager can do in January but talks are currently focused around a winger and box-to-box midfielder.
It is unclear at this stage if Everton, when they finalise any transfer wish-list, would be in a position to sign both or just one but high-level discussions are around a wide-man and a player who could bolster the team's central midfield options.
