Everton boss Marco Silva excited about Andre Gomes, Bernard signings

Published on: 10 August 2018

Let the Exploding Heads take you around the whirlwind action of the Premier League's transfer deadline day. ESPN FC's Craig Burley appreciates what Liverpool did in the summer transfer window, but feels Man United were disappointing.

Everton manager Marco Silva has said he is excited about the impact new midfield signings Andre Gomes and Bernard can make at Goodison Park.

Gomes moved to Everton on a season-long loan deal from Barcelona, while Brazil international Bernard joined on a free transfer.

"It [signing Gomes] was a good opportunity for us in the market," Silva told a news conference.

"We were dealing with Barcelona with [the transfer of Yerry] Mina, and I know the player very well. For sure, he will help us."

The Everton manager said Bernard "has a different profile to the other players we have in that position."

He added: "He can play on the left, right and behind the striker. As offensive midfielders we have Gylfi Sigurdsson and Kieran Dowell, but Bernard has a different profile.

"He is going to bring quality and some competition. At the end, I need to have problems deciding my XI because it's the only way the club can grow and compete to take each other's positions."
