Pat Nevin is tipping Everton to potentially break into the Top 6 places in the Premier League.

But there is a caveat and it's down to completing their planned business by the close of the transfer deadline.

One is to get a deal for Crystal Palace's Wilfried Zaha over the line. And the other is to strengthen at centre-back.

If they do both of those two things though, Pat sees his former club ruffling a few feathers further up the table.

"They need a centre-back and they're working hard to get a centre-back," he said on Off The Ball.

"And they've got the money to do it and it looks like they're going to do it. There is some suggestion - and this is the caveat - if they get Zaha... I'm looking at that team with Richarlison, Moise Kean who I'm stunned they got for that money - wow, that could be the deal of the season by some distance by the way - and you put in the creativity they've got from that midfield area.

"Bernard had a good season last year and just got better and Sigurdsson, I'm a big fan of as well, that looks good. That looks very, very scary. You add Zaha on top of that as well, then that's one of the scariest front-lines around."

Adding that they would be "brilliant to watch", he feels the addition of Zaha could even throw Everton into the Top 4 mix, let alone Top 6.

"I would not back against them breaking into the Top 6, at least," said Pat.
