Everton finished seventh in the Premier League to book a spot in the Europa League next season and Koeman said he was looking for more attacking-minded players for his squad during the off-season.

”A clear objective will be to bring in players who will have more productivity,“ Koeman told the club’s website. ( ”I expect that we can change that for next season.

“If we can do the business we want to do this summer, the team for next season will be really strong, I believe.”

While the season ended only last week, Koeman said he would keep an eye on transfers while on holiday.

“On one side I will take a holiday and relax but, on the other side, as a manager it is totally different than as a football player because everyone knows we would like to do some good business,” Koeman said.

“You need a break... but also having thoughts of next season.”

Everton will begin their Europa League qualifying matches in late July.
