Everton lost Anthony Gordon and failed to sign any new players for the incoming manager
Everton were the only Premier League club not to bring in any players during the January transfer window despite their need to inject life into their squad. Numerous attempts were made to bring in players on deadline day, the day after Dyche was officially announced as manager, but they were beaten by other clubs or could not get deals over the line. Despite criticism of their failure in the transfer market - owner Farhad Moshiri gave an interview last week in which he promised they would sign a striker.
The investigation opened in January 2022.
