Everton have ruled out the possibility of selling a key first-team trio this summer unless an offer arrives in their inbox that cannot be refused, transfer insider Dean Jones has revealed to GIVEMESPORT.Sean Dyche wants to build a team that can fight for survival and cannot afford any major departures from Goodison Park.Everton transfer newsIt was an almost completely different pre-season for Everton, who would have been preparing for life in the Second Division without a 1-0 win over Bournemouth on the final day of the 2022/23 season.Of course, Abdoulaye Doucouré’s second-half goal spared the Toffees, and Everton’s 70-year status in the top flight remained at least for another season.Despite the reprieve, Everton remain among the bookmakers’ favorites to avoid relegation next season as the Merseyside side’s problems show no signs of abating. Their chances of survival could largely depend on which players they can keep in the summer transfer window, with a number of Premier League sides looking for their best talent.But according to transfer insider Jones, Everton have made it clear that three players cannot leave cheaply this summer.What has Dean Jones said about Everton’s transfer business?Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Jones admitted there is interest from some of Everton’s best players from elsewhere, but claimed the likelihood of them being sold is slim.Regarding the current situation at Goodison Park, the transfer insider said: “There has been a lot of speculation about Everton and who they will sell this summer to raise funds and there has been a lot of talk about Jordan Pickford who could be the one to do it. many bring in money. “This actually goes against what I feel about the situation now that we are in the middle of the transfer period and heading into the new season.“Pickford is not available for a transfer, it seems like a pretty clear position from what I’ve heard.“Obviously him and Calvert-Lewin are the two big names in that team who could make the jump to a team playing in Europe, but I don’t see that happening as things stand now.“To be honest, the same goes for Alex Iwobi. He is someone they want as a key figure in the team and although there are some reports suggesting he will be available in this window, I don’t believe that is the case. .”What is the future of Everton?Of course, if Everton have difficulty turning down Pickford, Calvert-Lewin or Iwobi, they will likely be shown the exit door, but for now it looks like the trio will remain at Goodison Park. The same cannot be said for talented midfielder Amadou Onana, who, according to The Guardian, is a transfer target for West Ham United.The Europa Conference League winners, who are set to lose captain Declan Rice to Arsenal, are claimed to view the Belgian as a suitable replacement, with a move worth £50m touted
