Everton manager Roberto Martinez says he does not enjoy working in the January transfer window as he feels you cannot get value for money in deals.
Prices are traditionally inflated during the January transfer window, and as a result many clubs opt not to bring players in, with Martinez adding that players he has scouted for a long time are generally not available during this window.
Martinez said, “We are always working and if we can do something to help the players we have got at the club then we will do something. But what’s clear is that January is not very straightforward.
“You never get value for money, first and foremost, and you will not get players you have been following for a long time. And if you want to rely on January to find solutions for your season, then it is a big gamble.”
