Everton manager Roberto Martinez has said that he is happy with his striking choices for the new season, Goal.com reports.

The former Wigan boss has already bought Arouna Kone and Gerard Deulofeu to Goodison Park and feels that he doesn’t need to add anymore front-men to his squad as his current group of strikers will be enough to trouble defences in the Premier League.

“As a squad of players, you always look to have as many dimensions as you can,” he told the club’s official website.

“We had Victor Anichebe playing against Juventus and he did a fantastic job. Arouna Kone played well against Blackburn and Nikica Jelavic exactly the same”.

“Tolis Vellios did really well in Austria as well, so all of a sudden you have got every player showing what they can do and what they can bring to the team and that’s a very healthy position to have.”

Last season, Everton’s group of strikers only managed to score 19 goals between them, with none of them managing to reach double figures for the season.

Martinez may now look to improve Everton’s midfield, with reports suggesting that he is set to raid his former club Wigan again by making a move for James McCarthy, who is valued at £20 million by Latics chairman Dave Whelan.
