After a spectacular debut season with The Toffees, Roberto Martinez will be looking to build on this season's success with some key additions in the summer. Martinez has not only demonstrated his ability to significantly improve players such as: John Stones, Ross Barkley and Seamus Coleman but to also resurrect careers, like that of Gareth Barry
Heres a look at some Premier League stars who could benefit from his talents:
Finding first team opportunities hard to come by at Manchester City and thus being loaned out to Everton, Gareth Barry has been nothing short of a sensation under the tutelage of Martinez this season.
He has been asked to play in a defensive midfield position alongside James McCarthy, and the Manchester City loanee has more than contributed his fair share to what has been one of Everton' most successful seasons in recent years.
The former Aston Villa captain has been in such stellar form this season, he has been hailed by his teamates and manger alike, prompting suggestions he merited a call up to Roy Hodgson's World Cup squad this summer. Out of contract at the end of the season, it remains to be seen what the future holds for the 33-year-old.
One could argue that the Manchester born striker is not 'struggling' by any stretch of the imagination. After all Welbeck is a key member of Roy Hodgson's World Cup squad, and is on the back of a season in which he scored a career-high nine Premier League goals.
However a consistent lack of opportunities in a central striking role at Old Trafford could lead the England International to look for pastures new. Considering the unlikelihood of Romelu Lukaku returning to Goodison Park for another season, and the success the Belgian had under Martinez, could this represent a golden opportunity for the Manchester United academy graduate ?
An early import of the Tottenham Hotspur revolution, the English born German was deemed surplus to requirements in the January transfer window by former Spurs boss Tim Sherwood.
A productive spell at Fulham followed, where the German U-21 captain showed the ability that brought him to England in a £1.5 million deal from German giants Schalke 04.
With his Tottenham future still unclear and Everton needing additions to their squad to accommodate European football next season, could Roberto Martinez be the man to take the aspiring German international to the next level.
Despite being a regular in Chelsea's Europa League triumph in 2012, the powerful winger has found opportunities near to non-existent under Jose Mourinho.
In an attempt to get more regular first team football the Super Eagle star was loaned to Liverpool.
But in spite of the Red's title challenge, Moses found first team opportunities very limited under Brendan Rodgers and will surely be moved on by the Stamford Bridge outfit this summer.
With Everton in search of replacements for the loan duo of Romelu Lukaku and Gerard Deulofeu and Roberto Martinez being a known admirer of the Nigerian ; could this be the perfect solution for all parties ?
Unfortunately for Tom Cleverly, like Manchester United and their departed manager David Moyes, the United academy graduate has endured a torrid season.
Being labelled a scapegoat in United's decent down the table, he has incurred mass criticism.
However despite what the 19,000 strong - and growing - petition to ban him from the World Cup says, the young England International is a remarkable talent. Is it a coincidence that it was Martinez who came to the defence of the young Englishman; perhaps the beginnings of a new relationship ?
