Everton midfielder Leon Osman expects manager Roberto Martinez to go on a signing spree.
The fixture is Osmanâ€™s testimonial game, after playing more than 10 years of first team football for the Blues.
Osman said: "We try not to be distracted by speculation. But sometimes you canâ€™t help but hear the rumours about who the manager wants to bring in to the club.
"(Muhamed) Besic should be completed in the next few days and weâ€™re aware of the rumours about a couple more coming in. It would be good if any new arrivals could play in my testimonial."
