Martinez admits Everton must buy if they qualify for Europe

Everton boss Roberto Martinez admits they'll have to buy this summer if they qualify for Europe.

Martinez has largely preferred to target signing youngsters with potential, but he admits he would also need to add a further influx of experienced senior players if Europe was on the agenda.

He said: "Europe is obviously an aim we need to fight for. To be able to compete in Europe would stretch us massively in terms of the squad.

"100% we'd need to increase the size of our squad.

"Europe has different demands and that has to be reflected in the numbers you have in the squad and the type of player you bring in too.

"Sometimes you need to bring in experienced players at an international level."
