It's official, Carlo Ancelotti is back in the Premier League, having put pen to paper on a four and a half year deal to become Everton manager on Saturday.


The three-time Champions League winning coach parted ways with Napoli earlier this month and has now taken up the hot-seat at Goodison Park, six and a half years after his first spell in the English top flight with Chelsea.

Carlo Ancelotti

Ancelotti has a big task on his hand on Merseyside, with the Toffees currently hovering just four points above the relegation zone, following a wretched start to the campaign which saw Marco Silva given the boot.


And although Silva paid the price for a poor run of ​Premier League results, some of his players didn't exactly help ease Everton's woes.


With January looming, here's a look at the deadwood Ancelotti should consider moving on during the transfer window.


Moise Kean

Moise Kean

Where else to start than the man who promised so much, but who has delivered so very, very little in an Everton shirt? Kean has failed to find the net in 12 Premier League games this term.


The 19-year-old only joined the club in the summer in a £29m move from ​Serie A champions ​Juventusbut he has failed to live up to the hype which once saw him touted for the Golden Boy award.


His defining moment came in Everton's last away game at ​Manchester United, when interim boss Duncan Ferguson brought the Italian on only to haul him off 18 minutes later after a pitiful display.


Many may feel it is too soon to call time on Kean's Everton career, but if Ancelotti is unimpressed by what he sees, it would be a huge statement to the rest of the squad if Kean was sent packing.


Cenk Tosun

Cenk Tosun

The Turkey international was brought in to replace Romelu Lukaku after the latter's switch to Manchester United in 2017, but Tosun has failed to step into the Belgian striker's shoes.


Tosun was signed by Sam Allardyce from Besiktas for £27m but once Silva took charge, the forward hardly got a look in and has only started twice for Everton this season.


Averaging nearly a goal every two games for the Turkish giants, he hasn't come close to those sort of numbers during his time on Merseyside.


Oumar Niasse

Everton's front line problems continue with Niasse, another striker who has found himself way down the pecking order in terms of attacking options.


The Toffees forked out £13.5m to sign the Senegalese forward from Russian side Lokomotiv Moscow three years ago but he has only found the net eight times for ​Everton during his time with the club.


Loan spells at Hull and then Cardiff proved less than fruitful in the seasons to come, as Niasse struggled to find form.


His only act this season has been to replace Kean at Old Trafford in the teenager's infamous double-sub game. With his contract up in the summer, Ancelotti may look to reap some cash reward in January for the out of sorts striker.


Morgan Schneiderlin

Morgan Schneiderlin

A high profile signing from Manchester United in 2017, the Frenchman has flattered to deceive during his time at Goodison.


The 28-year-old has since outlined his regret over leaving the Red Devils after only 18 months at Old Trafford, and Everton fans will likely be wishing the £24m had been spent elsewhere.


Schneiderlin only featured nine times during the last campaign, and although he has played six times already this season, he has hardly cemented a place in the Toffees' starting lineup.


A big earner, the midfielder still has two seasons left to run on his current contract so Ancelotti may want to shift him out of the door as quickly as possible. 


Yannick Bolasie

Yannick Bolasie

You'd be easily forgiven if you had forgotten that Bolasie is still on the books at Everton, such has been his lack of impact on Merseyside.


A big-money signing from Crystal Palace three years ago, it's safe to say Bolasie has fallen out of favour and has hardly justified the £25m spent on securing his services.


In fact, during his ill-fated spell, the winger has spent more time away from the club on loan, first with ​Aston Villa, then Anderlecht and currently he is plying his trade in Portugal with Sporting CP.


The man once regarded in the same bracket as Wilfried Zaha has dramatically declined, and Ancelotti will be praying Lisbon make a permanent move for Bolasie soon.


Cuco Martina

Cuco Martina

Signed during the Ronald Koeman era from Southampton, Martina has also been a player to spend significant time away from Goodison.


He dropped down to the Championship last season to play for Stoke but the Potters saw little potential and terminated his loan in January. The Dutch-born defender returned to the Netherlands with Feyenoord in the second half of the season but despite making 11 appearances, the move wasn't made permanent.


Martina's contract finishes in the summer so Ancelotti will be keen to sell the 30-year-old during the upcoming window.
