Everton's transfer window slammed on Thursday with a desperate deadline as three new faces came through the door.
A quarter, Kurt Zouma, was finally announced on Friday when the blues gave it up extremely late to bolster their defensive lines.
But they reinforce, they did, and Everton's squad looks much stronger as they embark on their new Premier League campaign.
After the recordings of Richarlison and Lucas Digne, who were earlier in the window, Yerry Mina, Bernard and Andre Gomes joined the blues.
The young Portuguese goalkeeper Joao Virginia was also brought by Arsenal after a three-year contract in the club.
But what did the media do about Marcel Brands and Marco Silva?
After spending most of the summer reducing salary costs and group size, Everton entered the overdrive on the closing date with three conspicuous new signings. Brazilian international Bernard arrived in free transfer while a club delegation flew to Barcelona to finalize deals Yerry Mina and André Gomes, who were loaned out.
Many high-risk buys, but Everton has shown some serious support to new manager Marco Silva. Yerry Mina had a wonderful World Cup and although he can not make it in Barcelona, that's fine, the Toffees like to give him a chance. Andre Gome's reputation is so low that this loan works well, he has much to prove. Richarlison has featured in Watford and has the talent to bridge the gap between Everton and the top six. Lucas Digne and Bernard, on a free, provide more class.
A hectic last day pulled that back a bit. Of course, Richarlison looks very overpriced, but if Marco Silva lets him play as he did in Watford, he'll be a good match. But the late purchases from Bernard, Andre Gomes and Yerry Mina filled a few holes, but they probably could have got away with a scorer.
It's a lot of money for Richarlison. I saw him in a few games last season and after the first six games you would have paid for him, but you would not have bought him for the next 32. Goalies win as many games as Richarlison. You're on time for World Cups, Premier Leagues and Champions leagues through football, these big tournaments you win, nobody without a good goalkeeper. I have no problem with people paying £ 60m for a goalkeeper.
Yerry Mina is a 6ft 5in middle half and I think he fits Everton. Goodison Park has a nice, tight pitch and Man Utd talked about getting him, but they play on the midline and he will not want to hunt back. Everton plays lower, he is decent at set players and Everton is good in set games.
After Ronald Koeman's terrible misuse of a £ 150 million war chest in 2017, new Everton boss Marco Silva has been lucky enough to be back on the transfer market this summer with the Toffees and the manager they had, to assist hunt for six months.
Another £ 100m was invested in attempts to turn Everton into a Premier League troop. Watford's Richarlison is responsible for nearly half of this spending at a hefty £ 50m, but this excessive fee is offset by the free transfer of Bernard and borrowing from Andre Gomes.
The two last came to Goodison Park on a busy day, where the Toffees also signed the central defender Yerry Mina from Barcelona. The Colombian scored three goals at the World Cup in Russia, but Everton will count on his defense as he conceded 58 goals last season.
