Everton chief executive Keith Wyness has revealed the board will provide manager David Moyes with funds to strengthen his squad in the summer.
Moyes led the Toffees to a fifth-placed finish in the Premier League and automatic qualification for the UEFA Cup after a successful season for the Merseyside club.
But despite rumours of a lack of transfer funds due to a potential new stadium, Wyness has revealed that Moyes will be able to add to his squad during the close season.
"We are keeping it close to our chest at the moment," he told evertonTV.
"(Chairman) Bill (Kenwright) is chatting with David every day and we are well aware that we have got to build on the success we have had.
"As we have done in the last few years, we will support David to make the squad the best it can be.
"In the transfer window I am speaking to agents all the time. Nine out of ten don't come to anything, but you have to be speaking and know what is in the market place.
"There is no doubt we are on the top list of where players want to come to. It makes it easier at the elite level and also when bringing in the young players.
"There is an air of optimism about the club at the moment."
