Everton manager David Moyes is hopeful owner Bill Kenwright will give him enough funds to strengthen his squad this summer and also plans to discuss his own future.
The Toffees boss spent just over £5million in the January transfer window, bringing in the likes of Nikica Jelavic and Darron Gibson as well as the returning Steven Pienaar on-loan from Tottenham.
And the Scot hopes to keep his star players, including Pienaar, and build a squad at Goodison Park which can challenge for Europe next season.
Everton now look odds on to finish above city rivals Liverpool in the table for the first time since 2005.
And Moyes, who has one year left on his contract, will meet Kenwright to discuss his summer transfer budget as well as discuss a new deal.
He said: "I speak with Bill every day, but I plan to go down and see him in the next week or two to discuss things.
"I've got a year to go anyway, so it's not as though it's absolutely desperate. We will talk about it in the next week or so.
"As regards to the summer, we don't need an awful lot. I just need to know there is a chink of light."
