Everton could sign multiple new forwards in January transfer window
Everton could sign multiple new forwards in the January transfer window with their season hanging by a thread, according to the Liverpool Echo.
The Blues are sitting precariously above the Premier League relegation zone and boss Frank Lampard desperately needs some answers.
Journalist Joe Thomas confessed that finding attacking players is a “priority” in the January transfer window despite financial constraints.
“This is not the case as they approach January. While the club will still have financial constraints, and business is notoriously difficult after Christmas – and after a World Cup – those in charge of recruitment should know what resources are available. They will also know what the priority is,” said the journalist as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.
“As the ECHO has previously reported, there is an acceptance that finding attacking reinforcements is the priority and that may extend to more than one forward target. Everton will have to be savvy but the deal that brought Conor Coady to the club was clever business and although the club ultimately missed out on Mohammed Kudus and Mykhailo Mudryk their success since the transfer window closed at least showed Everton were looking in the right places.
“There will be an emphasis on outgoings in January, as well as finding good loan placements for some of the Under-21 starlets too. Business will be subject to financial considerations but Everton can not afford to end January without strengthening up top.”

At least it seems like Everton have got the right idea heading into the January transfer window, attacking reinforcements are an absolute must.
Missing out on the likes of Kudus and Mudryk is painful, especially after seeing the youngsters’ fine form in the UEFA Champions League this season.
Nevertheless, as the report states, it shows the Toffees are looking in the right places for talents, something they haven’t done in previous windows.
The club need to avoid panic buying if they don’t find the right target, this ultimately leads Everton down the same dreary path they have been on countless times.
The World Cup break provides the perfect opportunity to analyse the market even further and fully make sure the Blues don’t make any mistakes.
If Lampard gets backed on the players he really wants, he can turn this mess around, he just needs a few signings to turn things on their head at Goodison Park.
