Everton could look to sign Germany international Niclas Fullkrug this summer
Everton could look to reignite their interest in Germany international Niclas Fullkrug this summer after financial troubles emerged at his current club Werder Bremen.
The Toffees were linked with a move with the 30-year-old striker in January, after he scored twice in the World Cup group stages for Germany while in Qatar.
It was believed that £17.5m would be able to get a deal done back then, and now it has emerged that his current club must raise £33.3m before June 30th as they deal with financial issues.
That could open the door for Everton to revitalise their interest in Fullkrug, with the Liverpool Echo (31 March) suggesting they could make a move during the summer transfer window.
With Sean Dyche in charge of Everton heading into next season, we can look at his past and see the type of players he likes to bring into a club to build around.

The likelihood is that Fullkrug would fit perfectly into any plans he has for the team, standing at 6ft 2 and with decent mobility he is essentially the perfect Dyche striker.
He’s a great finisher too, as shown with his 15 goals in 24 appearances in the Bundesliga this season and with the Toffees in desperate need for goals to be added with Dominic Calvert-Lewin no longer reliable.
But there are likely to be several interested parties in his signature this summer, as there were in January, and with Bremen now in a position where they need to sell there is clearly an opportunity there that should be looked at.
Firstly though the club have to avoid relegation or it would be a lot of time wasted while planning for something that would be taken off the table immediately.
