Everton prioritise attacking unit signings for summer transfer window
Everton are prioritising signings in the attacking unit for the summer transfer window according to journalist Joe Thomas.
The Toffees have managed 77 goals in their last 76 Premier League games combined, and are desperate to add a striker or two to the squad to bolster their attacking options.
And according to Liverpool Echo journalist Thomas, while speaking to the Sunderland Echo (6 June), he has admitted the club know that is their priority for the summer window.
“Everton’s priority this summer will be the attacking unit, most importantly the striking options,” he said.
It’s no surprise to anyone that Everton want attackers in the summer, because we are absolutely desperate to get some goals in the team.
Calvert-Lewin is the main man but he can never stay fit for a long period of time, and even when he is fit his goal threat has diminished in recent years.
Neal Maupay’s transfer from Brighton has been nothing short of a disaster and the likelihood is that he will leave the club in the summer, which only leaves Ellis Simms and Tom Cannon as inexperienced options or Demarai Gray playing out of position.
That simply isn’t good enough for a club the size of Everton and with the aspirations this club claims to have, and it simply has to be addressed now.
Sean Dyche knows it, and he has to prioritise that before anything else otherwise whatever signings he makes will mean very little without that to go with it.
