Everton are considering a move for Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Hwang Hee-chan, according to The Athletic’s David Ornstein.
The Lowdown: Goalscorers wanted
Without Richarlison, goals are expected to come from Everton number nine Dominic Calvert-Lewin. However, with the England international’s history of injury, he is not always the most reliable striker to base a team around.
For example, the 25-year-old played just 17 league games last season, contributing on a minimal five occasions.
The Latest: Interest in Hwang Hee-chan
According to Ornstein’s most recent report for The Athletic, Everton are considering Hwang as a potential addition at striker.
The 26-year-old has also been receiving strong interest from Premier League rivals Leeds United.
It is also claimed however that a Toffees move may require Conor Coady’s loan at Goodison Park to be made permanent, possibly throwing this proposition in doubt.
The Verdict: Risky move?
This could prove to be worrying for Everton fans as it appears the 26-year-old hasn’t adapted well to life in the Premier League.
Whilst playing for Red Bull Salzburg, the versatile forward bagged an impressive 45 goals and 29 assists in 126 games.
As a result, former Salzburg head coach Peter Zeidler sung his praises, having exclaimed: “He’s exceptional, has a brutal dynamism. I’ve rarely seen anything like it.”
If Lampard can get him back firing like he used to in Austria, this could be a strong addition to the Toffees’ squad, but it certainly feels like a risky one.
