Everton: Blues eye up move for Nicolas Jackson

Everton: Blues eye up move for Nicolas Jackson -Everton News

Everton are interested in signing Villarreal attacker Nicolas Jackson in the summer transfer window, according to a new transfer report that has emerged.

The Lowdown: New attacker required

Richarlison’s exit to Tottenham earlier this summer has clearly left the Blues short of attacking options, especially with Dominic Calvert-Lewin out injured.

It is vital that Frank Lampard signs a new forward in the coming weeks, with a failure to address the situation potentially leading to a genuine Premier League relegation battle.

Now, Everton has been linked with a move for a player plying his trade abroad, suggesting their summer transfer business is far from done.

The Latest: Everton keen on Jackson signing

According to Football Insider, the Blues have ‘set their sights’ on Villarreal star Jackson, with their interest going up a gear after his ‘man-of-the-match display in his team’s La Liga opener against Real Valladolid.’

The 21-year-old has registered 13 goal involvements (five goals and eight assists) in 26 appearances for the Yellow Submarine’s B team.

The Verdict: Strong summer target

Jackson could be an exciting addition to Everton’s forward line this summer, with the Senegalese capable of thriving on either flank, as well as centrally.

Should Everton move for Emmanuel Dennis?

Yes

Yes

No

No

His end product for Villarreal’s B side, added to the goal and assist he has in nine games for the senior team, is clearly consistent – a goal involvement every other game is impressive – and he could provide Frank Lampard with the extra sprinkling of magic he is missing in attack.

The fact that he has a £27m release clause means that Everton know they can get Jackson if they want him, and while the price tag is far from cheap, he would be a long-term prospect who could be a key man from the off.
