Everton are reportedly eyeing an exciting double swoop for Napoli duo Hirving Lozano and Eljif Elmas.
The Lowdown: Potential exits
The likes of Anthony Gordon and Dele Alli have been strongly linked with moves away from Goodison Park in recent days, meaning that the Merseyside club may have to start looking at potential replacements for them.
However, they also need to look at bringing in a new striker as well, following the injury to Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
The Latest: Napoli raid?
However, they would only be sold if an ‘important offer’ came in for them.
The Verdict: Get both in!
Frank Lampard’s team could do with adding some more quality to the squad, especially if more players leave the club over the next couple of weeks.
Hailed as ‘magic‘ by former Premier League star Robert Earnshaw, Elmas would add a creative spark in midfield, having recorded seven goals and six assists for Napoli last season (Transfermarkt), as well as an impressive nine goals and eight assists for his country North Macedonia.
Lozano is a player who has been around a little longer, accumulating a total of 124 goals for club and country combined over the course of his career so far, and would offer the Blues another exciting attacking option.
Nonetheless, getting both in from an established European side in Napoli would feel like a real coup.
