Everton: Fans hail Josh King transfer news - Everton Transfer Rumours

Many Everton fans have been hailing a report from The Athletic which claims that Josh King signed for less than the original reported transfer fee on Deadline Day.

The Goodison Park faithful have finally managed to secure themselves a decent back-up striker to Dominic Calvert-Lewin following the exits of Moise Kean, Cenk Tosun and Ellis Simms on loan deals for the rest of the 2020/21 term, and it seems as if it came at a cut-price too.

Should King start for Everton?





The Norway international has a lot of experience playing in the Premier League with AFC Bournemouth, with no fewer than 48 goals and a further 15 assists in 161 matches in total across five consecutive seasons in the English top-flight (Transfermarkt).

Having played in the division before, the 29-year-old should not need much time to adapt, and so could well hit the ground running straight away.
