The resident Toffees in the Transfer Tavern are beginning to enjoy life under Sam Allardyce this season.
Everton’s season was clouded with uncertainty and speculation for much of the current campaign following the dismissal of Ronald Koeman, but the ship has been steadied on Merseyside since the appointment of Allardyce in November. Under the leadership of Big Sam, Everton have turned their form around and began to climb up the table away from the relegation zone after spending the majority of the campaign.
Now that Allardyce has had ample time to assess the strengths and weaknesses of his squad, he will be working in conjunction with the Everton hierarchy to establish a list of transfer targets for the upcoming January window.
Considering neither Dominic Calvert-Lewin or Oumar Niasse have firmly cemented their place as Everton’s first-choice striker just yet, Allardyce should be hoping to bring another centre-forward to the club next month.
And Everton may not need to look too far away from Merseyside for their next forward acquisition, as Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge could well be tempted into a shock loan move to The Toffees.
The England international has fallen behind Roberto Firmino and Dominic Solanke in the pecking order at Anfield this season and consequently he has been limited to just 5 league starts.
Considering the World Cup is nearly 6 months away, Sturridge will be concerned with his lack of first-team football, so he will surely be hoping to move away from Anfield in January in a bid to salvage his England career.
With that being said, here are two more reasons Everton should sign Daniel Sturridge in the January transfer window.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
