Allardyce reportedly keen on raiding former club to improve struggling Everton

Everton fans here in the Tavern aren’t liking what they’re seeing from their side in recent times, with some sloppy results causing for further improvements in the transfer window.

Sam Allardyce has redefined the Blues’ season after early trouble had them heading for a relegation dogfight, as the 63-year-old continues to create minor improvements at Goodison Park. However, there’s even more progress to be made, in the eyes of our resident Evertonians.

According to reports in the Mail Online, Everton are eyeing up loan moves for Baba Rahman and Patrick Van Aanholt with an overhaul still required on Merseyside.

Indeed, in a left-back position that currently only holds the ever-reliable Leighton Baines, he’s looking to provide in the form of these two promising left-sided defenders.

Although, it looks as if Patrick Van Aanholt is looking the more likely addition of the two, as Baba Rahman has been offered the chance to make a return to the Bundesliga with Schalke.

On the other hand, the Palace player may be the better option in reality, as a former client of Sam Allardyce from his time as Sunderland and Palace boss. And, with the Eagles sharing an interest in Everton forward Oumar Niasse, perhaps some sort of deal can be achieved between the two clubs.

Nevertheless, in a defence that’s struggled to keep the opposition at bay this season, the addition of one of these two men could go a long way to securing what is a leaky Everton defence.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

The addition of the Dutchman would work wonders for this Everton side, and may even give Baines a run for his money. Offering pace and an incredible attacking intent, which is an area that the Englishman lacks in his performances.

Whereas, Baba Rahman looks to be too out of reach with Inter Milan and Schalke leading the way in terms of recruiting the defender.
