Not many Everton fans will be pleased with their side’s recent form and Marco Silva’s team selection has been an issue too, with Theo Walcott and Cenk Tosun still receiving minutes.
Of course, it’s obvious that the Toffees need to bring in reinforcements in attacking areas as they’ve struggled to get the best out of a number of attackers in recent times, so the summer transfer window could prove key.
Interestingly, it appears as if the Merseyside club have their eye on an attacker, as according to Calciomercato, Everton are interested in PSV Eindhoven’s Joel Piroe.
Worryingly, Juventus are already in talks with the youngster who is available on a free transfer in the summer, but Marcel Brands could hold the key to a potential deal for Everton as he took up the role of sporting director at the Dutch club prior to his move to the Premier League.
Many fans won’t be aware of Joel Piroe’s qualities but he’s quickly established himself as one of the most promising attackers at the Dutch club, having produced an impressive 12 goals in 25 appearances with the Under-21 side.
Indeed, the 19-year-old could quite easily become a Goodison Park hero if Brands manages to bring him to the Premier League as he has one quality that not many of the Toffees’ current batch of attackers are showing, which is the ability to find the back of the net on a consistent basis. He’s a well-rounded striker who could excite Everton fans as he has the ability to operate on either wing, with the pace and skill to pose a constant threat.
One slight worry is that Marco Silva hasn’t exactly turned to youth in the current campaign, so his chances may be limited for now.
Everton fans, would you like to see Piroe rock up at Goodison Park?
