Everton haven’t been able to ensure consistency in recent times, which has had a negative impact on their push for a European spot as Wolves now occupy seventh position.
The Toffees already have arguably one of the strongest squads outside of the top six at their disposal, but reinforcements would definitely be helpful in attacking areas.
Interestingly, it appears as if the Merseyside club already have a possible addition in their sights, as according to the Guardian, Everton have held talks with Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi over a permanent deal.
It’s understood that Everton are attempting to sign Michy Batshuayi on a permanent deal from Chelsea, with the 25-year-old expected to cost around £35 million.
Batshuayi spent the first half of this season on loan at Valencia but has failed to make an appearance since the start of this month as his loan club attempt to cut short his loan deal.
And, much to the delight of supporters, the Merseyside club are confident that an agreement can be reached before today’s transfer window deadline.
Indeed, the Belgian ace has already displayed his goalscoring qualities in the Premier League during his time at Stamford Bridge, so the Toffees won’t have to worry about a repeat of Cenk Tosun’s time at Goodison Park.
Michy Batshuayi, who is valued at £27 million (by Transfermarkt), could be the man to replace Cenk Tosun at Goodison Park after witnessing his woeful performances in front of goal.
The Belgian can definitely score goals but he just hasn’t been able to secure regular minutes in recent years, which makes a £35 million move seem rather unreasonable.
