Everton considering ‘big offer’ for Jean-Kevin Augustin

Everton considering ‘big offer’ for Jean-Kevin Augustin

Everton are thought to use the January transfer window as an opportunity to bring a striker to Goodison Park to bolster their firepower.

The Toffees’ forwards have struggled to find the back of the net this season, leaving the likes of Richarlison to play as a front man at times this season.

Marco Silva is keen on trying to bring in an attacker that will help to relieve the pressure from the Brazil international and it appears he may have found his ideal candidate.

According to a report by France Football, via Sport Witness, Jean-Kevin Augustin has become a target for the Premier League outfit.

The Red Bull Leipzig striker has scored six goals in all competitions so far this season and it is being claimed that Silva is ‘planning to make a big offer’ for the 21-year-old.

The Verdict:

Everton certainly need to find some reliable firepower from a frontman and that could come in the form of Augustin.

The 21-year-old has shown how lethal he can be in front of goal for the Bundesliga outfit this season, however, a move could be difficult for Silva to manufacture.

Considering Leipzig’s efforts in trying to take Ademola Lookman on a permanent deal continued to stumble, the Germans may decide to play hard-ball with Everton for Augustin in the winter.
