The Times have Everton fans looking towards our landlord for the latest bit of gossip today in the Football Transfer Tavern as the Toffees could well be set to make a move for two forwards.
According to Everton boss Roberto Martinez, they are in need of at least a couple of players and it seems that Samuel Eto’o and Manchester United forward Danny Welbeck are on his wishlist.
The Toffees want to add one of the strikers to their ranks before the transfer window slams shut on September 1st.
As one of our punters note over a pint, we think that Welbeck is on his way out of Old Trafford and with the arrival of Angel Di Maria imminent there is clearly no place for the forward and Louis van Gaal is more than willing to let him go for the right price.
One link we were initially shocked at was Eto’o to Everton, with the wage demands from the former Chelsea forward certainly higher than we would have expected the Toffees to pay or indeed even consider.
Everton fans. Would you like to see Welbeck at the club? Do you think a one year deal for Eto’o is worth it? Let us know your thoughts below.
