Whenever we speak to the Everton fans here in the Transfer Tavern, they are telling us that they need a new striker.
They need a goal scorer to replace the void left when Romelu Lukaku joined Manchester United in the summer.
And the latest rumour is bound to get the fans off their seat.
According to an exclusive report by The Sun, Everton want to sign Alexis Sanchez this summer.
The Toffees are readying a £30m bid for the Arsenal contract rebel as they plot an ambitious swoop for the want-away attacker.
Able to play as a winger, central attacking midfielder or as a centre forward, Sanchez would almost guarantee goals but it remains to be seen whether he wants to swap The Emirates for Goodison Park.
The 28-year-old has been chased by the likes of Juventus, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain in recent times due to his precarious contract situation in North London.
The Chile international’s current deal expires in the summer and he has so far refused to pen an extension as he looks to manufacture a move away from Arsenal.
Everton, who spent heavily in the summer, will try to tempt Sanchez to Merseyside but a deal looks unlikely at this stage due to his wishes to play in the Champions League.
