Everton are having a nightmare of a season so far this time out, with manager Ronald Koeman already replaced and the club, as yet, failing to find a suitable replacement.
The Toffees lost star man Romelu Lukaku in the summer, but still went out and spent a fortune on new players, and many, including our landlord here at the Tavern, expected the blue half of Merseyside to be stronger contenders than they are looking so far.
However, January is on the horizon and despite not having a new manager in place at the time of writing, it represents a chance for Everton to further enhance their squad and go out and buy some quality players to hoist them up the table.
One man we think they should look to spend big on is current Celtic striker Moussa Dembele, who has built quite the reputation for himself in Scotland following his shock move from Fulham two years ago.
Dembele is a top young talent, but already looks good enough to grace the top flight in England and succeed. Everton’s loss of Lukaku has hit them harder than anyone could have imagined, and replacing his goals could be massive, with Dembele a viable contender to replace the Belgian.
He will cost big money, but Everton showed in the summer they are serious about competing with the big boys in the spending market, and a signing of someone like Dembele could be a huge statement of intent from the Goodison club as they look to improve their league position.
