The Everton fans in the Transfer Tavern are bemoaning the fact that they do not have a prolific goal scorer in their squad.
After losing Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United in the summer transfer window, Everton have struggled to replace his goals.
In the summer, Everton brought in Sandro Ramirez, who is still getting accustomed to life in England, and Wayne Rooney, who has been operating in a slightly deeper role.
This means that Ronald Koeman is likely to bring in a new striker in January.
The Dutchman has been weighing up a number of options, including Florin Andone and Olivier Giroud but a shock name has now emerged on Everton’s winter wishlist.
According to a report by The Sun, Everton are considering a swoop for Andy Carroll this January.
West Ham United striker Andy Carroll is on Koeman’s radar and a £20m bid is being lined up.
The former Liverpool forward has just returned to action for the Hammers and provides an aerial threat up front.
The injury-prone 28-year-old has eighteen months left on his current deal at West Ham and manager Slaven Bilic has challenged him to prove his fitness in order to earn an extension.
Everton could look to poach the 9-cap England international in January.
