Everton manager Marco Silva is already a man under pressure it would seem, and a few more bad results could well see the former Watford man moved on from Goodison Park.
The Toffees, currently sitting in ninth, have spent a small fortune in recent seasons, and with that come expectation, and at the moment, those expectations are not really being met.
The January window has just passed us by too, and we here in the Tavern feel the club might well regret not making a move for a couple of players who have been impressing down in the Championship.
And one man we feel the Toffees should have gone all out to sign is Brentford striker Neal Maupay, who has been in fine form for the Bees, knocking in 17 goals already in the second tier.
The French striker has developed in the past year to become one of the most feared performers down in the Championship, and a move to the top flight is something which is looking increasingly inevitable.
However, Everton chose not to make their move, and with only 36 goals to their name this term, adding someone like Maupay would have gone a long way to appeasing some of the problems they seem to have in finding a regular striker who can stick the ball in the back of the net.
Maupay has all the tools to become a top striker at the top level, and he’s one that Everton will be hoping they look back on and don’t regret making a move for.
Toffees fans, what do you think? Would Maupay have been a good addition? Let us know in the comments!Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
