Everton must prioritise signing a top class forward to lead their line during the summer transfer window
The Toffees have been inconsistent during Marco Silva’s spell at the club but the Portuguese has lacked a quality striker to spearhead their attack. The Blues have struggled to replace Romelu Lukaku who departed for Manchester United for around £75m. Silva has opted to use Richarlison as the central forward with Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Cenk Tosun struggling thus far.
Everton fans will hope director of football Marcel Brands can work his magic again when the transfer window opens in a few months time. Signing a quality forward will be top of his priority list. With a new stadium in the works, budget may be limited but offloading fringe players should bolster their finances.
One man Brands could target is Birmingham hotshot – Che Adams. Valued at just £2.25m by Transfermarkt, the Englishman has been on fire in the Championship so far this season. His impressive performances have not gone unnoticed with a host of Premier League clubs keeping tabs on his situation – Everton should enter the race for his signature.
Adams has been lethal in front of goal this season – scoring 19 times already in the league as well as registering four assists. The 22-year-old possesses blistering pace which makes him a nightmare for defenders to deal with; his intelligent runs off the last defender will be perfect for Glyfi Sigurdsson. The former Sheffield United man has the strength to deal with the physicality of England’s top division and to lead the line effectively at Goodison Park.
Whilst signing a player from the Championship may be risky, Adams has all the makings of a Premier League star.
