Everton know they badly need to improve if they want to remain in contention for seventh position in the Premier League.
That’s a place that could potentially allow them again to compete in the Europa League next season – depending on the FA Cup success of the top six – but after a poor run of form, that now seems like a big ask.
Marco Silva hasn’t had the best of starts at Goodison Park, certainly not the one he would have wanted anyway.
He hasn’t been helped by the inconsistency of his players on the pitch either, something he could do with changing given the chance in the summer.
Forward players seem to be very necessary additions for Everton and a player who may do very well with a move to England is Borussia Dortmund’s, Jacob Bruun Larsen.
Larsen, (who is valued at £18 million on Transfermarkt) has found opportunities rare this season for the Bundesliga table-toppers.
Since the arrival of winger Jason Sancho has revamped the way in which Borussia Dortmund play, Larsen has made just 12 starts in all competitions, whilst compiling three goals and two assists.
The 20-year-old was extremely highly-rated coming through the youth system with Dortmund, where he was a persistent threat in-front of goal and regularly scoring.
Now, a move away would probably be considered best for his development and although young, he could have what it takes to be a hit in England.
He can play on either wing and through the middle as an attacking-midfielder, giving Everton further chances to embed him within their side.
Some may think that Everton already have enough wingers and quantity they may have but quality is another issue.
Jacob Bruun Larsen would be a fix and a potential star if given the opportunity at Goodison Park.
