It’s blindingly obvious that Everton are lacking a number nine. The fans know it and now it finally seems the club know it. So, Charles-Jesaja Herrmann could be the striker Goodison Park has been waiting for.
The 19-year-old has impressed for Wolfsburg under 19s scoring 12 and assisting seven in all competitions. He’s tall, strong and quick and that’s exactly what Marco Silva needs in a striker to play his style of football.
Turkish Football claimed Everton, Newcastle and Celtic are all fighting it out for his signature, so it’s hoped the Toffees’ project can tempt him to Merseyside. Silva’s got a track record of giving youngsters a chance, and Herrmann could be next up.
Everton have lacked a number nine since they sold Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United and the fans would be so excited to finally see a goalscorer come through the door. He’ll need to adapt quickly though, but he’s young and should play without any fear.
He’d be able to link with Everton’s wingers by arriving in the box at the right time, but also by working hard to create space and goals for when his teammates cut in. He seems perfect for the fast, attacking football Marco Silva is hoping to produce.
The Goodison faithful need a striker to get excited about, and at his age, he could be their main man for years and take them back into Europe. He’s exactly what the squad has been crying out for, so the club must win the transfer battle and bring him to the Premier League.
