Everton eyeing red-hot 27-goal Leeds man amid Lukaku saga

Everton fans are quietly enjoying the sheer quantity of transfer links between their club and strikers, even though they appear to be coming off the back of Romelu Lukaku’s contract saga, and Football Insider have named Chris Wood as a player now being considered.

The New Zealander has been in red-hot form for Leeds this season, netting 27 goals in all competitions as the Whites push for promotion back to the Premier League.

This form has seemingly alerted Everton, with Football Insider claiming that the Toffees are looking at him.

Even though the bulk of his career has been spent in the Football League, the Oceanic star is rated at £15m by the Elland Road club, who may find it hard to persuade him to stay on for another campaign if they do miss out on promotion.

As well as Wood, Everton have been aligned with Giovanni Simeone and Wayne Rooney, with Lukaku having reportedly informed the club that he has no intention of renewing his Goodison Park contract.

Leeds’ Chris Wood is ideally suited to the Premier League – agee?
