Everton fans here in the Tavern are extremely disappointed after their 2-1 loss to Burnley at the weekend, as inconsistencies continue to halt the progress of the Merseyside club.
The Toffees were hoping to improve on their demoralising 1-0 defeat to Watford in their last Premier League outing, but couldn’t manage to hold onto a one goal lead at Turf Moor as Burnley rallied back to pull off a 2-1 victory. Indeed, with evident improvements still required in the current Everton side, it appears that the club have already identified their main target for the summer transfer window, as according to reports in the Mirror, Everton are determined to sign Jamie Vardy from Leicester City.
The Toffees held a meeting last week to discuss their recruitment plans and it’s understood that Jamie Vardy tops that list. Indeed, much to the delight of many of our local Evertonians, it’s believed that the England international would jump at a chance to move to Goodison Park where he would get a hefty pay rise. And, Everton’s director of football Steve Walsh may just have the biggest part to play in the deal, after bringing the striker to the King Power Stadium during his time with Leicester City.
Indeed, the club’s interest in the 31-year-old has all stemmed from the Toffees’ inability to bring in a suitable replacement for Romelu Lukaku, as summer signing Cenk Tosun has failed miserably in his attempts to replicate the Belgian’s Merseyside magic. Although, the signing of Jame Vardy would be sure to make goalscoring woes a thing of the past for Everton, after seeing his goals bring the Foxes their first Premier League title back in 2016.
There’s no doubt that Jamie Vardy is one of the most established strikers in the Premier League, after firing the Foxes to a shock top-flight triumph. And, with the Toffees’ goalscoring woes constantly springing terror on the faces of many, the Englishman will be sure to iron over any underlying issues.
