Form has definitely been temporary this season but Everton have really started to turn up the performance levels in recent weeks, something that is very pleasing for their fans.
Marco Silva has finally seen his team deliver some performances that he can be proud of, just as fans were perhaps beginning to lose hope in the Portuguese boss. It hasn’t been a season to remember for you lot, but a big summer could change everything ahead of next season.
No one needs telling that this summer remains a very important period for the club to strengthen and the Toffees will be one side most definitely getting straight down to business in order to make improvements to their team. With huge backing available, it’s time Everton started being taken seriously as one of the most upwardly mobile outfits in Europe.
Clearly, a clinical striker will surely again be at the top of their shopping list, much most clubs, and a good option for them could be Fiorentina’s Giovanni Simeone, previously mentioned as a potential option by former Everton man Don Hutchinson on Twitter, via HITC.
Simeone, (who is valued at £20.7 million on Transfermarkt) is a player who has been capped by Argentina six times, a demonstration of how far he’s come in the last few seasons.
His club form could definitely be described as eye-catching, with Simeone bagging 15 goals last season, whilst laying on seven goals and six assists in all competitions this season. Despite reported target Salomon Rondon obviously having the history of playing in the Premier League, long-term Everton may find a far better striker option in Simeone, due to the fact he is only 23.
The Argentinian forward is more of a team player and by interlinking with the likes of Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson, more chances could be created for the whole team, not just Simeone.
It could take a large fee to acquire him but with long-term in mind, Simeone may excel and then possess a far bigger value in the market. Ultimately, that’s what Everton need.
Everton fans, would you back a move for Simeone? Join the discussion by commenting below…
