The Everton fans gathered inside the Transfer Tavern are excited for the new season to start under Marco Silva, a manager they have desired for months and months now.
So far a lack of transfer activity has happened in and out of the club as the Toffees wait for their players to arrive back from the World Cup. However, Marco Silva will quickly look to make his mark and improve Everton fans’ confidence even more as they build a stronger team that could push for Europe. A player that would definitely help achieve that ambition is RB Leipzig star Emil Forsberg, (valued at £22.5 million on Transfermarkt) and our punters are desperate for Everton to do all they can to bring him to England.
The Swedish star is currently on duty at the World Cup and having scored the winner in their round of 16 clash with Switzerland, fans are hoping that Everton launch an audacious move for the 26-year-old. The RB Leipzig stars season was largely halted by injuries but still, he managed 5 goals and four assists in all competitions.
Whether the Toffees sign him or not should be based on the form he showed the season prior, as Forsberg notched up 8 goals and a staggering 22 assists. The Toffees are well aware that their midfield and creative forward options could be improved and that’s exactly what the Swede would bring to the club. As well as a poor defence, Everton could improve their attacking play wisely with the signing of Emil Forsberg, which would certainly be considered as a great move.
