The Everton fans in the Transfer Tavern are starting to feel a bit better about the complexion of their campaign.
Indeed, the Toffees in the Tavern have been frustrated to see the club struggle to improve despite huge money spent over the course of the summer, though two wins on the bounce have certainly helped lighten the mood.
So, reports emanating out of Italy have truly gone down a storm amongst our resident Evertonians. According to Tuttomercatoweb, the Merseyside club are strongly pressing to sign Paris Saint-Germain Edinson Cavani, after missing out on Diego Costa.
Ronald Koeman’s lack of a proper central striker has been hotly discussed in our bar of late and the mere idea of seeing the Uruguayan marksman arrive at Goodison Park has seriously excited our punters. It’s claimed that Everton are pushing for a meeting with the French giants in order to start the process of trying to land the former Napoli man, who would be a serious coup for the club.
The riches available to Premier League clubs, especially Everton, is well-documented. However, though the Neymar/Kylian Mbappe signings in the French capital may make life difficult for him, surely Cavani is a Champions League level striker.
That may make the deal difficult to do.
