Everton supporters in the Transfer Tavern were again left significantly underwhelmed by their side after seeing the Toffees draw 1-1 at Brighton on Sunday, a result which leaves the club 16th in the Premier League and just two points clear of the bottom three.
The Merseyside outfit went into their clash with the Seagulls last weekend having mustered just two victories from their opening seven matches, and they looked set for a fourth defeat of the campaign when Anthony Knockaert gave Chris Hughton’s men the lead with just eight minutes of the game remaining. However, the Toffees did somewhat ease the pressure on under-fire boss Ronald Koeman by levelling proceedings in the final minute, with Wayne Rooney slotting home a penalty following Bruno’s foul on Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Nonetheless, it was yet another lacklustre display from Koeman’s men and one which has not inspired confidence among our resident Toffees fans, but it seems that the club are seeking to put things right in January given that they are reportedly interested in bringing Atletico Madrid’s Kevin Gameiro to Goodison Park.
The 30-year-old moved to the Spanish capital last year yet, despite bagging 16 goals last season, has struggled for first team football this time round, playing just 27 minutes of action in La Liga for Diego Simeone’s side.
And, as such, the Frenchman’s future at the club has been subject to speculation in recent times, and reports suggest that Everton are seeking to bring him to the Premier League in a bid to solve their striking crisis.
And were the Toffees able to land the £21.6 million-rated ace (as per Transfermarkt) in January, here is how their formidable front line could look come February 1…Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
