Everton will be pleased with yesterday’s performance in the Merseyside derby as they managed to keep Liverpool quiet and could have easily stolen all three points.
The Toffees’ main aim from here on in until the end of the season will be to secure a European spot, but it won’t be easy as consistency has been a big issue for them at times.
Marco Silva will need to strengthen in the summer and it appears as if he’s already weighing up a swoop, as according to Calciomercato (via HITC), Everton are in a battle to sign Edin Dzeko in the summer.
Everton are in desperate need of a striker after witnessing Cenk Tosun’s performances this season, so surely Dzeko’s potential arrival would be great for the Merseyside club.
Therefore, here are the potential consequences of signing Edin Dzeko in the summer…
PROVEN GOALSCORER ARRIVES
Cenk Tosun has been absolutely shocking in the current campaign as he just can’t seem to find his feet in front of goals, and he’s struggled to link up play and often loses the ball. The Toffees have deployed Dominic Calvert-Lewin at the pinnacle of the attack in recent times, but not even he’s been able to find the back of the net on a consistent basis.
Therefore, Silva can secure himself a proven goalscorer in the form of Dzeko as he’s managed to score 258 goals in 544 appearances in his career, which includes the 72 goals he scored during his time at Manchester City.
DOMINIC CALVERT-LEWIN ANNOYED
Dominic Calvert-Lewin has become Everton’s first-choice striker in recent times but he hasn’t quite been able to ensure consistency in front of goal, which has halted the Toffees’ progress slightly.
Indeed, Dzeko’s potential arrival could annoy Calvert-Lewin as he’s just starting to secure regular minutes in the side, so he could soon find himself back on the substitutes’ bench with all of his hard work undone as the Bosnian would inevitably be above him in the pecking order.
