Everton are not doing quite as well as many feel they should be this season under Marco Silva, with plenty of their big names failing to live up to expectations as it stands.
The pressure is building on the Toffees manager, who is struggling to get any sort of consistency from his squad, and there glaring gaps of quality in the starting XI which could well need to be addressed when the market opens in the summer.
One are we feel would be ideal to add to is up front, where the lack of a genuine number nine who can grab the goals is proving costly for Everton and Silva.
There are players out there though, and we here at the Tavern feel that signing Brentford striker Neal Maupay would be a smart move for the Merseysiders.
The French forward has been in superb form for the Bees this term, as he once again looks to top the goalscoring charts in the second tier.
Maupay has bags of quality in front of goal, but he is also a team player, something which is demonstrated in the amount of chances he lays on for his Brentford teammates on a weekly basis.
His speed, quick thinking, and lethal finishing mean that adapting to life in the Premier League shouldn’t be a problem for the Frenchman, and if Everton want to give him his chance in the top flight, there’s every chance their faith will be quickly repaid.
Everton fans, what do you think? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
