Everton spent big over the summer, and it’s paying off. With big names like Richarlison and Yery Mina brought to the club, alongside loans for the likes of Andre Gomes and Kurt Zouma, it’s fair to say that Marco Silva has been well and truly backed by his new club.
That said, a few more major signings certainly wouldn’t hurt.
The Toffees had a slow start to the season, but they’ve shown in recent weeks that they’re good enough to compete at the highest level. Are they yet good enough to challenge for European football, though?
Well, that’s tough to say, but if Marco Silva brought in a couple more genuinely world-class players then they’d certainly be in with a chance.
A little more strength in depth in certain areas could bode well for the Toffees, and that could give Silva the fire he needs to go to the next level.
With that said, Silva would be able to lead Everton into the top-six if he lands these 2 stars in January…
Perhaps not the most well-known of the Hazard brother, Eden Hazard’s brother Thorgan has enjoyed a brilliant season so far for Borussia Monchengladbach.
In just 10 games, he’s bagged 7 goals and 3 assists, putting him right in contention as being one of Europe’s most in-form forwards alongside Eden Hazard.
Everton have a lot of quality on the flanks, but more of that wouldn’t hurt. Bernard’s start to the season has been mixed, whilst Richarlison has enjoyed a decent role through the middle lately.
Either way, Everton would undoubtedly be improved if they were to sign Thorgan Hazard.
When you think of lethal Argentian forwards, you’d have more than a few choices. You could have your pick between the likes of Carlos Tevez, Lionel Messi or Gonzalo Higuain – but you’re forgetting another lethal attacker called Emiliano Sala.
The forward has bagged a stunning 10 goals in just 9 league starts this season, earmarking himself as one of Europe’s most lethal forwards.
Everton are lacking a top-tier forward, and they could just find it in Sala.
At 28-years-old, the Nantes man is in the prime of his career, and he’d guarantee goals – at least judging by his recent record.
