Everton have turned things around under new boss Sam Allardyce, with the Toffees looking increasingly likely to secure a top half finish this season.
Fans here in The Transfer Tavern have taken extremely well to the former England boss, who has wasted no time in making his own mark on the squad at Goodison Park through the £27 million acquisition of Besiktas striker, Cenk Tosun. Our landlord caught up with the Scouse contingent over a game of pool to discuss the Everton squad, and where Allardyce must now turn his attention towards. Fans are happy with the summer signing of Michael Keane, but are keen to see a new partner at the back sourced this month, with Ashley Williams and Phil Jagielka entering the final years of their long careers. Our landlord had a think, and suggested a potential move for Senegalese defender, Salif Sane.
The Hannover 96 star has been one of the standout performers of the Bundesliga this season, with the centre-half dominating at the back for Die Roten. At the age of 27 Sane is entering the peak years of his career, and his form this term is exhibiting just how on top of his game the player is. Ready for a big switch, Everton must make sure they are at the front of the queue for the French-born defender, who will undoubtedly be attracting attention from across the European game due to his mesmerising form.
Sane is a top talent with the ability to command the back line at Goodison Park, and after adapting to the demands of German football following his 2013 move from Nancy, the player should take to the English game like a duck to water. You never know, he could even become the best Sane in the North West…
