Deal for Thorgan Hazard could halt Silva’s need for a striker

Deal for Thorgan Hazard could halt Silva’s need for a striker

As it stands, Everton don’t really have a top quality out and out striker despite playing summer recruit Richarlison through the middle in the last few games.

In Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Cenk Tosun, Everton have two strikers who will never become forwards who can score 20 or more goals in the Premier League. Marco Silva has played summer signing Richarlison through the middle in the last few games and it seems as though the youngster could well be a good fit as the club’s main forward.

Moreover, with Everton being linked with a move for Borussia Monchengladbach winger, Thorgan Hazard, who like his brother, is having a fantastic year.

The Breakdown

The Bundesliga attacker has turned himself into one of the best forwards in Germany over the last few years after a solid two-year spell with Belgian side Zulte Wargeem.

Last year in the Bundesliga he had a superb season as he scored 10 goals to go with eight assists in 34 league games. This year, he’s scored seven in all competitions while creating a further four.

Although he may not have the dribbling ability of his brother, his ability to score goals as well as create them is a trait that not many possess in Europe.

With Bernard on the left, Sigurrdson through the middle and Richarlison up front, Silva could have one of the most attacking team in Europe if he adds the Belgium international. The 25-year-old is valued at £22.5 million and could be a superb piece of business for the club, especially as he’s within the last two years of his deal.
