The laziest of lazy journalism. 
 

“Everton football club need a striker. There’s a striker called Everton. Quick, there’s an article to be written!”

Actually this one is quite good, but is another winger. Perhaps if we move Theo, this guy would be perfect fit. Not sure Everton would be comming to Everton though. There are a lot of clubs interested right now.

If there is any truth to this rumour then I hope he didn't catch the game last night and isn't aware of where we are in the table.

He was being touted for CL teams not long ago. I saw he’s a winger but pretty sure I’ve read elsewhere that he can play as a forward, like Richarlison. Both of them on either side of DCL or Kean could be formidable

Got pace skill can score goals what more do you want move Walcott on I think he's a lot younger than Theo

He’s 23, so yes much younger. Good age and looks dangerous

He is vastly over valued by his club 

Also yes. Allegedly asking something like 40m US. Of course if he’s another Richarlison then utd will be buying him off us for 80 in no time.

Not a completely ludicrous price, but hard for me to imagine that we're looking to add more wide attacking players.  Another bloke did a blog post recently about Ancelotti's initial signings when at a new club, almost exclusively focuses on the "spine" and almost never buys wide attackers.  Will post the link if I can find it.

 

Edit: found the lnk

As any competent manager would. From day one I was worried about Silva spunking our budget on a winger from his former club, more so when he had just been managing Doucoure who'd have added some steel we were missing.

We had steel in Gana and he added class in Gomes. Nothing wrong with that. If you still think we are better off without Gana then I’m really not sure what you are watching.

Gana had energy not steel, really don't see how a headless chicken would have helped if anything we'd have been even lower.

One of a forward three. Not an out and out striker.

No, Richarlison is a winger being played as a striker, its a proper striker we need not another winger.

 

regardless of what anyone calls it, in the 442 richarlison is played as a striker.  therefore we have only 2 wingers bernard and walcott.  walcott is crap.  we need another winger.

I think what we are saying is that if he plays this formation then if we had another viable striker he would be a winger!

Richy would be playing his natural position on the Wing not in the middle.

I personally think Richarlison is much better as a striker when he’s got a partner. If we’re after another striker, I’d like it to be a partner for him. I’d prefer we get a winger to replace Walcott.

i don't see the big need for  CB, mina is excellent and holgate is doing well, keane a fine backup.  CM yes, but we have no RW other than walcott, yet pepole want a CB we have 3.

Have played with 3 at the back at points this year.  Also what if Mina or Holgate gets injured...  Serious lack of depth in the position.  Not saying we need to buy the best in the world (that would be nice though) but unless Gibson starts making the bench (which has not all season), we could use a body.

Richarlison DCL

Bernard                           Soares

Gomes Gbamin

Starts to look a bit better doesn't it? When everyone is fit mind you

What’s even better is 

richarlison           DCL             Soares 

       Rabiot      Gbamin    Gomes 

 

Fingers crossed

Harsh on Bernard that though!

I like bernard, I really do but he just doesn’t contribute enough telling moments. He is an Assist’s kind of player but just doesn’t effect enough game changing moments to make up for his lack of goals. Richarlison can score out of nowhere, I don’t have that feeling with Bernard.

i think he needs an actual run out of games (do i sound like @Matt or what?).  he's played here and there but has gotten injured or different managers and benched.  he needs to be the starting LW and i think we will see him shine.

Unlucky mate. Look at it this way, the only way is up!

Iwobi can play right wing. If they fancy Gordon as a player then brining another player to come in ahead of him won't help.  

In my opinion the spine of the team is more important than a winger when we can have players come in and do a job. Finding an elite centre back or midfielder is a lot harder to find in January than a winger though. Overall I'd rather we sign the right player rather then someone just for a bit of cover.

Apart from thinking it’d be amazing to have a player called Everton I feel absolutely nothing about this possible (probable?) signing. 

He can play a bit, before this season I thought he would go to one of the big boys. Will add goals and end product. At worst - added depth to the wings behind bernard/Charlie.
