Everton have been somewhat toothless in attack at times this season.
Following an encouraging start to the season, Marco Silva’s side began to struggle to break teams down.
After 31 Premier League games, Everton have scored 43 goals which is not particularly inspiring.
If Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson aren’t on their games, then the team do have difficulty breaking teams down and putting the ball in the back of the net.
There isn’t much support coming from out wide, with Bernard and Theo Walcott having registered just seven league assists between them.
That is a disappointing return and could explain why Everton have been unable to create more chances.
Perhaps Silva can address the issue by targeting someone who hasn’t had any trouble being creative this season.
Bournemouth’s Ryan Fraser has been in sizzling form for the south coast side having scored six goals and laid on 10 assists in the league.
To put his creativity into perspective, Lionel Messi leads the way across Europe’s top five leagues with 14 assists.
He’s up there with the very best this term, and the diminutive Scotland international is still years away from his peak at the age 25.
Fraser can be electric on his day and is extremely difficult to keep tabs on due to his low centre of gravity.
Where Walcott can be quite predictable, Fraser is anything but.
The livewire will enter into the final year of his contract at the Vitality Stadium after this summer, and the Toffees could do worse than to test the waters.
