Everton fans discuss the possibility of signing Josh King from Bournemouth

Everton are being linked with a late move for Bournemouth attacker Josh King.

talkSPORT have claimed the Toffees could scupper West Ham United’s move for the Norway international, who looks highly likely to leave the south coast club before the October 16 domestic transfer deadline.

King’s contract with the Cherries expires next summer, and he is available for a cut-price fee.

West Ham are understood to have seen a £13 million bid rejected (Sky Sports), with Bournemouth wanting around £18 million.

talkSPORT say Everton could swoop for King after letting Moise Kean join Paris Saint-Germain on loan.

At the moment, Carlo Ancelotti has the red-hot Dominic Calvert-Lewin at his disposal, Richarlison who can play through the middle and Cenk Tosun, who is yet to make an appearance under the Italian.

There is arguably need for one more attacker and King is proven at Premier League level and versatile.

The star has scored 48 goals in 161 top-flight appearances and set up 15.

Having watched Nathan Ake, Ryan Fraser and Callum Wilson all leave the Vitality Stadium, it would be very surprising to see him stay put.

Everton fans gave a largely positive reaction to the notion of King joining their club on social media:
