Marco Silva is battling to find consistency at Everton after a rather lacklustre start to life at Goodison Park, where they have won just twice in the league.
The Toffees are still crying out for a top-class striker to fill the void left by Romelu Lukaku’s sale to Manchester United last season and the evidence suggests there is nobody within the squad capable of stepping up.
While Gylfi Sigurdsson, Theo Walcott and Richarlison have proved their worth from wide positions, the central players in the squad are struggling to kick on and it is an area Silva needs to address in January.
Departures from Merseyside are likely and Everton must look to capitalise on Galatasaray’s reported interest in Oumar Niasse, who Fanatik states ‘shook hands’ on a move to Turkey during the summer transfer window.
The 28-year-old is yet to start this season and has instead played just 48 minutes of Premier League football as a substitute, so it is pretty clear he is way down the pecking order in Silva’s eyes.
On a reported £55k-a-week at the club, Everton could find a better use for those funds with a move for a more clinical forward who can be the missing link for Silva’s side.
