Everton must look to hijack West Ham's Olivier Giroud swoop
Marco Silva’s Everton have struggled for consistency at the start of the new Premier League season and the lack of a top-class striker has been clear.
The Toffees failed to replace Romelu Lukaku after his move to Manchester United last summer, waiting until January to land Cenk Tosun from Besiktas and seeing the Turkey international struggle for form in English football.
Hovering in mid-table and needing a boost if they are to seal a return to European football next season, Silva needs to be eyeing a move for a new striker in January and should spring into action to beat West Ham in the market.
The Mirror reports Manuel Pellegrini’s side are considering a move for Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud, whose future at Stamford Bridge is uncertain as he is yet to score this season and faces competition for a starting spot with Alvaro Morata.
At 32-years-old, Giroud is in the twilight years of his career but the France World Cup winner would be the ideal short-term solution to Everton’s striking woes and could be the missing link to the Toffee’s attack.
With Gylfi Sigurdsson, Richarlison and Theo Walcott amongst those providing support, Giroud would have plenty of opportunities to score regularly and rekindle his Premier League career.
