Reports in the Sunday Mirror (April 22nd, page 64), confirmed that PSV Director of Football Marcel Brands will be at Everton next season, an impressive acquisition that will also grease the chains for PSV players to replicate his move to Goodison Park.
Chief among these Eredivisie stars is Mexican international Hirving Lozano, a prolific winger that would slot in seamlessly at Everton.
At just 22 years of age, Lozano is enjoying a dream season at PSV, leading many to wonder if it is time to make the step up to the Premier League.
The winger has scored a stunning 16 goals and provided eight assists to date this season, making him second-top scorer in the division. Lozano’s unparalleled offensive contribution has led PSV to the Eredivisie title.
Even more impressive, Lozano’s remarkable season has come in his debut year in Europe. He signed for the Dutch club from Mexican side Pachuca in June 2017 and has taken Holland by storm in his first year abroad.
This knack for adapting to a new, unfamiliar environment is what makes the Mexican international a perfect fit for a move to Everton. The winger has shown he is not phased by a change of scenery and will be tipped to hit the ground running at Goodison Park.
Lozano is deadly when stationed on the left side of a front three, constantly cutting inside on his preferred right foot and unleashing unerring finishes past despairing goalkeepers.
His trademark acceleration and devastating dribbling skills are Lozano’s best features and will provide constant headaches for Premier League backlines.
With Brands set to be announced as Everton’s new Director of Football, the Merseyside will benefit from a distinct advantage in the continental race to sign Hirving Lozano.
The Mexican star would prove to be a famous signing for the Toffees, offering a superior alternative to the maddeningly inconsistent Yannick Bolasie on the left wing.
