Rebic would be a major upgrade on Walcott for Everton

Everton have reportedly set their sights on Eintracht Frankfurt attacker Ante Rebic.

It has been claimed by Calciomercato that the Toffees are keen on bringing the Croatian World Cup finalist to Goodison Park this summer.

Rebic has made 27 appearances in total for the Bundesliga outfit this term, scoring nine and assisting three.

He has been a mainstay for the high-flying side and has continued his impressive form from the World Cup, in which he helped Croatian reach the final against France.

Apparently Everton see Rebic as a potential way to add goals to their attack, which has been relatively toothless this season.


A Walcott upgrade

While neither Bernard nor Theo Walcott have been sparkling this season, it is the Englishman who has been particularly poor.

The former Arsenal winger has struggled to show consistency following his £20 million move (Sky Sports) from the Emirates Stadium.

This term he’s made 33 appearances and scored just four goals and made two assists, recording an average match rating of 6.50 (via WhoScored).

By contrast, Rebic has earned an average rating of 7.04 in the Bundesliga and has looked much more of a threat for a Frankfurt side that are chasing a Champions League place.

Aged just 25, Rebic is yet to even reach his peak whereas Walcott’s best days are undoubtedly behind him.
