Everton have made a disappointing start to the 2019/20 season.
The Toffees are languishing in 16th in the Premier League table, and have already dismissed Marco Silva.
Duncan Ferguson is in charge on a temporary basis, with speculation rife that Carlo Ancelotti will be next in the managerial hot seat.
Everton find themselves in the position they’re in thanks, in-part, to their lack of a cutting edge in the final third.
They have scored just 20 goals in 17 games so far – a team like Everton, with the quality they have on paper, should have been more potent.
Moise Kean in particular has had a rough start to life at Goodison Park, with his worst moment coming at Old Trafford when Ferguson substituted him off just 18 minutes after bringing him on.
It has increased speculation the teenager could leave on loan next month (Daily Star) – and if that were to happen, then perhaps there’s a La Liga-based replacement that could be of interest.
TBR’s view – Everton should make Jovic move
According to Calciomercato, Real Madrid could allow striker Luka Jovic to leave the Bernabeu on loan in January after a poor start at his new club.
Jovic transferred to the Spanish heavyweights from Eintracht Frankfurt for big money, but has found minutes hard to come by with Karim Benzema in fine form.
Any departure for Kean would hurt a lot of Everton fans, but Jovic coming in would help ease their pain.
Before moving to Real, Jovic had plundered 27 goals in just 45 appearances for Eintracht.
Everton have been rather toothless so far, but Jovic – who needs a change of environment – could be a solid piece of business.
