Should Everton be going after reborn Southampton ace this summer?

Everton could do with investing in a new wide player this summer.

The Toffees have been toothless in attack at times this season, with little help coming from the wings.

The 30-year-old is no longer a regular under Marco Silva, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin replacing Richarlison as the lone striker, and the Brazilian moving out to the right.

In recent weeks Everton have been linked with a move for Ajax winger David Neres, but a number of clubs are said to be circling the Brazilian after a brilliant season for the Amsterdam club.

Perhaps Everton should take a look at a player who has improved massively down at Southampton lately as a cheaper alternative.

 

TBR’s view

Nathan Redmond has been like a new player for the Saints following the appointment of Ralph Hasenhuttl in December.

The Englishman scored twice against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday during the 3-1 win, taking his tally to eight for the season.

All eight of those goals have come during the Hasenhuttl era, as have all three of his assists.

Redmond is one of Southampton’s most dangerous players and would represent a big upgrade on Walcott if Everton were to pounce.

The winger has been with the Saints since 2016 and Everton could be a good move for him for the next stage of his career.
