Should Everton target summer move for Manchester City fringe player?

Everton should consider moving for Manchester City star Gabriel Jesus this summer.

The Brazilian ace was once again left on the bench against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

Jesus has actually made as many as 42 appearances for the Citizens this term, but seldom does he ever get the nod as a starter from Pep Guardiola due to the quality of Sergio Aguero.

Of those 42 appearances, he has only eight league starts to his name and four in the Champions League.

El Chiringuito TV report that several Manchester City first-teamers could demand a move this summer, with Jesus being one.

Perhaps Everton should be considering moving for the striker given their troubles scoring goals this season.

 

TBR’s view

The Toffees have had a hard time scoring this year – as evidenced by an uninspiring 42 strikes in 34 Premier League games – and need to consider bringing in a reliable source for goals this summer.

Jesus would arguably be a great acquisition – despite his lack of game time, the youngster has still managed to score 19 in all competitions this season.

That’s more than any of Everton’s current attackers.

With Bernard and Richarlison in their ranks already, a move to Goodison Park might be somewhat enticing for Jesus, who would certainly be handed the regular game time he craves.

He would not come cheap – City would likely expect a far greater fee for Jesus than the £27 million (The Daily Mail) it took to prise him away from Palmeiras in January 2017.
