Which striker should Everton prioritise in January?

Everton are sat precariously close to the Premier League relegation places, and if Carlo Ancelotti comes in, he will want to make some moves in January. The Toffees have been linked with several big-names, but which striker should Everton prioritise?

Luka Jovic

Serbian striker Luka Jovic has struggled since his move to Real Madrid in the summer. He has scored just one goal for the club, struggling for opportunities behind Karim Benzema. Everton should explore the possibility of bringing him in on loan for the rest of the season with the promise of first-team football.

A powerful striker who is deadly in the air and with his feet, Jovic could prove a deadly addition for Everton. His record at Eintracht Frankfurt last season speaks for itself, and he has the qualities to excel in the Premier League.

Zlatan. A man who needs no introduction. Currently a free agent, he would cost nothing in transfer fees and could prove to be a great mentor for the faltering Moise Kean.

Reports have suggested that Ancelotti could make Zlatan his first signing at Everton (Daily Mail). The 38-year-old has made an impact at every team he has played for, most recently at LA Galaxy.

 

The Swedish striker scored 52 goals in 56 games for the American side, proving that he has still got the goalscoring touch. Despite his age, he would improve the goalscoring threat that Everton currently poses.

Morelos is quickly making himself a fans favourite at Rangers despite his controversial nature. He has scored an impressive 21 goals in 19 starts for the Scottish side this season, including eight in the Europa League.

Rangers will not want to let go of the Colombian, and he is enjoying life in Scotland at the moment. However, the pull of the Premier League could tempt him into a move if assurances were made over first-team football.

Taking everything into account, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is probably the best option for Everton. He will have an instant impact on the pitch and could prove to be a valuable personality in the dressing room.

There is little risk because of the absence of a transfer fee. Also, his experience could prove vital in the development of young strikers Moise Kean and Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
