Wilson in, Walcott benched: The perfect January business for Everton
Under Marco Silva, Everton have improved this season and look set to compete for a European spot.
But there are still a few concerns that need addressing in January to fully equip Everton for the second half of the campaign.
The form of Theo Walcott is one particular issue that Everton fans have been worried about.
Walcott usually starts on the right wing but his end product needs improvement.
Silva could use the January window to upgrade on the 29-year-old by bringing in a winger or a centre-forward.
Richarlison has been playing as a centre-forward with Bernard and Walcott on the flanks.
But if Everton signed a new striker, it would allow Richarlison to move back to the wing and it would force Walcott onto the bench.
Callum Wilson would be the ideal striker signing for Everton in the January transfer window.
The 26-year-old is now in the prime of his career and his tally of nine goals in 17 games this season will be turning some heads.
Wilson is renowned for his speed, strength and clever runs into the channel, making him a constant threat at Bournemouth.
The once-capped England international, who scored on his debut, is the perfect number 9 for Everton to build their squad around.
And the ex-Coventry man’s presence up front would allow Silva to deploy a lethal front three of Richarlison, Bernard and Wilson.
