Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Everton must recall Nathan Broadhead from Sunderland

The January transfer window is fast-approaching and Everton manager Rafa Benitez could be hard at work for the next few weeks in an attempt to bolster his squad.

His side are 14th in the Premier League table and have only amassed five wins from 17 matches thus far, highlighting their struggles on the pitch.

Whilst the club could dip into the market to source external solutions to some of their problems, as they are reportedly doing with Vitaliy Mykolenko, they could also find the answers they need from within.

Save millions

Benitez could save Everton millions by recalling forward Nathan Broadhead from his loan spell with Sunderland to improve his attacking options.

Demarai Gray is the only player with more than three Premier League goals and Salomon Rondon has only managed one strike in 11 matches. Dominic Calvert-Lewin has been restricted to three appearances this season and the Toffees have struggled to find a suitable replacement for him.

Do Everton need a new striker?

In Broadhead, the Spaniard may already have a solution to the side’s goalscoring woes within the club. They could recall him from his loan and offer him the chance to show what he can do in the first-team at Goodison Park, as he could save millions of pounds next month in the transfer window if he is able to make an impact.

Athletic journalist Patrick Boyland recently praised the young attacker for his form with the League One side. He Tweeted: “Nathan Broadhead excelling at Sunderland. Regular competitive games making world of difference but too good for League One really.”

The reporter added: A lot to like. Mobile, finishes well, can play across the front line.”

In the third tier this season, the 23-year-old has scored five goals in eight starts. He has also scored two times in three League Cup outings for the Black Cats, including a strike against Arsenal at The Emirates earlier this week.

He timed his run to perfection to beat £50m centre-back Ben White to the ball before delightfully dinking it over £19.2m shot-stopper Bernd Leno to pull a goal back for Sunderland in the match. It was his only shot of the game as The Gunners ran riot in a 5-1 win, showing that he can be clinical when a chance presents itself – against Premier League opposition.

Can you beat this impossible Everton quiz?! Starting off easy...

As shown by the figures spent on White and Leno, he was not up against – with all due respect – other players fresh out of the academy. He produced a moment of quality against top-flight opponents and Everton could use a player with his natural instinct for goals.

That is why Benitez could save the club millions in January by avoiding splashing out on a new striker and recalling the Welsh predator to give him an opportunity in the second half of the campaign.
