Everton’s transfer window has been a rather downplayed affair with the Toffees lacking the necessary finances to spend large sums.
An accumulative sum of £1.7m has been spent on four new players and it feels unlikely that they’ll broaden their horizons too much beyond that.
Everton are still planning on making a few signings before the deadline closes in just under a week’s time.
One of those acquisitions could be a player they had on a trial basis a few years ago; Daniel Jebbison.
The Merseyside outfit were interested in signing the teenager a few months ago and it now looks as though they’re ramping up their pursuit.
However, that offer has sadly been rejected.
Back in 2016 Everton signed a certain Dominic Calvert-Lewin from Sheffield United.
It took a while for the striker to find his feet at Goodison Park but he was in electric form last season, starring in a central role on his way to scoring 21 goals in all competitions.
After being signed for a mere £1.5m, he has proven to be an absolute bargain.
He is now a full England international and has started this term as he ended the last; in the goals.
Calvert-Lewin has two in two games and although he’s a unique talent, Jebbison would be looking to follow in his footsteps.
The Canada international burst onto the scene last season in a struggling Sheffield United side, scoring on his first start for the club at Goodison Park.
It remains to be seen just how much potential the striker has in his locker but Everton have already enjoyed enormous success by recruiting from Bramall Lane.
This would be a low-risk addition and one that would prove that Finch Farm is still a place to learn your trade after the loss of Thierry Small.
