This is an exciting time to be an Everton supporter even if you aren’t a keen admirer of the new manager, Rafa Benitez.
Once again, the Toffees are set to flex their financial muscles with big bids lined up for various players.
It’s evident that the Merseyside outfit want to strengthen in a host of positions but one area they don’t necessarily need someone is up front.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin netted 21 goals last term but that hasn’t deterred Everton from eyeing a move for Haris Seferovic.
Their interest in the Swiss striker was revealed last week and according to a new report from O Jogo (via Sport Witness), they have now been in contact to sign him.
Everton are battling West Ham for his services and have collected references over Seferovic.
As Calvert-Lewin demonstrated last term, playing with a target man in this Everton side works like a treat.
Seven of his 21 strikes came with his head as the England international proved he was capable of beating the vast majority of centre-backs in the air.
That took his overall tally for Benfica to 69 strikes and he has since impressed immensely for Switzerland at Euro 2020.
A huge threat in aerial situations, the forward scored twice with his head during their remarkable victory over World Champions, France, in the last 16.
Describing one of the strikes, commentator Ally McCoist said he was “superb” for the way he rose above some of the game’s elite defenders.
The Toffees have become accustomed to playing with a target man so Seferovic and the squad shouldn’t need too much adjustment time.
Providing Benitez can iron out his inconsistencies, he’d be a wise signing for the Toffees.
