More often than not, the January transfer window is used to recruit players that will act as cover for injured personnel, or to fill in a gap for the remainder of the season.
There have been examples of major money being spent in the winter, but it is not generally a window for marquee signings.
Everton brought in a handful of new faces in the summer following Marco Silva’s appointment as manager.
They have had problems in attack, which has led some to suggest that Silva should buy a new striker in January.
Cenk Tosun has taken time to find his feet, which prompted the manager to move Richarlison up front from the wing.
During a discussion on Reddit, some Everton fans expressed a desire for the club to bring in a new attacker, while a handful believe that the backups in other areas of the pitch should be priorities.
