Everton fans desperate for Allardyce to sign a new left-back

Everton had a period of positivity following Sam Allardyce’s arrival as manager.

The team went on a seven-game unbeaten run in the Premier League once the experienced coach became Ronald Koeman’s permanent successor in November.

Now, though, it is a different story as the team have lost their last three top-flight matches.

In that spell, the team conceded eight goals, and four of them were struck by Tottenham Hotspur in Saturday’s thumping at Wembley.

Allardyce has attempted to address the lack of firepower issue by bringing in Cenk Tosun from Besiktas.

The former Crystal Palace boss has also confirmed that talks are underway to sign Theo Walcott from Arsenal.

One area that the fans are desperate for Allardyce to strengthen is at left-back.

Leighton Baines is no closer to returning to action, while Cuco Martina has had mixed reviews since his arrival from Southampton last summer.

Given that Baines is on the wrong side of 30 – 33 – the fans think that buying a new left-back should be a priority.
