Everton should take punt on Godsway Donyoh

According to GhanaSoccerNet, Everton are considering a move for FC Nordsjaelland forward Godsway Donyoh, having scouted the 24-year-old this season.

What’s the story?

Donyoh spent time with Manchester City during his youth career, but never made a first-team appearance for the Citizens before departing in 2015.

The 24-year-old was picked up by Nordsjaelland in 2016, and he has scored an impressive 24 goals in 58 appearances for the Danish club in all competitions.

According to GhanaSoccerNet, Everton have sent scouts to watch the forward in action this season, although the same can also be said for Leicester City and Bournemouth as Premier League clubs circle.

Donyoh seemingly cannot stop scoring for his Danish club this season, having found the back of the net on eight occasions, seven of which have come in just 11 league appearances.

Nordsjaelland will seemingly find it difficult to keep hold of the striker, and it would not be a surprise to see him move to the Premier League.

Should Everton take a punt?

With respect to Nordsjaelland, the Danish outfit would be unable to repel interest from England, and Donyoh is hardly going to break the bank.

Scoring goals in Denmark is a different ball game to finding the back of the net in England, but Donyoh’s form this season means that he deserves a shot.

Man City saw enough in him as a youngster to offer him a deal, and the fact that the Ghanaian can play in a number of different positions  in the final third of the field makes him an attractive proposition.

Theo Walcott has struggled for consistency this season, and Donyoh’s arrival would certainly put pressure on the Englishman.

It is perhaps not a signing that will capture the imagination of the Everton fans, but Donyoh’s reported arrival could turn out to be an excellent piece of business.
