Everton tipped to sign new striker in January

Throughout Everton’s season so far, it has been regularly mentioned that the club are struggling with attacking threat.

The team have managed to score just seven goals in 10 Premier League games, and things have not looked much brighter since David Unsworth temporarily replaced sacked manager Ronald Koeman.

The Under-23s coach has overseen three games and each one has ended in defeat, with the latter knocking the Merseyside outfit out of the Europa League.

In the summer, the club failed to replace Romelu Lukaku, who ended up joining Manchester United.

Wayne Rooney returned to Goodison Park and Sandro Ramirez was brought in, but neither have been able to match up to the Belgian, who scored 25 league goals last season.

At the moment, the Toffees sit in the relegation zone, eight points adrift of the top six that they had originally hoped to break into.

Neville Southall, who spent 17 years as a goalkeeper at Everton, is choosing to remain optimistic and thinks that the striker crisis will be solved.
