Everton fans react to transfer link with Krzysztof Piatek

Some Everton fans have been reacting on Twitter after the printed edition of The Sunday Mirror (January 19, page 66) reported that the Toffees have joined the race to sign AC Milan striker Krzysztof Piatek.

The report says that the Merseyside outfit could battle with the likes of Crystal Palace and Tottenham Hotspur for the 24-year-old, who has been an unused substitute in the Serie A club’s previous two league matches following the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the San Siro.

Everton have already loaned out Cenk Tosun to Palace during the current transfer window, which has certainly left them a little short of depth in the centre-forward position – Carlo Ancelotti now has Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison, Moise Kean and Oumar Niasse to pick from.

Would Piatek be a good signing for Everton?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Of the latter duo, the former is yet to score in 21 appearances for the club, while Niasse is reportedly up for sale and surplus to requirements.

Piatek scored 30 goals in 42 outings for Genoa and Milan last term, but that prolific touch has deserted him in 2019/20 and he only has five in 19, with just two of those coming since October 20.

His record across the previous 18 months was certainly a big talk point among supporters, with one suggesting that Ancelotti could work his magic on the Poland international if he did join.

Other supporters replied to a tweet about the transfer interest from The USM Toffees Blues account.

One suggested that a potential deal for Piatek could see Kean go the other way back to Italy after a disappointing six months in England.

Call yourself an Everton expert? How much did each of these January signings cost?

1 of 14

How much did Everton pay to sign Theo Walcott from Arsenal?

That would certainly be a surprise, but perhaps a loan move could do him the world of good as he continues to struggle to get to grips with life in the Premier League.

One supporter seemingly wasn’t happy with a link to a striker, saying that the club need midfielders as a priority.

That is an understandable view given the likes of Morgan Schneiderlin Gylfi Sigurdsson and Fabian Delph haven’t exactly shone in the middle of the park in recent weeks, with the former duo picking up 3/10 and 2/10 ratings respectively from The Liverpool Echo in the 1-0 defeat against Liverpool.

However, with Jean-Philippe Gbamin and Andre Gomes back in training after injury, perhaps the club are willing to wait on them and then weigh up their options in the summer given the likes of Tom Davies and Mason Holgate can also play there.
