Jamie Vardy proved against Tottenham why Everton must sign him this summer

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy finished another impressive Premier League season with a brilliant display in his side’s final day 5-4 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Sunday, and Everton must make him their No. 1 transfer target this summer.

The 31-year-old, rated at £16.2m by Transfermarkt, scored twice to reach the 20-goal mark in the top flight, ending the campaign with 20 goals in 37 league matches for the Foxes.

As per usual, the England international worked his socks off up top – pressurising defenders and chasing lost causes – and he got his reward with a brace.

Meanwhile, Toffees boss Sam Allardyce admitted last week that the Merseyside outfit need another striker this summer to challenge Cenk Tosun for a spot in the XI, and they should be considering launching an offer for Vardy when the transfer window opens this week.

The fact that the attacker scored two goals from four shots at Wembley is even more impressive considering he only touched the ball 20 times in the game, and he also made two key passes to show his unselfish side – as per WhoScored.com.

Everton’s 3-1 defeat to West Ham United on Sunday proved that there is plenty of work to be done in terms of improving the squad if they are to challenge for Europe next term – 63% of Toffees fans don’t want a 41-year-old manager to replace the unpopular Allardyce this summer – and Vardy looks as though he could be an ideal attacking signing for the club.
