According to Spanish news outlet Mundo Deportivo, Everton are interested in signing powerful striker Willian Jose.
The Brazilian forward has been on fire for Real Sociedad since signing two years ago, bagging 20 goals this season for the Spanish club.
Everton clearly have problems up front, only managing to score 44 times in the Premier League last season, and it is an area new manager Marco Silva will need to invest in this summer if he wants the team to improve on its 8th place finish.
However, according to the report, Real Sociedad want £52million for Willian Jose, which would break Everton’s transfer record.
We asked Everton fans if they would be prepared to spend a club record £52million on recruiting Willian Jose this summer, and 65 per cent said they would.
Some clearly see Willian Jose as a potential replacement for Romelu Lukaku, with both players being strong and physical strikers who bully defenders.
However, it remains to be seen whether Marco Silva would spend such a huge sum on one player with no Premier League experience, despite what the fans may think.
