Revealed: 54% of Everton fans want to sign Charlie Austin

Loads of Everton fans have been discussing their need for a new number nine, and just over half of polled fans think a move for Charlie Austin could be the perfect solution.

Everton have looked like a completely different team this season, playing some wonderful football under Marco Silva.

Though the Toffees have picked up just one win in their last six games, this isn’t really reflective of their performances, which have been packed with free-flowing attacking football.

The lack of a clinical centre forward is preventing them from turning good performances into good results, and Austin could be a relatively cheap solution to the problem.

The 29 year-old will be entering the last 18 months of his contract in January, meaning the Toffees wouldn’t have to splash out tens of millions on a player from Europe who may or may not cope with the Premier League.

The emergence of Michael Obafemi means the Saints now have five strikers competing for a start, and Austin’s goalscoring exploits could be truly unleashed at Goodison.
