Revealed: Only 35% of Everton fans would prefer club to sign Zaha over a striker

Whenever the ‘transfer window’ and ‘Everton’ are mentioned in the same sentence, it usually contains talk of signing a new striker.

Marco Silva bolstered the team with new talent in midfield, defence and wide areas during the summer, but he neglected the positions up front.

The Toffees’ main strikers Cenk Tosun, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Oumar Niasse have failed to impress on a consistent basis.

As a result, Silva has started playing winger Richarlison in a more advanced role.

So far it is working, but when the market reopens in two months’ time, there are likely to be calls from fans for a new hitman.

Usually, huge amounts of money do not tend to be spent in the middle of the season, so if Everton were thinking of making a splash with one signing, should they be focusing on another area of the pitch.

In a poll, we asked you if the Toffees should consider swooping for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, who can score goals as well as provide them for others.

During his time at Selhurst Park the Ivory Coast international has made 297 appearances, scoring 46 goals and registering 57 assists.

The majority of fans who took part in our poll would prefer the club to move for a striker, but a big chunk would prefer Zaha.
