Everton manager Ronald Koeman has insisted that the club need to bring in a striker before the transfer window closes on Thursday.
The Dutchman, who ideally wants two new players brought in over the next few days, made the claims after overseeing his team lose 2-0 to Chelsea.
The Toffees travelled to Stamford Bridge on Sunday for the third Premier League match of the season, but it was not a happy afternoon for the club.
The team ended up leaving West London having conceded goals from Cesc Fabregas and Alvaro Morata.
Everton never looked as though they would perform a comeback, and despite signing eight new players in this window, Koeman is desperate for more.
The blue half of Merseyside have spent well over £100m on shaking up the squad, which has picked up four points from a possible nine.
After losing to Chelsea, the Everton boss told reporters that he intends to jump back into the market, which got the fans talking.

Lukaku left over a month ago and knew he was on his way well before and he's still stating we need a striker, poor from RK, SW and the board

I'd say 3/4 more players at the very least.

So why haven't we got them in then?

This should have been identified, sorted & player(s) purchased before Lukaku was sold. Backward thinking!!

We've know we needed a striker since Lukaku left,why leave it till the last few days of the window? Benteke would be ideal
