Everton have enjoyed a fine start to life under Marco Silva, with a goalless draw against Chelsea prior to the international break showing progression.
There are still improvements to be found though and the Toffees are likely to be active in the market again come January, where Silva may well look towards recruits that can bolster his side’s attacking firepower.
An obvious solution to this would be signing a new top-class striker but it seems the club may have another idea, as reports suggest the Toffees are eyeing a swoop for Benfica winger Andrija Zivkovic.
Everton are already strong in the wide areas with the likes of Bernard, Theo Walcott and Ademola Lookman but Zivkovic’s arrival would further increase the strength in depth, while it could also mean Richarlison retains his spot leading the line.
Fans on social media have responded to the reports on mass and the majority are impressed by the potential piece of business. We have gathered some of their reactions below.
Good but prioritise Gomes first please ????

I wanted us to sign him years ago. I think he is quality

This makes sense if Richarlison replaces Toson up front.

We’re pretty covered on the wings, a 20+ goal striker or even better x2 remains the priority after not signing 1 in the Summer #NSNO

If we’re genuinely interested, I can’t see how anyone can question the judgement of Silva and Brands.
