Everton signing 12-goal powerhouse is a possibility - reliable journalist

By Harvey Byrne

Everton signing Cardiff powerhouse striker Kenneth Zohore is a possibility before Thursday’s transfer deadline, according to a reliable journalist.

Tom Barclay, a reporter for the Sun has claimed via his personal Twitter account on Tuesday afternoon that a move from the Toffees for the 23-year-old Danish forward could still happen despite there being just over 48 hours left of the summer window.

The former Denmark Under-21 international made the switch to Cardiff in January 2016 on an initial loan deal before then signing permanently for an undisclosed fee the following summer from K.V. Kortrijk.

In his first full campaign in England last season he bagged 12 goals in 29 league outings following a slow start before a run after January saw him bag 11 of the 12 strikes.

He has already got up and running in the new campaign with one strike from his first five matches, which came against Burton on the opening day.

However, a move to the Premier League may now be looming as Everton search for a target man to replace Romelu Lukaku.

Football Insider verdict:

It is clear that Ronald Koeman is looking for an alternate striker option to both Wayne Rooney and Sandro Ramirez and that player could be youngster Zohore. The player is still getting to grips with the English leagues, but if last season’s end of form as well as comments from the outspoken Neil Warnock are to go by then he could be a real talent. It is fair to say that his goal to game ratio isn’t brilliant, but working with a natural finisher like Rooney at the Toffees could be perfect for Zohore’s development.

In other Everton transfer news, this Toffees attacker was omitted from the squad against Chelsea amid reported interest from elsewhere.
