Everton director of football Steve Walsh will have a lot of work to do in the summer transfer window in order to right his wrongs from 12 months ago which ultimately led to Ronald Koeman’s dismissal.
There’s every chance that Sam Allardyce will be replaced as manager, but that doesn’t mean Walsh should be taking his eye off the ball in the transfer market and has to begin his search for new striker options.
One centre-forward he must try and sign is RB Leipzig’s Yussuf Poulsen after he revealed that he is dreaming of switching to the Premier League at some point in his career.
Poulsen, 23, has bags of potential waiting to be untapped and he would be a perfect addition at Goodison Park for the 2018/19 campaign.
The Denmark international told German newspaper BILD: “The Premier League would generally interest me, that would fit well with my game.”
One problem that Everton may face though is that the 6ft 3in colossus is a big Liverpool supporter, so he may have to play for his team’s bitter rivals in order to realise his dream move.
“As a kid I supported Liverpool. My best friend was a fan of the club – and then you are somewhere, too. In Denmark there was no other foreign league on TV,” he added.
Poulsen has not been a prolific goalscorer for Leipzig, however he has proven that he is a great team player that usually looks for a pass rather than shoot.
In 38 appearances across all competitions this term, Poulsen has scored five goals and supplied nine assists.
If he is made the focal point of Everton’s attack, he would definitely get more goals while also being able to combine well with the attacking midfielders and wingers to continue his assist-streak.
