One season left on contract: Why Everton must sign Ligue 1 hotshot to replace Lukaku

Current options

Koeman has just two strikers available to him currently in Oumar Niasse and Sandro Ramirez, but Senegal international Niasse is likely to be sold after spending the second half of the 2016-17 season with Hull.

With Ramirez untested in the Premier League, other options are needed in case the Spaniard cannot rediscover his goalscoring form in the top flight of English football.

That suggests a new striker should be purchased in order to replace Niasse this summer, and Rolan could be the perfect cheap alternative to do just that.
