Everton Looking To Break Their Record Transfer Fee For This La Liga Striker: Is He Worth The Fuss?

Premier League side Everton have been looking for a good striker for quite a while now. With offers pouring in for star striker Romelu Lukaku from some of the biggest teams in and outside the Premier League, the Merseyside team is getting even more desperate to acquire the services of a quality forward.

The desperation is showing more prominently as Everton are ready to break the transfer fee record in the club’s history.

Currently, the player on Everton’s radar is the Brazilian Willian Jose who plays for Real Sociedad. Sources say that Steve Walsh, the director of football at Everton has already been in talks with the representatives of Real Sociedad so that it is possible to get the striker to sign for the Premier League club as soon as the transfer window opens.

It has been just a year for the Brazilian forward to have joined the Spanish side, and he has been able to already make a mark with his exuberant style of football.

Everton are looking to hand out £28million in order to secure the Brazilian, the same amount they had paid to rope in Romelu Lukaku. However, Real Sociedad has fixed the buyout clause for Willian Jose at £33million.

The Brazilian forward has scored 11 goals in 28 appearances so far this season for the Spanish La Liga side. The 25-year-old player is good at unleashing shots from long distance and has a natural ability to play long balls.

Apart from scoring goals, Willian can create chances for his teammates by sneaking in through balls in front of the goal.

Koeman has clearly shown his ambition and the stage where he wants Everton to operate on day in, day out. Martinez promised the same but could not deliver but it seems the more practical Koeman is on the right track.

Ronald Koeman, since taking charge of Everton last year, has been looking to strengthen the side and is constantly trying to make the side ready for European ventures in case they qualify.

It goes without saying that the rise of Romelu Lukaku to become the current top scorer of the Premier League has a benevolent influence of the Dutchman standing on the sidelines.

The entry of the Brazilian striker Willian Jose will be another effort by the influential coach to make his stamp permanent on the team from the Merseyside and it goes without saying that he will bring in a much needed alternate dimension to their attack.
