Ronald Koeman is not holding back this summer as he seems desperate, not just to improve on his squad, but to do it in quick time, as he is getting some deals done quickly. Having already signed Jordan Pickford and Davy Klaassen, Everton are also reportedly closing in on the Spanish striker Sandro Ramirez, but that does not seem to be the end for the Toffees.
With Belgian star Romelu Lukaku’s exit impending, Koeman wants to go all out for the best in the business and is reportedly ready to break the bank for yet another striker to add to his squad. According to reports from the Sun, Everton are ready to break their transfer record to land Celtic ace Moussa Dembele.
One of the most wanted attackers currently in Europe, Dembele has constantly been linked with a move to some of the biggest clubs in England. Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool have all been linked with a move for the French striker this summer. However, reports suggest that Everton are ready to pay £30m for his services and are close to landing him.
With 32 goals and nine assists across all competitions for the Glasgow based outfit, Dembele helped Celtic to a sensational league title and also a domestic treble, helping the club to one of their best years in recent times.
At just 20, Dembele is yet to make it into the first team for the national side but is an established star in the domestic circuit, having represented France in every junior section. A product of the PSG Academy, Dembele moved to Fulham as a teenager in 2012 and did not take long to make it into the first team. He made 56 league appearances in England in two years at the Craven Cottage before being picked up by the Scottish giants in 2013.
Known for his deadly finishing, Dembele is a decent dribbler who knows his way to the goal from most positions in the attacking third. He is the creator in chief in attack and loves the game to run through him in front of goal. Though not too strong, Dembele is smart in spinning around defenders and finding space in dangerous areas and this is what allows him to create and score goals consistently.
Everton are ready to pay £30m, which will be hard for Celtic to refuse and if they are able to land him, Koeman might just be able to replace Lukaku completely in just one transfer window.
