Everton Want This £20m EPL Forward As West Ham Also Interested: Why Koeman Has To Make It Happen

Despite having a star-studded lineup in the Premier League, the Toffees have lacked seriously in one area- their attack. With most of the players in the attacking third not clicking this season so far, what Everton need is the flair that would keep the spirits high for others.

Koeman has already identified the dilemma and the Dutch boss is looking at options to add up front that could ease up the burden for Lukaku and bring a new dimension to their attack. Now, it seems Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson has emerged as a likely target for the Toffees.

As per reports, Everton are weighing up an offer for the 24-year-old forward this January. According to the same report, Everton will have a fight on their hands if they want to bring this player in as West Ham United are also interested. A regular starter for Eddie Howe, the player has scored five times and registered one assist so far. His impressive performances have also interested West Ham United, who are also looking to land the player.

Wilson has signed a new deal earlier this year, which keeps him at the club until 2020. However, an offer in the region of £20million and upwards could be enough to secure his services. And for both Everton and West Ham United, meeting the price tag is very much possible.

Since joining the Cherries in 2014, Wilson has scored 33 goals in 78 appearances. The experienced forward looks like a clinical striker who excels at finishing if found in and around the D-box. With a shot accuracy of 51%, Wilson could be a very good addition to the Everton squad. The English forward is pretty elusive in the attacking areas and is solid with his passing as well. Koeman can also deploy him as an attacking midfielder, just behind Lukaku.

A Coventry youth product, Wilson has found his way to the top through numerous second and third tier English football clubs and has enough experience. That makes him all the more appropriate as Koeman won’t have to try him first in cup tournaments to get him settled. He will enter directly into the first team.

However, there is a concern regarding his defensive contributions. He does not tend to fall back and defend and lacks the skill to hold the ball up front for others to attack in number. Koeman will have a difficult task in inculcating the player to Everton’s style of play, who try to win matches through aggressive football.

Enner Valencia has surprisingly done well to make things easier up front and Wilson’s addition will definitely make a difference to Everton’s poor campaign.
