Everton are looking determined to make a strong start in the season ahead, and have been revamping their squad accordingly in the summer transfer market. They already have their hands on two of the hottest prospects in European football in the recent years in the form of Davy Klaassen from Dutch Eredivisie side Ajax and Jordan Pickford from the Championship side Sunderland. Both players are known to be in great form throughout the last season and are willing to showcase their talents in the Premier League in the forthcoming season.
The Toffees are not yet looking to stop their juggernaut in the transfer market and are inclined towards bringing in a top class striker to adorn their line-up for the next season. Among a number of players who have been eyed by their present man in charge Ronald Koeman, the forward from Italian Serie A club Fiorentina, Nikola Kalinic, has been the one to have attracted most of the interest, owing to his good form in the last season.
The Croatian forward has been known for his hunger for goals throughout his career and has made a good contribution to his team’s success over the past few seasons. He has scored 15 goals in 32 appearances for Fiorentina in the last season establishing himself as one of the top strikers in European football in the current scenario.
Reportedly, Everton might have to part ways with their star striker Romelu Lukaku, who has been willing to make a move back to Stamford Bridge in order to join his former club Chelsea, after having one of the best seasons as far as goals are concerned in the last term where he scored 25 times to end as the second highest scorer in the Premier League.
Undoubtedly, this is going to leave a huge gap in the attacking front for the Merseyside club and they are looking to bring in someone like Kalinic in order to spearhead their attack, successfully replacing the Belgian striker in their squad in the next season.
As per sources, the Croatian marksman has also made it clear to the Italian outfit that he wants to leave the club in the next season, which has put a number of clubs from all over Europe on alert along with the Premier League club Everton and also fellow Serie A club, AC Milan. However, Fiorentina are in no mood to let go of their prized possession in the next term, at least for a price under £40 million.
