Everton Want This Danish Wonderkid With A Keen Eye For Goal; The Replacement For Lukaku?

Everton have emerged as a surprise club to have a thrilling transfer window this summer as the Merseyside outfit continue their long strides towards securing the services of hot European prospects.  After roping in exciting stars like Jordan Pickford from Sunderland and Davy Klassen from Ajax FC, Ronald Koeman is now weighing up a bid for Klassen’s former teammate Kasper Dolberg.

The potential exit of Romelu Lukaku has left the Toffees with some large shoes to fill and the big money he will fetch has given them the liberty to go after some of the most thrilling prospects for that role.

Everton finished at a respectful seventh position in the league table last season, which saw them qualify for the Europa League next season. And Koeman wants to make sure that he makes full use of their European stature in landing his transfer targets. Everton are really unfortunate to lose out on their star players despite meeting some top priority targets and the task next season could be twice as difficult.

The Merseyside club rode high on the 25-goal feat of their Belgian star Romelu Lukaku last season, and if he isn’t going to be there at Goodison Park next term, then Koeman will have to bring in someone, who can keep the scoresheet ticking with his scoring prowess, and Dolberg seems an ideal fit.

The 19-year-old AFC Ajax academy product was in prolific form last term scoring 23 goals and assisting eight times in 48 appearances. The Danish forward is touted as the next big thing in world football following his stellar displays in the last term and is understandably not that accessible yet.

But, the sale of Lukaku, who is labelled at around £100 million by Everton, should surely be enough to fetch Koeman the buying price for the Danish wonder kid. A centre-forward by nature Dolberg can easily adapt to playing on the flanks as well.

At just 19, he is already 187cm, which makes him an extremely useful option from aerial attacks and he knows to use his height brilliantly. And that, blended by his raw pace on and off the ball, makes him one of the most dangerous forwards to have. He has a pleasantly surprising nose for goal and is capable of producing the neatest of finishes from in and around the box.

An academy product of Silkeborg IF, Ajax realised his potential only two years back in 2015, and he has been their first choice forward since last season. Although his inexperience could be a huge risk for Everton as he would take his time to settle in the Premier League, he is a rish definitely worth taking this summer.
