Everton Show Interest In Fringe Arsenal Striker: Just What The Toffees Need?

Everton are finding themselves in a fix right now in the Premier League, having lost three games in a row in their first five games in the tournament. However, the sixth one brought some hope to the side, with the ranked outcast Oumar Niasse coming off the bench and scoring a brace to clinch a much-needed win for his side against Bournemouth.

The man in charge at Goodison Park, Ronald Koeman is well aware of the fact that it is going to take much more than how his team is doing currently to get them in a comfort zone in the Premier League for the rest of the season. He is also very much aware of the fact that he will need a quality striker, who will be able to score goals on a regular basis and help them finish in the top half of the table.

The Dutchman has been eying a number of players to be brought into the side, with the name of the Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck right on the top of his target list. The player has been one of the brightest stars in English football in the recent times and has been scoring whenever the chance has fallen to him since his move to the Emirates Stadium from Manchester United in 2014.

The player, despite his good execution and composure on the field, has been kept down to a bits and pieces role in the side and has been trying to make it to the starting lineup desperately but to no avail with the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud in the side.

Now, with the inclusion of the French forward Alexandre Lacazette, there is a chance for Welbeck to be pushed further down the pecking order and the player might be willing to make a move out of the Emirates Stadium in the forthcoming transfer window.

Speculations are rife that the Merseyside club is very much interested to bring in a player of his quality to solve their problems in the attacking department and get some goals for their liking.

With his current contract with the North London club expiring in 2019 and Arsenal yet to start contract talks with him, it looks like that the Toffees might look to make a move for the England international to add to their roster in the next transfer window to give them that much-needed impetus, which has been missing from their side since the start of the season.
