Everton are reportedly tracking Red Star Belgrade’s Richmond Boakye. The January transfer window is going to be important for the Toffees as it can go a long way in helping them repair their season. The Merseyside club has had a rough patch of form this season and Ronald Koeman’s tactics have been put under the scanner.
Despite leading the club to the seventh position last season, this campaign hasn’t been the same for the Dutch gaffer as he has been struggling to implement his strategy, as it seems. Owner Farhad Moshiri has splashed over £140m in the summer, a first in the club’s history, but results have disappointed him so far.
Boakye has been in red-hot form for the Serbian giants this season and has already racked up 11 goals in all competitions. His excellent display has been pretty convincing for Koeman who has been looking for a typical goal poacher for his side.
There has been a dearth of productivity in front of the Toffees goal as both Wayne Rooney and Sandro Ramirez have failed to convert their chances. The loss of Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United has already started to take a toll on the club and Koeman needs to find a quick solution to this problem.
Fellow Premier League side Chelsea are also reportedly keeping a tab on the player. Antonio Conte’s is well acquainted with the player’s ability as the forward had a brief but unsuccessful spell at Juventus. But The Blues are now one of the prime suitors for him and scouts were active at the Red Star Stadium when the Serbian side lost to Arsenal in the Europa League clash on Thursday.
Everton haven’t scored enough goals this term despite having one of the finest attacking contingents. That spark in the opposition box is missing and Koeman would be hoping Boakye turns out to be their saviour. He has a price tag of £10m, which shouldn’t be a problem for the Toffees.
Boakye’s agent has revealed there are interest from a number of clubs including Everton. So the Merseyside club just needs to back up it’s intent with a lucrative offer in January. Everton desperately need some inspiration upfront to steer them through this season and the Ghanaian international could bring that much-needed change.
He is a wanted man in Europe right now but is he right for Everton?
