According to The Sun on Sunday (24/03, page 59), Everton are looking to make a bid for the Birmingham City starlet Che Adams. The English forward is in prolific form this season and has notched up 21 goals in 40 matches for the Blues in the Championship.
Adams’ brilliant goalscoring form has helped his side reach the threshold of making it into the playoffs this season. However, the EFL has slapped them with a nine points deduction for financial breaches, which has pushed Garry Monk’s side down to the 18th position in the league table, which has made it difficult for them to hold onto their star man, as per the reports.
The Toffees, on the other hand, have been suffering from the lack of a top quality finisher in their side this season. Both their strikers, Cenk Tosun and Dominic Calvert Lewin, have been inconsistent in front of the goal, forcing manager Marco Silva to use Richarlison, who is more of a winger, as a makeshift striker.
Though the Brazilian ace has done well to get the goals for his side and has done the bulk of the scoring, it is imperative for the Toffees to get someone able enough to share his workload in the next season. The 22-year-old Birmingham City striker could be the perfect addition to the side and a force to reckon up front for the Merseyside club.
Known for his darting runs and versatility, Adams can be deployed both as an attacking midfielder as well as a forward. His classy footwork is good enough to deceive the opposition defenders, and his ability to score goals from a variety of ranges makes him the perfect candidate to come into the Everton side and lead the line for the Toffees.
Everton invested well in the summer transfer window, but most of their signings have failed to pay off this season. So it would be wise for the Merseyside club to scrutinise the abilities of the players whom they want to sign during the next transfer window before investing in them. Given his impeccable form and goalscoring record, Che Adams could be a safe option to invest in on the part of the Toffees if they are looking to secure his signing for the next term.
