Everton Linked With Move For This 39 Times International Winger: What Will He Add To Ancelotti’s Team?

According to the reports from Corriere dello Sport as cited by Liverpool Echo, Everton have emerged as one of the potential destinations for Hirving Lozano. The winger moved to Napoli in the summer, and it is believed that Carlo Ancelotti played a significant role in bringing him to Italy from PSV Eindhoven.

Lozano has made 15 appearances in the Serie A this season, but he has started only eight games. It would be fair to say that the Mexican international has failed to establish himself in the first team so far. With Ancelotti now at Everton, they could be one of the suitors for him.

The report mentions that a January move is unlikely, but the Toffees could return for him in the summer. Lozano is a versatile attacker who can play on either of the flanks or through the middle. The 24-year-old caught the attention of everyone because of his blistering performances in the 2018 World Cup for Mexico. Since then, quite a few top clubs have been linked with him, but Napoli were able to win the race for him last summer.

Everton have shown promising signs ever since Ancelotti took over, but it is clear that he would need some more firepower to take the Merseyside club to the next level.

What can Lozano bring to the table?

As mentioned, Lozano is a versatile attacker, but he usually likes to start from the left flank. The winger grabbed 21 goals and 12 assists for PSV in the 2018-19 campaign, and he is known for his producing consistent attacking returns.

Lozano showcases blistering pace, and not many defenders would be able to cope with him when he runs at full tilt. The winger is aggressive and committed in his approach as he likes to take his man on. However, what makes the Mexican stand out is his ability to make the right decision in the final third. The 24-year-old has an eye for a goal, and he can be an excellent pick to score 10-15 goals every season for the Toffees.

One drawback for the winger is that he could be troubled by the physical nature of the Premier League as Lozano is slightly on the lighter side. Nevertheless, we believe that he could work on that and be useful for the club. His hype has died down this season after his move to Napoli, but the winger is still an exciting talent who is in the prime of his career. With Ancelotti at the helm at Goodison, we believe that there is a good chance that a move could be possible in the future for the Mexican ace.
