In a recent report, Estadio Deportivo revealed that Everton are keeping tabs on Real Betis forward Raul Garcia who is currently playing on loan at Mirandes. It has been claimed that the Toffees will face competition in the form of Brighton and Hove Albion in pursuit of the Spanish striker.
Garcia’s Excellent Loan Spell At Mirandes
Garcia is having a brilliant loan spell at Mirandes as he has produced several match-winning performances for them in the final third. The 22-year-old has found the back of the net 19 times and grabbed seven assists in 36 matches for the Spanish outfit this season in multiple competitions.
The Spanish prospect has caught the eye with his offensive contributions on loan in the second tier of Spanish football. His current contract at his parent club Real Betis will run out in the summer of 2025. Thus, Everton will have to make a good offer if they want to win the chase for his services later this year.
What Did Will Raul Garcia Add To Everton Boss Sean Dyche’s Side?
Garcia has proven his worth as a prolific goal-scorer in La Liga 2. He has led the line well for Mirances and could be in line to play regularly at Real Betis next season.
At 22, the Spanish youngster has the potential to become a future star in European football as long as he continues to improve his overall game with each season. However, he has to find a way to improve his link-up play on the attacking end of the field.
We can expect Garcia to add more goals to Everton boss Sean Dyche’s frontline. He might even serve as an ideal replacement for Anthony Gordon who left the Merseyside club to join Newcastle United in the January transfer window.
However, Garcia is still quite raw and would need time to prove his worth at the highest level. Furthermore, there are some concerns over whether he would be able to cope with the physical nature and high intensity of Premier League football if the Toffees manage to get him on board in this off-season.
Still, Garcia’s ceiling is sky-high which makes him a great, long-term option for Dyche to consider at the end of this campaign.
