It’s early January, and Everton’s window is already shaping up to be a bit disappointing. Yes, the club does need a frontline striker. Is Cenk Tosun that man? Who knows, but the Blues have been linked with him for weeks now and the transfer once seemed all wrapped up. They need to get it done.
Beyond that, the only players that seem to be seriously connect to Merseyside are in the one spot on the pitch when the club isn’t lacking for depth; center midfield. Where are the links to fullbacks? Wingers? Centerbacks? Maybe a goalkeeper to back up Jordan Pickford going forward?
There is still plenty of time remaining for the Toffees to get their business done. Perhaps that have something hidden up their sleeve. Fans will certainly be hoping so.
