The striker for West Ham United, Michail Antonio, is Everton’s primary target for the next transfer window. The Sun’s Alan Nixon claims that Everton will re-enter the bidding for Antonio at the conclusion of the current campaign.
The Everton Toffees were interested in West Ham’s striker, Antonio, in January but were unable to make a deal for him. Even yet, Sean Dyche isn’t giving up on his plan to get Antonio to Goodison Park.
If Everton keeps their Premier League spot, Farhad Moshiri will reportedly pay for a transfer of Antonio. There are rumours that West Ham might be willing to let Antonio depart this summer in exchange for acquiring new attackers.
Everton hopes to beat off Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers for Antonio’s services in January.
Neal Maupay, who was signed in the summer is not performing. Ellis Simms scored on the weekend against Chelsea and shows promise, while Tom Cannon, out on loan at Preston North End, is making a name for himself.
But, Dyche would likely choose a tried-and-true Premier League striker since he lacks faith in the aforementioned choices. Antonio is a good match, however, some Everton supporters would be wary of acquiring a player who is almost 33 and might be beyond his prime.
Antonio has scored 59 goals in 218 Premier League appearances, and he possesses the physicality and work ethic that Dyche values as an attacker. Even if Everton signs Antonio, they’ll need another striker to truly get going again, but for now, Dyche is focused on keeping the club in the Premier League.
