Everton are expected to be one of the busier Premier League teams in this summer’s transfer window, with Ronald Koeman eager to reinforce his squad and progress next season.
One thing that the Toffees manager has stated of late is that he wants to add goals to his side, with an over-reliance on Romelu Lukaku to find the net this season.
As such, midfielders with a track record of scoring or second strikers that can get 10+ strikes a season will be in Everton’s gaze.
With this prerequisite, impressive Bournemouth attacker Josh King truly fits the bill for the Goodison Park side.
The Norwegian forward has been in excellent form this season and has been particularly lethal in the final third since the turn of the year.
This has led to King being linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur of late, who are also looking for a trusted support player to partner or act as a deputy for Harry Kane.
While Spurs could offer the Bournemouth man Champions League football next season and Everton could not, if the Cherries star is available he would be much better suited moving to Merseyside.
With Lukaku’s future at Goodison unclear, King would surely command a potential starting berth in Koeman’s XI and be a versatile and impressive new addition.
Able to play as the furthest man forward or as a supporting attacker, it is clear to see why Tottenham supposedly want him – Mauricio Pochettino demands his players are able to be flexible to different positions and systems.
However, if Everton want to sign a player with a solid Premier League record, able to add goals to their team and someone that is attainable, then King could well be a shrewd acquisition for the Toffees.
