Vincent Janssen would be an outstanding signing for Everton

With the future of Romelu Lukaku at Everton uncertain and the Toffees flush with cash, it makes sense that the club look at potential strike targets.

One player they should be looking at is a striker who could be lining up against them on the first day of the season, if they don't make a move.

Vincent Janssen of AZ Alkmaar was the Eredivisie top scorer last season with 27 goals, and gave John Stones a torrid time at Wembley when he led Holland to a March friendly win over England.

He is a player new Everton boss Ronald Koeman should be well aware of, and at just 21, he is available at a reasonable price.

AD Sportwereld report Janssen is frustrated that AZ are asking 18 million Euros for his signature, as he is keen to move on, and Tottenham Hotspur have not yet met it.

De Telegraaf reported Janssen held talks with Spurs earlier this month, and is keen on a move.

Yet while Spurs dally, Everton would be smart to steal in and make a move for the striker.

The two teams face off at Goodison Park on the opening weekend of the 2016/17 season, and Tottenham would not like having to go up against Janssen any more than Everton would.

The striker is an excellent prospect whose finishing ability has been compared in his homeland to Ruud van Nistelrooy, while his goals record last season speaks for itself.

Strikers with good Eredivisie records of course have been hit and miss in the Premier League, but Ronald Koeman might be just the right manager to get the best out him and impart wise advice to help him succeed.

There are not many strikers with Janssen's potential, who are available at such a reasonable price this summer, and while Everton cannot offer Champions League football, financially they may be able to better Tottenham's offer, and easily meet AZ's demands.
