Aston Villa's Jordan Ayew
Everton manager Ronald Koeman is desperate to strengthen his squad further, as reported in the Daily Mail earlier this week, and after his failed attempt to land Stoke City forward Marko Arnautovic, the Dutchman must reconsider his options as to who he attempts to bring into the club.
A sensible option for Everton would be Aston Villa's exciting forward Jordan Ayew. Although the 24-year-old Ghanaian endured a difficult debut season in English football last term, he displayed glimpses of his talent, and could still prove to be an excellent player if given the opportunity to shine.

As speculation regarding the future of Romelu Lukaka continues to mount, it will be necessary for the Merseyside outfit to add forward options to their squad, even if the Belgian ends up staying at Everton.
Ayew can play in a variety of positions across the front-line, and would act as fantastic competition for Kevin Mirallas in the wide left role. He is extremely quick and direct in his style, but possesses wonderful guile at the same time.

The Ghanaian signed for Villa last summer from Lorient on a five-year deal, for a fee believed to be in the region of £8.5 million. To tempt the Midlands outfit into selling, an offer that exceeds that amount would surely be required.
Should a move come to fruition, Goodison Park could be the stage where Ayew fulfils his obvious potential, and turns into the Premier League star that he is more than capable of becoming.
