Are Everton making a mistake targeting Jorgensen ahead of Dolberg?

Everton are keen on Danish star Nicolai Jorgensen.

Everton have been linked with a move for Feyenoord striker Nicolai Jorgensen, with Danish publication BT reporting their interest.

On last season's form it is easy to see why. Jorgensen scored 25 goals in all competitions and provided 17 assists, helping Feyenoord win the Eredivisie title.

In pushing for Jorgensen, Everton could be not only targeting the wrong Eredivisie star, but also the wrong Dane.

A superior option would be Ajax talent Kasper Dolberg, who has been making waves in European football at just 19-years-old.

Dolberg is seven years younger than Jorgensen, and has just one fewer prolific season under his belt than his competitor.

Jorgensen has only scored 15 goals or more twice in his career, and while he has now hit form, Everton must be wary about splashing out on his signature.

Eredivisie strikers notoriously struggle to adjust to English football, with Vincent Janssen disappointing at Tottenham this past season.

Jozy Altidore, Mateja Kezman and Afonso Alves are notorious disappointments.

Kasper Dolberg scored 23 goals in all competitions for Ajax last season, and while he would face similar difficulties to Jorgensen, he would have a major advantage with Everton already signing Ajax teammate Davy Klaassen.

A move for Dolberg could help both players out, and the Toffees would be smart to link them up once again.

Signing Jorgensen instead may be cheaper, but the difference could be costly if it doesn't work out.
