According to the Daily Mail, Everton's search for a new striker has made them consider Cardiff City striker Kenneth Zohore as a possible target before Thursday's transfer deadline.

The Toffees have spent heavily this summer in order to boost the squad at Ronald Koeman's disposal, with Jordan Pickford, Michael Keane, Davy Klaassen, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Sandro Ramirez and Wayne Rooney all arriving at Goodison Park.

So far, results have been strong; four points from two Premier League is a good start for Koeman, whilst the Dutchman has also guided Everton into the Europa League group stage having qualified with ease this summer.

Even after so many new signings, Everton are still hunting more additions, with another striker understandably wanted, given that top goalscorer Romelu Lukaku was sold to Manchester United in a big-money deal earlier this summer.

Koeman has enjoyed success with target men before, and with Everton searching for a physical centre forward, the Daily Mail report that Cardiff City striker Kenneth Zohore is being considered as a possible target.

Zohore, 23, had spells with Copenhagen and Fiorentina before joining Cardiff in January 2016, penning a permanent deal after two goals in 12 games on loan - and he thrived in South Wales last season, notching 12 goals in 29 Championship games, whilst he has also impressed this term.

The Dane, who has 27 goals in 62 appearances for his country across various youth levels, has shown real promise as a target man, flashing pace and power during his time with Cardiff, making him a surprise target for Everton late in the transfer window.

Everton may have to pay relatively big money to land Zohore though, as Hull failed with a £10million bid for him last week (Hull Daily Mail), with Cardiff boss Neil Warnock telling Wales Online that he would sell for around £30million - though, realistically speaking, a deal may be done at closer to £10million than £30million.
