Everton have been left short up-front this season, following the departure of Romelu Lukaku.
The Toffees went after Chelsea’s Diego Costa and Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud in the summer transfer window, but were unable to get a deal for either of the pair over the line.
And Wilkins feels that Celtic forward Griffiths would have made a good alternative for the Toffees.
“He’s a goalscorer,” Wilkins said of the Celtic striker.
“People will say he’s a little one, not a big one. But at the end of the day Griffiths puts the ball in the back of the net. He’s got a good left-foot.”
Griffiths has scored prolifically at Celtic, but his previous spell in English football was at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Griffiths is currently competing with Moussa Dembele for a place in Celtic’s starting line-up, with Brendan Rodgers often rotating the pair.
Everton failed to bring in an out-an-out forward last summer, and both Sandro Ramirez and Wayne Rooney have struggled when leading the line.
Everton are currently in 15th place in the Premier League table, after a disappointing campaign to date.
