Everton spent big in the summer and bolstered several areas of the pitch but their failure to land a top striker has hurt them badly.

Despite the impressive rise of young Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Everton need a top striker in their ranks in the January transfer window.

According to reports from the Daily Mail, Everton have short listed three strikers – Jermain Defoe, Andy Carroll, and Christian Benteke – as Sam Allardyce is looking to bolster that department.

There is also a possibility that Everton could make another attempt to lure Olivier Giroud from Arsenal. Could Everton look for options abroad?

Serie A giants AC Milan could be looking to offload Portuguese striker Andre Silva, after he failed to make an impact in Italy.

The Italian club pipped Arsenal to the signing of the striker in summer, for a reported fee of £33m, as quoted by the Daily Star, but they are willing to sell him.

“He is a player with great qualities and is also very young,” Gattuso said about Silva, as quoted by the Daily Star

"I think he has a good rating in the transfer market. He can be sold easily, especially since I have not seen him do a one-two in a long time.”

According to Le 10 Sport, the Gunners are still interested in the player. Should Everton make a move too?

The Portugal international has scored 11 goals in 18 games for his country already. The 22-year-old is a top young talent, and had a great scoring record in Portugal.

His move to Italy didn’t work according to plan, but that doesn’t make him a bad player by any stretch of the imagination.

He has the age on his side to revive his career. His signing could be a gamble, but the move could also turn out to be a masterstroke.
