Everton are being linked with Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck.
Everton remain somewhat patchy under Marco Silva, and even after a late transfer flurry this summer, more arrivals could come this summer.
The Toffees landed the likes of Lucas Digne, Yerry Mina, Andre Gomes, Bernard and Richarlison over the summer, but one position that may still need strengthening is in attack.
Cenk Tosun’s goal against Fulham on Saturday was his first of the season, and Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Oumar Niasse don’t offer much as competition right now.
As a result, a new striker may be a target in January, and The Mirror report that Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck is emerging as a top target for the club.
Welbeck, 27, is out of contract at the end of the season, and with a new deal looking unlikely, the England international may move on either as a free agent next summer or in a cut-price move in January.
The former Manchester United forward may be keen on a move back to the North, and Everton may just give him the first-team football he has been craving for some time.
It would be a similar deal to how Everton lured Theo Walcott away from Arsenal in January of this year, but some aren’t so keen, hoping that the Toffees will swerve a move for Welbeck whilst praying that he will stay away from Goodison Park.
Others don’t understand how fans can say no to Welbeck as he is better than what Everton already have in attack, and hope that he will join the Toffees in January to bolster Silva’s attacking options.
We better completely swerve that one https://t.co/wsZte5QW9P— P.O.G. (@Poggymac87) October 3, 2018

Arsenal striker Welbeck could make shock Premier League move https://t.co/pe87wHcpgN
Would take him as a squad player not our no.1 striker tho— Max (@MAefc1878) October 3, 2018
Better than every striker we have, it’s a yes from me. Even if we start a complete reshuffle up top, all them need to go.— Hayden (@glioriginali_) October 4, 2018
Look at our strikers right now and tell me he’s not an improvement. Proven premier league goalscorer, how could we turn that down?— Kyle Clayton (@KClayFootball) October 3, 2018
Imagine saying no to Danny Welbeck when Omar Niasse is being brought on to try and win a game…— Hayden (@glioriginali_) October 3, 2018
Unpopular opinion: i would take Welbeck in a heart beat— Charlie Runkle (@EvertonianJamie) October 3, 2018
Just what’s needed another striker that doesn’t score enough— Robbie Kirkham (@Kirkham81) October 3, 2018
