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.
