Everton are in the market for attacking reinforcements this summer, and it's becoming clear that Marco Silva and Marcel Brands are pursuing a left-footed winger.

The Toffees already have a host of right-footed wingers on the books. Bernard, Richarlison, Theo Walcott and Ademola Lookman all fit that bill, as do returning loanees Yannick Bolasie, Kevin Mirallas and Henry Onyekuru.

Bolasie and Mirallas will surely leave, paving the way for a left-footed winger to come in and play on the right flank, cutting inside to cause mayhem.

 

A host of options have been touted; Bertrand Traore, Cengiz Under, David Neres and Andrija Zivkovic have all been linked, but Everton shouldn't forget about Jarrod Bowen.

The Hull City star has been watched by Brands and co this season according to the Daily Mail, and whilst those foreign names are exciting, Bowen shouldn't be ignored having impressed with his pace, skill and long-range shooting.

Bowen, 22, just hit 22 goals in 46 Championship games, emerging as one of the Championship's top wingers, and whilst some fans may not think he's a big enough name, Bowen can make the step up.

The likes of David Brooks and James Maddison have excelled immediately after leaving the Championship, and Bowen could be the latest success story after his stunning goal record.

He's a huge fan of Silva, praising the Everton boss in an interview with Sky Sports having worked together at Hull City, and he'd surely love to reunite as a result.

The likes of Under and Neres are exciting, but Bowen shouldn't be ignored just because he's in the Championship, and Everton should still pursue a move for the Hull ace even with bigger names on their radar.
