We covered fans urging Everton to get involved and sign Haller from Eintracht Frankfurt, believing that missing out on the Frenchman was 'unbelievable'.
Haller did end up completing his move to West Ham, having seen him hit 20 goals and 12 assists last season, and the 25-year-old is now their club-record signing.
Everton ended up signing an even more exciting striker in teenager Moise Kean, and they could be about to benefit from that Haller move after all.
Wiesbadener Kurier in Germany report that Eintracht Frankfurt now want Everton's Cenk Tosun to replace Haller, and even carry quotes from the 28-year-old confirming contact about a move.
The Turkish international has failed to really impress since joining from Besiktas in January 2018, and Everton would maybe like to get him off the books, with Kean and Dominic Calvert-Lewin on board, and Richarlison able to play up front too.
Recouping their money on Tosun and having money in the bank for January would be ideal for Everton, and a move may be appealing to the striker himself too.
Tosun was born in Wetzlar, just outside of Frankfurt, and even started his professional career with the Bundesliga side, so returning home to kickstart his career could be perfect for all.
Missing out on Haller seemed disappointing at the time, but with Kean signed and Tosun potentially sold to replace Haller, Everton would certainly benefit in the end – if that Tosun move does go through this month.
