Alan Myers drops Everton transfer update amid reported imminent bid for CL-bound forward

The Sky Sports journalist reported on Wednesday (16 August) when asked about the Toffees’ reported interest in the Belgium international.

RMC Sport’s Sacha Tavolieri claimed that Everton were lining up a bid for the 20-year-old as they looked to address their attacking woes.View Tweet

Via Twitter, Myers wrote, “I believe no truth in Bakayoko but just what I’ve heard, who knows?”

Move on

Bakayoko will be playing in the Champions League this season after they go through the qualifiers and will have ambitions of getting his name out on the European stage.

Unless it’s crazy money, a move to Everton would not tempt him and the club are in no position to give him that.

He’s also not a prolific goal scorer so this is not a move that suddenly makes the Toffees a genuine top-10 contender.

They need someone who can come in and bring that mentality of finding the back of the net every week and proving to be a real goal threat.

Whenever Dominic Calvert-Lewin was firing on all cylinders that’s the sort of threat he carried and they need to find someone like that.

Sean Dyche has wanted a striker since he joined in January and he surely will have desired options in mind so hopefully, one of them can walk through the door sooner rather than later.
