4 Strikers Everton Should Target to Solve Their Issue Up Front in January

Everton have had a decent start to the season under Marco Silva, and while they're looking like they're moving in the right direction, their new boss will be well aware of the deficiencies in his squad, and what he needs to address going forward.


The key issue is at centre forward. 


Richarlison has been playing as a sole striker and despite scoring eight league goals so far this season, it is clear that playing up front on his own isn't his best use.


Therefore Everton need a top class striker sooner rather than later - and here's a few realistic options for them.

4. Callum Wilson

Callum Wilson has been on fire so far this season. He has 8 goals in 16 Premier League appearances and scored on his England debut against USA in November. 


He has a very impressive goal scoring record for Bournemouth and at 26 years of age, his best years are arguably ahead of him. 


Wilson is very prone to injuries but if he could stay fit, then he could be a perfect fit for Everton - the problem is, however, that Chelsea are sniffing around.

3. Fedor Chalov

Fedor Chalov is a bit of an unknown. He made his debut at CSKA Moscow at the age of 18 and since then has 21 goals in 52 Russia top flight games, while he also scored against Arsenal in last season's Europa League. 


He has formed a formidable partnership in Russia this season with Everton loanee Nikola Vlasic, who both could be ready for Everton's first team next season.

2. Krzysztof Piatek

Krzysztof Piatek joined Genoa in the summer from Cracovia in Poland for around £4m. Since then he has scored 12 goals in 16 Serie A games, and 18 in 18 in all competitions.


The 23-year-old also managed 32 goals in 61 games for Cracovia over a two-year spell, so he definitely knows how to score.


He scored his first international goal for Poland in their 2-3 Nations League defeat back in October, and he's known to be ready to join "a big club". Whether Everton are that club is anybody's guess, but he could really come into his own on Merseyside.

1. Luka Jovic

The 20-year-old is currently enduring his second season on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt from Benfica, and has this season scored 12 goals in 14 games in the Bundesliga.


He also became the youngest player in the history of the Bundesliga to score five goals in one game, against Fortuna Dusseldorf in October 2018.


He has been capped three times by Serbia but is yet to score his first international goal, but the potential is clearly there.
