Report: Everton could re-ignite interest in securing signature of £14m PSG target – originally posted on Sportslens.com
Everton reportedly could look to sign a new striker in the summer transfer window.
According to reports from Tuttomercatoweb (h/t Liverpool Echo), a host of clubs including Everton, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, AC Milan and Rome are interested in securing the services of Dutch striker Joshua Zirkzee in the summer window.
Everton were reportedly keen to sign the young talent in the January window, with Sky Sports reporting that the Toffees were in talks to land the exciting Bayern Munich young talent.
However, he joined Italian club Parma on loan instead. The Italian side have been relegated from Serie A this season, and it is highly unlikely that they will be triggering his £14 million option-to-buy clause to sign him permanently from Bayern Munich.
Everton are back in the frame for his signature, but they face competition from a host of clubs.
The Toffees have Dominic Calvert-Lewin as their first-choice striker, but Carlo Ancelotti needs a solid backup option.
Everton are unlikely to keep Joshua King with them beyond the summer, while Cenk Tosun is expected to secure a move away from Everton permanently.
Moise Kean has impressed heavily for PSG, on loan from Everton, and the French giants are looking to keep him with them.
The 19-year-old has barely featured this season, managing only four substitute appearances in Serie A.
