The 25-year-old has scored 10 times in 18 games for the Spanish club and is supposedly valued at around £27m.
The Brazilian was signed by Sociedad from Deportivo Maldonado having not ever made a senior appearance for the club. Instead he journeyed through six loan spells, including one with Real Madrid and a season each at Real Zaragoza and Las Palmas

Besides, your data is inaccurate he's scored 9 in 22, not 10 in 18 (league play only). He was only loaned to Real Madrid Castilla (their B team), too, and not the first team.

We have invested in two youngsters in Ademola Lookman and Calvert-Lewin. it's about time we bit the bullet and gave them more than a handful of games before throwing them on the Premier League scrapheap like we have with so many before.
From recent performances it is obvious we need a goalkeeper and a more creative passer of the ball in midfield. De Gea at Man Utd, Cech at Arsenal and Courtois at Chelsea all positively contribute to their points tally. Robles and Stek have the opposite effect.
Ross is the only player we have tried as the creative driving force in our midfield. I would persist with him but only with a more senior acquisition to mentor and guide him and pick the pieces up when Ross goes missing.

You've heard it here first (and last)

I don't know much about William Jose or if Walsh is genuinely interested but I'll reserve my judgement because I wouldn't doubt his ability to spot a player.

Having said that, I would prefer it if we were looking for a squad man as cover for Lukaku and not a replacement. In that case, Josh King would be worth a punt.

Nobody, apart from Swansea's scouting system, had heard of him the year before.
Where is he now?
I arrest my case, m'lud!

This guy might be better now than the aforementioned but if that is what Walsh and Koeman have been looking for why buy two teenagers?
I know "they are ones for the future" BS. There is no future anymore in the Prem. its hit the ground running or pack your bags nowadays.
We desperately need a better keeper and a better midfield general than Ross. It's the only way I can see us pushing on and competing for top 4 place in the next 2 to 3 seasons. Any ideas?

Anyway, if Everton are to make their way up the league there will be plenty of casualties along the way. In part it is a numbers game.
Don't care how much a player costs, part of the attitude change is not to penny pinch or quote 'value'. Not our money. Do your business quickly, early and with little public knowledge and it shows me Everton are growing up as a professional club.
Undisclosed fee every time!

When Man City and Chelsea tried to crack the top four, they signed stars not journeymen.
22 Posted 12/04/2017 at 15:08:43
Vardy would do nicely.
He is fast, plays the lone striker well, excellent work rate, good link up play and knows where the net is.
IMO he is better than Lukaku but Lukaku does have more potential to develop yet.
