Everton are said to be close to wrapping up the transfer of Sandro Ramirez from Málaga but are looking to add further firepower with Romelu Lukaku widely expected to leave Goodison Park this summer.
Danish paper BT claim that the Blues have made an inquiry regarding a €20m move for Jorgensen who finished top scorer in the Eredivisie this past season for champions Feyenoord.
His compatriot, Ajax forward Kasper Dolberg, also continues to be linked with Everton.

Jorgensen is a target man a little similar to Rom. However, he doesn't do much running off the ball and requires service. Can be a little frustrating if not scoring.
Dolberg is the next big thing coming out of the Dutch league. He has pace, runs at defenders, can dribble, is a playmaker who can score from range, has a similar goals return to Lukaku, and is only 19. He would be an excellent partner to Ramirez and old team mate Klaassen.
Possibly £25-30 Million and we could have a better all-round prospect than Lukaku... No-brainer.

I would prefer it if we went for either Dembele (Celtic) Giroud (Arsenal) or Williams (Bilbao) personally.
Plus keep Lukaku!

This might court a little controversy but I have a suspicious feeling that Lukaku is going nowhere.
6 Posted 18/06/2017 at 17:34:57
Then again, lots of people, myself included, had the same opinion of Pellè when he went to Southampton and that turned out okay. Still, as replacement of Lukaku this would be underwhelming.
As a pinch hitter to turn around a game, and to play in the Europa League, I could understand this transfer.

I hope that isn't the outcome - not because I don't rate him, but because I'm really bored of the ongoing saga of 'Will he stay or will he go?"
His latest comments along the lines of, "staying at Everton is not an option" doesn't fill me with any confidence that he sees his future here.
I would like him to sign a new contract and state he's looking forward to a long successful career at Everton. Sadly I don't envisage that scenario. I'm not merely happy to have him here to run down another year of his contract just because another team is not willing to pay the transfer fee we want.

It may well be bullshit, probably is, but maybe wait until 1st July.
Nothing to do with Sandro and I will be delighted to watch him next season, regardless of Lukaku.
13 Posted 18/06/2017 at 18:55:50
In: Dembele, Sigurdsson, Keane.
Out: Lukaku, Barkley, Jagielka, Besic, McCarthy, Deulofeu, Stekelenburg.
14 Posted 18/06/2017 at 19:17:31
We need real quality. We need to break the bank for Van Djik. He would be our Vincent Kompany. We also need Sigurdsson and a striker better than Lukaku if we are to really compete.
We need Walsh to find us the next Suarez. Easier said than done but, for me, we'll still be hitting a glass ceiling without filling those key positions.
15 Posted 18/06/2017 at 20:09:48
16 Posted 18/06/2017 at 20:19:26
And Klaassen for that matter? (Or just tell me where you've already posted it.)
17 Posted 18/06/2017 at 20:52:08
Someone from the Premier League or an experienced European scorer from a more challenging league. I like the look of Dolberg but is he ready to take on the mantle? He'd be a considerable risk I'd say.
Batshuayi, Giroud, Josh King, Bacca, Lacazette (optimistic!)... I am sure there are better names I've forgotten but, if Lukaku goes, then his replacement should be the most important signing this Summer.
18 Posted 18/06/2017 at 22:16:00
I think we will play a bit like Liverpool a few season ago: 3 up top who can press and then the 3 midfielders pressing and the back 4 playing higher up the pitch, maybe the half-way line. So Everton will not need a big striker anymore, as such, but a quick energy front 3.

Just saying... for those who think he might not fall into the football themed Game of Thrones that plays out with the so-called big movers every summer.
24 Posted 19/06/2017 at 02:31:55
I would absolutely go for Giroud, technique and proven at Premier League and European level.
Excellent at bringing others into play, very good with his head. Really a facet Everton have lacked for years. A key component when trying to breakdown stubborn sides.
Whatever our summer shopping, a centre-forward like Giroud should be a must. Variety in attack is essential to avoid over reliance, and a reasonable tactic range.

On Klaassen, I think best thing is to search here. Just hit ctrl-F and type in "Erik Dols" and look for at least two posts. ;-)
Dolberg: huge potential. The lad is a natural finisher, ice cold in front of goal. But he is far from the finished product. He scored against Lyon in both matches of the semi-final in the Europa League, and he scored the equalizer away against eventual champions Feyenoord.
Apart from those goals, almost all his goals were against lesser competition: only 4 of his 16 goals in the competition were against teams that ended up in the upper half of the table and only the Feyenoord-goal was against a team ending in the top-6 in the Eredivisie. He's not all about scoring goals btw, he can hold the ball and get past a defender.
If we would sign him, I don't expect him in the first team too much in the first two seasons. It would be best for the lad to stay at Ajax for at least one more year.

29 Posted 19/06/2017 at 11:09:16
From what you've said about Dolberg, I wonder if we could buy him now and loan him back to Ajax for at least next season.
30 Posted 19/06/2017 at 22:38:28
31 Posted 20/06/2017 at 09:07:38
Can we please stop signing players?!
32 Posted 20/06/2017 at 09:43:31
Honestly, who had heard of Graeme Sharp before we got him? Honestly now, no cheating.
33 Posted 20/06/2017 at 10:21:19
17 assists for a striker! Impressive stats.
34 Posted 20/06/2017 at 10:59:57
In Europe no goals and one assist against Fenerbahçe and Man Utd, only teams they played that were interesting. With stats like these, it's always wise to look a little bit deeper. ;-)
I have to admit that he scores (and gives assists) a lot against teams from the upper half of the table, it's not just relegation fodder he relishes. But still, I'm not convinced. I think he found his level in the Eredivisie and will struggle in a better league.
35 Posted 22/06/2017 at 09:27:45
36 Posted 22/06/2017 at 09:51:48
My reasoning there being that both are talented and young, we don't know what Lukaku is doing, (don't think he knows himself) but should he stay, there would be competition for a place and he would have to play consistently to keep his place.
Should it be that we have too many strikers (never thought as an Evertonian, I would ever say that), we could loan one out (what Chelsea do all the time) being involved in more competitions this coming season we may need them all!
Good times ahead, whatever happens.
