Everton are thought to be monitoring Nigeria forward Ahmed Musa's situation at Leicester City with a possible loan move for Musa in-case a recall from loan for Henry Onyekuru in January falls through, 90Minutesgoal.com reports.
A top source of the player told 90MinutesGoal that Musa has decided to move elsewhere once the transfer windows open in January as he is becoming increasingly frustrated with life at the King Power Stadium.
Also the source stated that 24-year-old Musa is aiming at getting his starting position back in the national team which he has lost to Moses Simon who plays for Belgian Pro League club KAA Gent.
The source said, Musa fears losing a place in the 23-man squad Nigeria's coach Gernot Rohr will take to the world Cup party in Russia due to the emergence of young and outstanding talents who are doing well in Europe, one of whom is Henry Onyekuru of Everton who is currently on loan at Anderlecht.
Musa is becoming frustrated with life in East Midlands as he has failed to nail a regular place in Leicester City after his big money (£16 million) move from Russian side CSKA moscow in 2016.
All efforts to form a formidable and fearsome strike partnership between Ahmed Musa and Jamie Vardy have failed; neither could Musa challenge Riyad Mahrez and Marc Albrighton for a place on the flank.

His goals per game ratio is nowt to write home about either for the "Fox in the Box" he can only be given his build and height, unless you take his time in Russia into account, but we all know the limitations of what Russia's previously delivered to us at significant expense.

That's what really set Duncan Ferguson apart. He was a big man who did jump, so was unrivalled in the air, and on the ground, he could spin on a six-pence like he did when he scored 2 against Man Utd.
However, I heard the three of them have started a £100m race, the winner should finish next Tuesday.
Bas Dost is an awful player. An absolute donkey. He makes Straq look like Messi.

Of course there's a lot of strikers I'd sign ahead of him, but are they available in the next window and then would they wanna sign for a mid-table team which is the very best we can hope for, come January?!

Cenk Tosan... yes please... real quality this lad!
Break the bank time, Moshiri... make a real fucking statement come January, eh?!

For all his knockers, Dost has a very good goal record and was decent at Wolfsburg. We need a big striker if Koeman is still manager in January.
Who else is available? Giroud?! Well yes, if he'll come and the fee is still around £25m. Benteke?! Palace were rumoured to want £40m in the summer. Would anyone seriously pay that for Benteke who hasn't scored this season?! Slimani?! He might be worth a shout and would be a lot better than Musa. We should have signed Llorente or even got Vincent Janssen on loan.
Of course, there's better strikers than Dost. I'd still go for Dembele from Celtic who seems a realistic target and a player who is at the age to become something really special.
It's gonna all come down to price and availability and I think we're gonna struggle to bring someone in, in January. That's why I'd sign Dost, a target man with a proven goal scoring record over 3 different leagues, but not if it's going to be silly money.

Easy rumour with the link with Walsh.
File under moon landing never happened.

What a deal!
What a Manager!!
What a Chairman!!!

We will struggle to get anywhere this season until a top striker is recruited. Don't ask me who, because we are not prepared to pay the going rate.
So mediocrity beckons at best for our future destiny, unless Moshiri puts the business head on that made him his money in the first place and starts kicking arse and a clear out of the deadwood. There's a lot of it, so where do you start?
Koeman & Kenwright would be a start and then attract a top quality striker. We have a number of very good players who just need moulding into a team.

Based on the Atalanta game, the return leg will be interesting to see how their centre-forward plays. He done us good style that night but we were all over the place and made The Keystone Cops, look good.
Whoever we get, or if we get must be ready to go Day 1.
Here's to a win at Brighton and a turn of form, as the season is hanging on a thread.

I read Kane linked for close to double the Lukaku money earlier today.

And Ray, I'm sorry but you are quite wrong about spending. Everton pays so far above "the going rate" (see the useless pair of Klaassen and Sigurdsson), it is beyond belief.
