Dyche interested in forward for Everton previously flagged by PRT

Reports today claim that Sean Dyche is keeping tabs on a forward that we have previously flagged as one for the Blues to consider as they search for new attacking talent.

Everton will of course have very limited funds this summer given their continuing financial problems and the ongoing crisis over the club's ownership.

A result of this is the inevitable consequence that results from all these problems, which is that the Toffees will be forced to sell several of their better young players to help balance the books when the summer transfer window opens.

So, the Blues will have to be very careful with their recruitment policy over the course of the window and will likely have to rely mainly on loans and possibly too free transfers.

Hopefully though Everton won't have to rely solely on such routes to acquiring new talent and will perhaps have a bit of money to spend on other players.

And there are players around who will probably be very affordable, especially if thy are currently at clubs which have been relegated from the Premier League or failed to gain promotion from the Championship.

One such player is Elijah Adebayo who's team Luton Town have just gone down after one campaign in the top flight.

Adebayo has been arguably the Hatters most effective forward and his absence through injury over the last few months of the season was perhaps a key factor in their eventual relegation.

He is a player I have previously identified as a target Everton should seriously consider if they are looking (as they should be) for affordable attacking talent.

The 26-year-old scored ten times a respectable figure especially for such a struggling side and he would surely have been Luton's top scorer if he had been fit all campaign long.

Given his strengths he looks a good fit for the way that Dyche likes to play and today's report in the Echo claim the Blues boss is interested in him.

They query whether signing him would make sense given that Everton already have Beto and Youssef Chermiti as well as Dominic Calvert-Lewin up front.

I would argue that frankly Beto has proved to be a busted flush and if the Toffees can get something for him this summer maybe they should cut their losses.

But also I think Calvert-Lewin might leave this summer if a decent offer comes in for him as he only has a year left on his contract.

Adebayo could also play behind the lone striker in Dyche's favoured 4-4-1-1 formation so offering some versatility.

This will be important for the manager who will almost certainly again have to juggle limited playing resources next season.

Without sales though I can't see Everton moving for any players other than loans and free agents, so we may have wait a while before seeing whether Adebayo or another similar player comes into the club's sights.
