Sky Sports journalist Alan Myers has claimed that Everton could be keen on signing Niclas Fullkrug in the January transfer market.
Heading into the break for the 2022 World Cup, the Toffees hadn’t been playing the best football. As a result, they currently sit just one point and one place above the relegation zone.
With that in mind, it seems quite likely that Frank Lampard will want some reinforcements in the winter window and one man who seems to be earning the interest of some Premier League teams is Werder Bremen forward Fullkrug.
While speaking on All Together Now about strikers that could be signed by the Toffees in the upcoming transfer window, Myers said of Fullkrug: “He came on, scored a couple of goals for Germany in one of the games and looks really lively.
“And I know there’s definitely a lot of interest in the Premier League for him. Whether it comes or not, I don’t know.
“I’d watch that one.”
TIF Thoughts on Niclas Fullkrug and Everton…
Having impressed at the World Cup, Fullkrug has certainly shown he knows how to handle himself on the big stage. Back in Germany, he has 10 goals in 14 Bundesliga games too.
Everton may well need a striker as well, seeing as Dominic Calvert-Lewin has scored just a single goal in the Premier League this term and has struggled for fitness of late.
By the sounds of it, the Toffees won’t be alone in their interest in Fullkrug – which is no surprise after the impressive campaign he’s had so far for club and country. And so, if they want to get this deal done they may have to act fast or else risk losing him to a rival.
