Everton linked to former Manchester City forward Edin Dzeko

Everton

Everton are reportedly interested in signing the veteran forward during this summer transfer window.

Moreover, it is even said that Dzeko could be a better option for the Merseyside club in the front line.

A report from this month includes Everton as one of the Premier League clubs who are interested in signing the 36-year-old. The report even added that despite a prolific season at Inter Milan, they could still leave him this summer. The Bosnian striker has been consistent in his performances across countries ranging from Germany to England to Italy.

He made his name playing for Manchester City before he moved on to Roma. For Roma, he was extraordinary as well. He scored 118 goals in the 257 matches that he played at the club.

When he played for Roma he even earned the praise of Roma’s former manager Eusebio De Francesco and he said:

I must say, he’s an extraordinary player, and not just in terms of his finishing – he gets the team playing, brings the ball down and produces good service for his teammates. He’s a fantastic professional, his pre-match preparations are always spot-on.”

Dzeko, at Inter, succeeded in scoring 17 goals and providing 10 assists from the 48 appearances that he made for the club.

Therefore, Dzeko is a key player who could be important for Everton in the coming season. Especially after Richarlison departed, Dzeko’s presence would provide confidence to the frontline.

Dzeko could prove to be a key player at Everton

It is thought that if Dzeko could be signed he would prove to be a better option.

Moreover, he would also be an upgrade from Calvert-Lewin who is very much injury-prone. Last season, he was able to score only five goals from 17 Premier League games. Moreover, he missed a chunk of matches with injury.

Therefore, it is projected that not only is Dzeko more consistent than Calvert-Lewin but his ‘build-up’ play is also significantly advanced.
