Toffees are keen to beef up their strike force next season.
Everton have stepped up their attempts to sign coveted FC Copenhagen striker Andreas Cornelius at the end of the season, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.
The Merseyside club have by all accounts made the addition of a new front man their number one priority for when the transfer window reopens on June 1, with head coach David Moyes having checked out a number of potential striking targets already this year.
However, it is understood that the Scot has decided on taking a massive gamble by bringing the youngster to Goodison Park this summer, despite the fact that the Denmark international is just 20 years old and has been playing for FC Copenhagen for only a year now.
But, in that time Cornelius has caught the attentions of a whole host of clubs on the Continent by netting an incredible 20 goals in just 40 matches in all competitions for club and country, while this season in particular the forward has been in eye-catching form in front of goal, registering 18 goals in only 26 league contests for his club.
Until David Moyes’ Everton future is resolved though, it may prove difficult for the club’s recruitment process to work to full effect.
