Indeed, this week has seen the Blues locked in a battle for Almeria forward El Bilal Toure, with Serie A side Atalanta competing with Everton for his signature.
Everton securing Wilfred Gnonto would be big boost for Dyche ahead of new season
While the outcome of the Bilal Toure transfer saga remains unresolved, Everton appear to be turning their attention to Leeds Uniteds Wilfred Gnonto.
Gnonto signed for Leeds last year from FC Zurich for just shy of £4m, scoring four goals and contributing as many assists for the relegated side.
The youngster has already made 11 international appearances for Italy, and last year became the youngster ever goalscorer for the Azzurri, breaking Bruno Nicole’s 1958 record.
Gnonto certainly fits the profile of the type of player Everton should be recruiting this summer, with his versatility and creativity potentially vital.
The prodigious Italian has bags of potential and his national coach Roberto Mancini believes, though there is room for improvement, he has ‘quality’.
Mancini said: “Gnonto is a young boy, no one has thought of hiring him but he plays as a starter in the Premier League and that’s not a given at 19. He can still improve and he’s young, he has quality.”
The young Italian could be a very interesting signing should Sean Dyche tempt him to Goodison Park.
