Everton are set to once again miss out on exciting prospect, as Ekitike looks West Ham bound
Everton are once again leaving it late in the window to secure targets in key areas of the pitch where investment is desperately required.
Hugo Ekitike would be a superb addition to Sean Dyche’s squad, but the Toffees now risk losing out on the young forward to West Ham United, having already missed out on targets such as Viktor Gyokeres and El Bilal Toure earlier in the window.
The Toffees have also seen a £15m bid rejected by Leeds United for Wilfried Gnonto, with the Yorkshire club determined to keep hold of the Italian international.
Everton cannot go into another season with such limited attacking options and with Demarai Gray looking likely to complete a move to Saudi Pro League side Al Shabab, Sean Dyche will have even fewer options unless reinforcements are secured.
