Everton could look to Andre Ayew now the January transfer window is over as a short-term signing until the end of the campaign.
What’s the latest?
The Toffees ended the January window without bringing a single new face in through the doors at Goodison Park for Sean Dyche to work with.
This comes amid the club’s struggles in the Premier League which has them sitting second bottom with just 15 points from their opening 20 games.
However, there have been some reports suggesting the Merseyside club could potentially make a move for the Ghanaian forward Ayew.
And speaking to Football FanCast, journalist Pete O’Rourke has supported this possibility suggesting the 33-year-old could bring something to Dyche’s side:
“He’s a versatile forward as well, he can play in several positions. So if Everton are desperate to bring in a forward, which we think they are, I think Andre Ayew will be a sensible short-term signing.”
Top flight experience
Ayew is no stranger to the Premier League having spent some time with West Ham United and Swansea City between 2015 and 2018.
Indeed, the 33-year-old was able to rack up 89 appearances in the English top flight where he was able to return 21 goals and 12 assists (via Transfermarkt).
And Ayew could potentially land at Goodison Park in some relatively impressive goalscoring form with 18 goals in 30 appearances in the Qatar Stars League.
However, scoring in the Premier League is a different matter and his previous record with West Ham and Swansea may concern some of the fans at Goodison.
But the reality is, as a result of their dismal January window, there wouldn’t be any harm done in bringing in a free agent like Ayew over the coming days.
Scoring goals has been a major issue for the Toffees this season and with their second-highest scorer this season, Anthony Gordon, now not at the club, any extra help may prove huge.
And as O’Rourke has hinted at, Ayew is an incredibly versatile player who has played in a number of positions across his career which may prove incredibly useful for Dyche in the remaining games this season.
