Everton want to sign 20-goal striker with the Championship side open to a sale

According to VI, Everton is interested in signing Swansea striker Joel Piroe this summer despite their “limited budget.” As relays the GoodisonNews, the Championship side is reportedly open to a sale. Everton has struggled to score goals in the past two Premier League seasons, with only 77 goals in 76 games. They are determined to find a dependable goalscorer to avoid another relegation battle in the upcoming season.

Joel Piroe, who scored 20 goals in all competitions during the 2022/23 season, has expressed his intention not to renew his contract with Swansea, which expires in 2024. As a result, the 23-year-old Dutch striker has attracted the attention of Everton, with manager Sean Dyche keeping a close eye on him.

They wrote (2 July): “Everton, which only has a limited transfer budget, could use a scoring striker. Everton is one of the clubs Joel Piroe has on his wish list. In addition, it is expected that Swansea will cooperate, as Piroe’s contract has only one year left.”

At his current age, he is poised for significant development. Given his limited experience at the highest level, if Calvert-Lewin remains fit and in top form, he probably won’t mind being a backup for a while. This could be an ideal acquisition to step up and fill a void when Calvert-Lewin is injured or facing difficulties. Moreover, his impressive scoring record makes it a worthwhile risk.
