Everton’s pursuit of El Bilal Toure is far from over, with negotiations ongoing between the club and Almeria over the promising striker’s potential move to Goodison Park, relays the Everton.News. Sky Sports, sharing the update on their Twitter page, reported that the 21-year-old Mali international is yet to make a final decision on his future, and the battle for his signature remains open.
Despite recent reports suggesting that Toure had already opted to join Serie A side Atalanta instead of Everton, there is still hope for the Toffees that they might secure the talented striker during this transfer window. Everton fans will be eagerly anticipating the outcome as they wait for the final verdict.
Toure’s high demand is justified given his impressive performances last season. With 7 goals in 20 appearances in La Liga, the 15-cap Mali international showcased his goal-scoring prowess. The Almeria No. 9 started the season strongly, finding the net 3 times in his first 5 matches for the club. However, his progress was hindered by an injury in the second half of the campaign.
The reported £34 million offer from Everton for Toure represents a calculated risk. Questions remain about whether the young player is ready to lead the line for a struggling Premier League side. Nevertheless, his undeniable talent and potential for further growth make him an exciting addition to Sean Dyche’s attacking options.
As the transfer talks continue, Everton will be eagerly awaiting El Bilal Toure’s decision. His potential arrival could bolster the team’s attacking force and provide a much-needed boost to their ambitions for the upcoming season. The final days of the transfer window are sure to be filled with anticipation and hope for the Toffees as they vie to secure the signature of the highly sought-after striker.
