Everton opinion: Silva to reignite interest in Borja Iglesias – good choice?
Earlier in January, the Sun reported that Everton
He added the right players in the right positions, which
Even Yerry Mina, despite all his issues with injuries this season, has done well, with Kurt Zouma stepping in when required. However, one player that the Portuguese manager failed to add over the summer was a new striker.
While he does have both Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Cenk Tosun at his disposal, neither of the two is a reliable goalscorer.
Sure, Calvert-Lewin is a workaholic who has done relatively well this season but the Englishman has managed only six goals. Tosun, on the other hand, has struggled since a move to Everton last January, only doing well in the first six months.

Everton went their way and Iglesias stayed at Espanyol, continuing to bang in goals on a regular basis in the La Liga. So far, he has 15 goals across two competitions, averaging a goal every two games for Espanyol. That is at a much better rate than any Everton player.
Richarlison has averaged one every 190 minutes and Sigurdsson one every 220 minutes. What does make him perfect for the Premier League is his 6’2”
Iglesias loves shooting at goal, always ready to threaten a goalkeeper from range. It adds to his clinical nature, averaging 2.4 shots per game and 1.2 key passes.
