Since the start of the season, Everton have struggled to get goals. They have only won twice in eight Premier League games which are also putting more pressure on Ronald Koeman.
Everton’s disappointing season together with the huge financial outlay Koeman spent for new players such as Jordan Pickford, Michael Keane, Davy Klaassen, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Wayne Rooney are just adding to the problems of the club as they still do not have a proper striker.
The Toffees may have wished they secured a deal for Tottenham Hotspur winger Son Heung-min in 2016. However, the club failed to transfer the player as they also had to compete with Leicester City and Wolfsburg for the signature of the winger.
The 26-year-old South Korean international joined Spurs from Bayer Leverkusen in 2015 and made 14 goals and six assists in the Premier League last season.
Everton should probably consider a move for Son in January especially if he is not going to be a regular starter for Tottenham.
Son has only started just three Premier League games for Spurs and the club may not be ready to give him on a transfer since he is a known versatile player for Mauricio Pochettino. Still, if Koeman gets a chance to bid for Son, Everton should take that chance especially that they need a player that knows how to hard work off the ball like Son.
