Everton ‘keeping tabs’ on Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic – Telegraph

Everton targeting striking reinforcements

Everton are reportedly keeping tabs on Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic, with Marco Silva looking to sign a forward this summer.

The Toffees are yet to adequately replace Romelu Lukaku since his departure to Manchester United back in 2017.

Everton signed Wayne Rooney to help ease the burden of Lukaku’s departure, but he was often played in midfield.

Cenk Tosun then signed from Besiktas, but despite an impressive first few months, the Turkish international now looks to be a fringe option.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin was Everton’s main striker last season but, despite having enjoyed a solid campaign, the Toffees are in need of a top-quality striker if they are to break the top six next season.

Now, they could sign one in Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic.

Mandzukic to the Premier League?

According to the Telegraph’s Jason Burt, Everton are ‘keeping tabs’ on Juventus’ Croatian striker.

It’s said that ‘The 33-year-old forward is wanted by head coach Marco Silva who is looking to sign two forward players this summer.’ 

The report goes on to explain that Maurizio Sarri is ‘keen’ to play Cristiano Ronaldo in a central role, and also wants to keep hold of Paulo Dybala.

As a result, Mandzukic could find time on the pitch hard to come by.

With that in mind, ‘Everton are waiting to discover whether Juventus are willing to part with the Croatian international who played a key role in his country’s run to last year’s World Cup Final.’

Finally, the Telegraph claim that it remains to be seen whether Mandzukic would be willing to move to the Premier League.

For now, this is one to keep an eye on.
