Premier League outfit Everton have opened discussions with their counterparts at Southampton, over a deal for a key member of the Saints’ frontline.
The player in question? Che Adams.
The subject of reinforcements up top, of course, has long proven a headline talking point on the blue half of the Merseyside divide.
This comes owing both to the ongoing fitness woes of star Toffees frontman Dominic Calvert-Lewin, and Neil Maupay’s struggles to fill in for the England international.
The powers that be at Goodison Park, in turn, recently moved to bring in highly-regarded Sporting CP talent Youssef Chermiti.
Evidently, though, Sean Dyche and co. remain of the opinion that Everton’s frontline is in need of yet more fresh blood.
In turn, on Thursday, talks have been kicked into gear over a potential deal for the aforementioned Che Adams.
As per a report from transfer journalist Alan Nixon, since backed by a number of sources across the English media, the respective boards at Everton and Southampton are negotiating the terms of an agreement which would see hitman Adams make his way back to the Premier League.
This comes after the Toffees tabled an offer worth a sum in the region of £12 million.
Adams, for his part, managed 10 goals and three assists in 35 appearances across all competitions last season.
He has since followed up with two more goals in two Championship appearances to open the new term, too.
