Everton tipped to swoop for departing Man United loanee

Everton are expressing a keen interest in the signature of a soon-to-be former member of the first-team setup at Premier League rivals Manchester United, according to reports.

The player in question? Wout Weghorst.

Frontman Weghorst, of course, spent the 2nd half of this past season on loan at Old Trafford.

On the back of the winter departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, the Dutchman was brought in from Burnley, to provide emergency cover up top.

Weghorst subsequently went on to endure something of a hit-and-miss stint in Manchester, notching just two goals in 31 appearances across all competitions.

In turn, it came as little surprise when word was forthcoming in the media that the powers that be at United had come to the decision not to make the powerful attacker’s signature permanent.

This comes amid claims on the part of talkSPORT that Everton are interested in bringing the 30-year-old to Goodison Park this summer.

Amid ongoing speculation surrounding the future of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Weghorst, it is understood, has been identified as a leading target to add to Sean Dyche’s options through the middle in 2023/24.
