Everton could sign two forwards this weekend.
That’s according to Sky Sports journalist Alan Myers, who claimed yesterday that the Toffees are hopeful of completing two transfer deals this week and has now revealed there is ‘a fair chance’ it could be another forward.
Everton are closing in on their second signing of the summer transfer window, with Fabrizio Romano confirming that Villarreal’s Arnaut Danjuma is set undergo a medical tomorrow ahead of a loan move to Goodison Park.
The Dutchman links up with Sean Dyche after a disappointing loan spell with Tottenham Hotspur earlier this year after the London club hijacked Everton’s pursuit of Danjuma.
However, the winger will now finally complete a move to Merseyside and could be joined by another attacker over the next couple of days.
Danjuma was one of a number of forwards that Everton have been linked with this week, while they have failed in their pursuit of Anthony Elanga after he rejected the opportunity to move to Goodison Park.
It’s unclear which player Myers believes the Toffees could sign this week, though they are thought to still be pursuing the likes of Wilfried Gnonto, Kelechi Iheanacho and Boulaye Dia.

Kelechi Iheanacho could be a brilliant signing for Everton
There has been no concrete offer for Kelechi Iheanacho yet, however reports have claimed Everton are considering a move for the Leicester City striker.
The Nigerian has netted 30 goals in the Premier League since joining the Foxes in 2017 and was named as the club’s Player of the Year following their relegation to the Championship.
While maybe not a prolific goalscorer, Iheanacho has plenty more traits than just his ability in front of goal and could prove a real attacking threat for Everton.
Given that the 26-year-old is reportedly available for as little as £10 million, the Toffees should put a lot of effort in bringing him back to the top flight.
