News surrounding Manchester United forward Amad Diallo may now have been given Everton a boost ahead of the summer transfer window.

Indeed, it was reported that Everton are interested in taking the 20-year-old on loan this season, following his successful 14-goal loan spell at Sunderland last year.

The Toffees are one of a few clubs looking at Diallo, but reports emerging from The Athletic could give Everton a boost in their pursuit of the young forward.

The Athletic report that Manchester United will look to loan Diallo out once again this season, however they prefer that he gets experience at a Premier League club, indicating that a return to Sunderland may be off the cards.

The report states: “The most likely scenario, as it stands, is for Erik ten Hag to assess Amad during pre-season and perhaps send him on loan to another Premier League club.”

Diallo on loan could be a short-term striking solution for Everton amidst financial uncertainty.

Everton may be forced to exploit the loan market this summer as the club’s financial situation may prevent Sean Dyche from spending big.

A 14-goal return from Diallo in the Championship last season is impressive, especially for such a young and inexperienced forward.

Investment in Everton’s forward line will be crucial this summer, and the club cannot begin the season without at least one new striker in the squad.

Diallo may be young, but he has already showcased his scoring abilities in a challenging league, with 14 goals and three assists across 39 games last season.

Alongside loan deals, free transfers may offer Everton cost effective recruitment, with the likes of Moussa Dembele available for nothing this summer.

Indeed, it be will a summer of transition for the Blues, and hopefully Sean Dyche has some shrewd signings lined up ahead of the new season.
