As the winter transfer window comes closer and closer Everton are being linked with more and more potential transfers.
According to a report from Calciomercato, Everton will look to sign Napoli forward Hirving Lozano.
The 24-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Mexico international only joined Napoli from PSV in 2019 for 38 million euros and his contract runs to June 2024.
Lozano has played 27 times for Napoli since signing from PSV, scoring 3 goals and creating 2 assists.
The 24-year-old is considered to be one of the best forwards in Mexico. Lozano has scored 10 goals in 39 games for his country.
Carlo Ancelotti is looking to shore up his attacking options and Napoli’s Hirving Lozano happens to be a target. He is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this winter.
Everton are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
There is no doubt that Lozano will take Everton’s attack to a different level.
According to the report, “Everton coach Carlo Ancelotti is looking to bring Napoli forward Hirving Lozano to the Premier League, according to a report from Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport. The report details how the 60-year-old Italian coach still appreciates the qualities of the 24-year-old Mexican striker, who has struggled to settle in Naples since his arrival from Dutch side PSV in the summer. Ancelotti is looking to sign a new forward this month in order to help the club improve and climb up the league table. Lozano has been considered a transfer market flop, the report highlights, and so the Naples based club may be willing to sell him if they like the offer.”
