Everton boss Ronald Koeman – who has been the most aggressive operator in the summer window – is eyeing a move for Hammers target Olivier Giroud.
Clearly expecting to be armed with up to £85 million from any Romelu Lukaku deal, the Toffees manager is prowling around any and every target this summer.
Giroud has been tipped to quit the Emirates if Arsenal complete their deals for a new striker with Alexandre Lacazette the chief target.
However Hammers sources remain confident that Giroud is ready to cross London should Arene Wenger give the nod for him to leave .
A club insider told CandH: “We are optimistic and are ready to offer the best terms. The London Factor is very much key as he is well settled in the capital with his family.
Everton ae re expected to pocket £85m from Chelsea for Lukaku despite paying £28m for him in 2014. The Toffees are being linked with every striker available in the transfer window and pushing up prices in the process.,
One big thing though, he said in an interview that he will either stay in London or go home to France.
His home is close to Rush green and he likes his hub caps and car stereo.
Everton = this year’s Leeds?
Everton are after everyone if the press are to be believed.Come August they will have a 250 man pl squad not 25…..
Its all well and good them having a splurge on the back of a co owners money and expected income from Lukaku/Barkley but what are they going to spend next summer if they want to maintain this buying bug they have??
It is all going to end in tears i think…..
How are they this seasons Leeds?.They are not in debt and will be selling Lukaku and Barkley for a combined £100 million.
Never gonna happen as Giroud has stated that he wants to stay in London.
Last season we were linked with everyone, its lazy journalism, Everton have been impressive its fair to say on the buys they have made but losing Lukaku will be huge for them, they need a goal scorer, I still don’t understand why we aren’t pushing for Lucas Perez he is a natural goal scorer and can’t get a look in at the gooners.
That makes sense to me also 32.
How do you know we aren’t?
