Everton are ‘seriously looking’ at Lille forward Timothy Weah as they look to add to their forward line this month.

That’s according to L’Equipe, who say the Blues are one of several Premier League sides looking at the American.

The newspaper explains that Weah has had something of a mixed year, with a foot injury at the start of the season hampering him and limiting his playing time.

He has also been used out of position as a right back at times, something which has contributed to a lack of form.

However, he managed to pick himself up and impress at the World Cup with the USA, bagging a goal in the 1-1 draw with Wales. That helped him to ‘catch the eye’ of several foreign sides and Everton are one of them.

They are said to be ‘looking to sign’ the forward, with Frank Lampard desperate to improve his forward options in this window.

His side have struggled for goals this season as Dominic Calvert-Lewin has continued to be held back by injury issues and Neal Maupay has failed to fill the void.

Wide players such as Anthony Gordon and Demarai Gray have also failed to add regular goals to their game, hence Everton being desperate to add to their options.

They’ve been linked to several players as a result and Weah is the latest name added to the list, with it explained he has a ‘certain popularity’ in England.

That is presumably added to by his valuation, which is said to be ‘around €15m’ and makes him an affordable option this month.

That’s certainly the case for Everton, who have limited finances available to them following years of poor spending and the subsequent FFP issues that’s caused.

Weah would then make sense although whether a player who has only eight goals and eight assists in 85 games in France is the answer to solve their issues is up for debate.
