TRANSFER LATEST!! New Everton Boss Carlo Ancelotti Speaks On Signing A Striker In January

Posted by on December 27th, 2019

Carlo Ancelotti says he will not be asking the Everton hierarchy to sign a striker in the January transfer window.

A late header from forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin secured Ancelotti a debut win in charge of Everton against Burnley on Boxing Day.

The Italian has Richarlison, who alongside Calvert-Lewin has scored eight league goals this season, while fellow attacking options Moise Kean, Cenk Tosun and Oumar Niasse have only scored one goal between them.

Ancelotti backed Italy international Kean to fulfil his potential at his first press conference earlier this week and believes there will be no need to bolster his front line next month at this early stage of his tenure.

Asked whether he will be asking to sign a striker in January, Ancelotti replied: “No. We didn’t talk about this but for sure I am not asking for a striker because the strikers up front are really good.

“I think until January 5 we have to be focused on these next four games and after that we can talk [about] if we need something or not.”

Everton face Newcastle at St James’ Park on Saturday, followed by a trip to face Manchester City on New Year’s Day, before they face rivals Liverpool at Anfield in the FA Cup third round.


Ancelotti says he plans to make changes to his line-up for the game against Newcastle, with Michael Keane, Tom Davies, Leighton Baines and Theo Walcott all in contention for a return.
