Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has revealed that he feels that Everton needed to sign a new striker rather than bring in Gylfi Sigurdsson from Swansea.
The Toffees lost their top goal scorer from last season Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United. They had been linked with Olivier Giroud but no deal ended up going ahead.
Though they did manage to sign Sandro Ramirez from Malaga, the Spanish international will take time to adapt to the demands of English football and has yet to score from his first five appearances for the club.
Though Everton do have immense talent within their squad, the absence of a quality forward may hamper their hopes of finishing in the top six this season
Carragher now also feels that the Merseyside club are short of quality up front and told Sky Sports as reported by the Liverpool Echo, “I know people who were at the game, speaking to Everton fans afterwards, they were very disappointed with how they performed.
“I think there is definitely a problem at centre-forward for Everton, a huge problem. I said that when they signed Sigurdsson, I think he’s a good player but centre-forwards are what they needed more than anything.”
