Everton have made quite the splash in the transfer market so far this summer, with the Goodison Park side confirming five new additions to Ronald Koeman’s squad already.
We’re already splashing the cash has delighted the club’s supporters, with further business expected before the Premier League season starts in August.
Koeman has been vocal over his desire to add players to his squad that can contribute goals next season, with the Dutch trainer looking to make Everton a more-dangerous outfit.
Danish newspaper BT have recently reported that the Toffees are running the rule over attacking pair Kasper Dolberg and Nicolai Jorgensen, who starred in the Eredivisie in 2016-17.
The Everton attack is set to look markedly different next season, with speculation still circling the futures of both Ross Barkley and Romelu Lukaku.
However, regardless of whether this duo stay at Goodison or are sold, the Danish pair make for exciting transfer targets; their signings would shorten the odds of Everton having a good season with Sportsbook Denmark.
Everton have already signed Davy Klaassen from Ajax this summer and his Amsterdam-based club-team Dolberg would surely be an inspired addition also.
The 19-year-old exploded onto the scene in his first season in Holland, scoring 16 Eredivisie goals and impressing with his maturity, ability on the ball and calmness under pressure.
Dolberg is reportedly coveted across Europe and the teenager seems destined for the very pinnacle of the game.
Given that Klaassen is already in the Toffees ranks, linking this Ajax pair together at Goodison would be an exciting prospect for Everton fans ahead of next season.
Jorgensen meanwhile finished 2016-17 as the Eredivisie’s top goalscorer, netting 21 times in 32 outings in his debut campaign at Feyenoord.
The 26-year-old has always been a player of significant promise and he has shown over the last 12 months why he is so highly rated in Denmark.
Blessed with blistering pace and a predatory eye for goal, Jorgensen is an out-and-out striker that would diversify Everton’s options in the final third.
Should Lukaku leave, signing the Dane as a replacement and having him and fellow new signing Sandro Ramirez in contention for the number nine role could be a winning formula for Koeman’s men.
Given the amount of money that Everton have already spent, expectations ahead of next season are already high, with a challenge to finish in the Premier League top four the objective for the ambitious club.
While all the signs are there that Koeman’s men are ready to compete with English football’s elite, the acquisition of these two Danish stars could well be final piece of the jigsaw in the Toffees’ attempts to qualify for the Champions League.
