Do we think he already has the capability to change a game from the bench?

That’s what we should be looking at having on the bench if we’re serious about kicking in next year. If there were lower prem teams interested in him and guaranteeing game time we’d be silly to turn it down, but he’s not going to get any better by playing in the Championship.

All depends on the manager, in my view.

Remember that he has worked together well with Lookman previously (in the international realm) and presumably a new, progressive manager will attempt to capture that synergy.

If we bring a striker in or a midfielder who can score goals then yes a loan at a decent level works. If not he needs to stay. We can't afford for Niasse to be our only really alternative

Depends if Onyekuru and Sandro will be part of Everton's plans this summer.

Henry staying for another year at anderecht apparently.

Would sell Sandro tbh, he clearly doesn’t want to be here.

Dom is one of the few success stories of this season.  He was asked to do a job that he wasn't ready for until January. The experience he gained must be a plus point.

his finishing is his real weak point, I'd like to see him on a loan somewhere for a season lower down the league maybe. Got some good attributes - I just don't see us improving with him as a starter though

He needs regular game time, and we have less to offer now with no Europa League, so he should go on loan.

He's not a reliable enough option yet to be getting regular time at the level we're (supposedly) aiming for...32 appearances, 4 goals. I can't imagine that ratio improves with less game time.

He gets fantastic support in here for someone with a 1 in 8 record. How does his striker rate compare to previous greats like Madar, Cadermateri, Barlow or Angel? I don’t think he’d pull up trees in the championship

Which doesn’t bode well for a wannabe striker. He doesn’t seem to be a natural finisher which may be his downfall.

Because some of us can see the potential and the rate at which he's improved over the last 18 months.

How many of them games has ha actually played as a striker ...just curious because again the stats miss the story's point completely.

Madness the disrespect this lad gets.

Isn’t he our top assist maker as well?

Massively short sighted. But the ones not rating him are the usual suspects, so I guess it means fuck all really.

He just isn't at the level we need. For a striker he just doesn't score enough goals. And he doesn't have the explosive pace or trickery that will cause defences to back off and get nervous. I'm not quite sure how you can expect someone without those attributes to get game time.

And the shouts saying he needs to develop at Everton - he's 21. If he hasn't looked like making it at that age, then I think in general it's too late.

He's got a great attitude and work ethic, but he is not what Everton need at this point.
