Everton transfer news: Toffees keen on striker tipped to play at the top level

Diego Rossi in action for LAFC

Everton had a disappointing 2020/21 season.

The Toffees had aspirations of qualifying for Europe but they fell short in their attempts.

Everton finished 10th in the Premier League as they failed to reach their targets.

To make matters even worse, popular manager Carlo Ancelotti has recently departed for Real Madrid.

Despite there being no manager at Everton at the moment, the club will still be looking at players to sign in the summer.

It is believed they are interested in a promising striker who plies his trade outside of Europe.

The Telegraph are reporting that Everton are keen on signing LAFC striker, Diego Rossi.

How has Rossi performed for LAFC?

The 23-year-old won multiples awards in 2020 including the Golden Boot, Young Player of the Year award and was named in the MLS Best XI.

What has been said about him?

Rossi has made a great impression in MLS and he's been tipped to play at the highest level in Europe.

“As a talent evaluator, if the indirect question is, ‘Is Diego good enough to play at the top level in Europe?’ My answer to that is absolutely,” LAFC general manager John Thorrington said of Rossi, per LA Times.
