Everton are set to launch a bid to lure Andy Carroll back to Merseyside.
The Sun are reporting that Ronald Koeman has identified the big forward as a prime target in January.
It is said that Everton are willing to splash £20 million on the England-capped striker in their pursuit to add much needed firepower up front.
Koeman brought in a whole raft of creative talents over the summer, but they have combined only to create a packed, dense and stale attacking cluster.
Romelu Lukaku would have thrived, but for Everton, who now face life without the Belgian, no such player is capable of complementing the creative agency the side boast.
Carroll would represent a great aerial threat and has a proven record of success in the Premier League, yet Koeman would be wiser to chase a striker capable of running in behind the defence.
A player who drags the opposition defence back, who has shrewd movement and can stretch a game would be the ideal man; this running would set free the enterprising nature of Everton’s midfield.
