Portuguese source O Jogo claim that Everton are looking to lure Benfica forward Oscar Cardozo to Goodison Park this summer. The Goodison Park side could well do with alternative attacking options but one wonders if they have the spending power to land the Paraguayan forward.
David Moyes saw January signing Nikica Jelavic make a seamless transition from the SPL to the Premier League but could still do with other goal-scoring options and there is no doubting that Benfica 29 year old Cardozo knows where the back of the net is.
The former Newell’s Old Boys star has netted 128 goals in 214 appearances for his Lisbon side but has seen Benfica lose their Portuguese title to FC Porto in the past two seasons so could be tempted by a move to the Premier League.
The 6f 3in forward has the physical presence to succeed in the rough and tumble of the English top tier but do the Merseyside club have the funds to land the prolific forward?
