Everton are preparing to launch a £20m for former Liverpool forward Andy Carroll in January.
Toffee’s boss Ronald Koeman is facing some pressure after failing to find a suitable replacement for Romelu Lukaku who left for Manchester United during the summer.
The Sun claim that tension between club chairman Bill Kenwright and Koeman has become slightly brittle following inability to replace the club’s top goalscorer and so the latter is desperately tying to bring in an orthodox centre-forward.
The Merseyside club brought in Sandro Ramirez for £5.2m, per BBC Sport, but has failed to impress the Everton faithful so far.
The Sun state Carroll signed for Liverpool for £35m from Newcastle four years ago, but also performed under par s he was let go after just 18 months at Anfield.
