Everybody’s favourite tabloid The Sun reckons that Everton will start off their summer transfer shenanigans by getting rid of one of their strikers.
With rumours rife that Moyes is having a sniff around Darren Bent (as yes, we know Moyes poo-pooed this Tottenham-tinged transfer tale but that seems like a smokescreen), The Sun takes the next logical step and has mapped out a Goodison exit route for bald striker Andy Johnson, with four Premier League clubs apparently waiting for him:
ASTON VILLA will lead a £7million chase for Everton striker Andy Johnson.
But they face competition for AJ from Wigan, Middlesbrough and West Ham. (The Sun)
Johnson – who could have pursued a career as a sub-standard and pint-sized Beckham lookalike if he hadn’t decided to be a sub-standard Premier League striker instead, was at one point Everton’s record signing, but AJ’s goals have been few and far between, especially for a former record signing. Will the Goodison faithful be sad to see him go?
