This source suggests that David Moyes is considering the mother of all striker signings!
Everton are being linked with Newcastle United striker Michael Owen.
The Evening Chronicle says the team Owen supported as a boy – Everton – may well look at the situation regarding the United striker now that they have Yakubu out for the rest of the season with an Achilles tendon injury. (tribalfootball.com)
Now this could be interesting! Rafa has already pretty much ruled out a move for their former goalscoring sensation and given the paucity of goals created by the Toffees this term, Yakubu top scorer with just 4, a move for Michael Owen might make good sense. The Newcastle man still has something to offer potential suitors but even though he wouldn’t cost much, or indeed anything come the summer, his wage packet will be hefty and David Moyes would have to consider the risk of such a deal considering his well documented history of injury problems. Overall I think such a move, should the former Real Madrid man accept it, would make very good sense. Do Everton fans think the club should put in a bid for the 28 year old England man?
