Toffees to bid for a much needed goal threat.
Everton tickets available from Tixdaq.com
Everton have emerged as the strong favourites to clinch the £2.5m signature of Hapoel Tel Aviv striker Itay Shechter.
Shechter has been attracting interest from a number of clubs across Europe with West Ham also keen on making a move for the prolific forward when the transfer window re-opens in January.
But reports in Israel suggest that Everton are the most likely to secure a deal for the 23-year-old forward who has been earning rave reviews in Israel.
David Moyes is keen to bolster his forward line in January and give some much needed competition to Yakubu and Tim Cahill.
Shechter was among the goals once again for Hapoel Tel Aviv in their recent Champions League game against Schalke and is keen to show he can compete at the highest level. (talkSPORT)
Everton have scored few goals with their strikers this season, with the likes of Tim Cahill and Mikel Arteta weighing in with their share.
Although Yakubu scored the winner against Stoke at the end of October, and Jermaine Beckford equalised against Bolton last night, these are the only goals this season scored by recognised strikers.
With Louis Saha and Victor Anichebe struggling for fitness, one can understand David Moyes’ desire for a forward.
Shechter has scored 36 goals in 68 appearances for Hapoel, and with Champions League experience and international caps, he has proven himself at the top level.
