Everton are in an unwanted tug of war with defender John Stones right now.
But Roberto Martinez will surely be more concerned about who else he is going to bring in this summer.
Various media reports today suggest that Everton are keen on a powerful, pint-sized forward.
Sky Sports reported today:
It is now thought Everton and Crystal Palace are interested in the former Bayern Munich midfielder.
Just 23 years of age he hasn’t been particularly consistent so far in his career but he can still be anything that he wants.
The Swiss international, with 46 caps and 17 goals to his name at international level, has power, precision and great finishing ability.
We all saw what he did at The World Cup with a pretty average side, and we think that Shaqiri has great potential.
He can also play anywhere across the front line and will even do a job at centre forward.
If he isn’t going to cost too much money then Everton should snap him up because this lad is a game changer.
Let’s take a look at him in action.
Everton fans: is this a player to bring additional quality to the team?
