Everton transfer news: Update emerges on Jhon Cordoba pursuit amid Nottingham Forest links

Everton, Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace are in the hunt to secure the services of Krasnodar striker Jhon Cordoba, according to the Evening Standard.

The London-based newspaper reported on its website that he’s “One of the best strikers” available on loan in the January transfer window.

The 30-year-old is a Colombia international who has scored 11 goals and registered four assists in 20 domestic matches this season.

 

While Cordoba boasts an impressive goal tally in the Russian league, Everton should carefully weigh several factors before considering his signing.

They already have a prominent striker in Dominic Calvert-Lewin, a key player who has been integral to their attacking setup.

Additionally, the club made a substantial investment in the summer with the acquisition of striker Beto, signalling a commitment to bolstering their attacking options

Cordoba, at 30 years old, may not seamlessly adapt to the intensity and physical demands of the Premier League right away, potentially hindering his immediate impact.

Moreover, Everton’s focus should extend beyond short-term gains, considering the age factor and the need for a strategic, long-term approach in squad building.

Rather than adding another striker to an already well-stocked position, Everton might prioritise strengthening other areas of the squad for sustained success in the Premier League.
