Everton will be hoping to sneak a deal or two in before the January transfer window slams shut.

However, at present that seems wholly unlikely.

After all, the recent spat of punishments administered by the Premier League is unlikely to spur on any risks, especially with their profit and sustainability rules reportedly set to change this summer.

And yet, reports continue to emerge suggesting the Toffees remain keen on a few mid-season targets…

Who could Everton sign this January?

Everton and most of the Premier League would have to sell before they could buy, as is widely acknowledged.

Ultimately, clubs are terrified of investing money and taking chances because of the reduction of points that occurred in November and the second reported violation this week.

Teams are afraid because a precedent has been created and a statement has been made. Whether they follow through in the future or not, they are afraid.

That hasn’t stopped Kevin Thelwell from browsing the market, though; one man they keep mentioning is Frank Onyeka.

Well, Sky Sports journalist Florian Plettenberg has now revealed that there could be another who they might purchase, with the reporter writing on X: ‘Can #Uzun, two more goals for Nürnberg today! 18 y/o striker, incredible talent, key player!

‘Price tag in summer: More than €10m (£8.5m). Concrete talks with Dortmund took place. Bayern have inquired about him. He’s a target for Frankfurt. Newcastle have scouted him. He’s also on the list of Fulham, Brighton, Everton, Sevilla, Villarreal …’.

Who is Can Uzun?

Despite being a lesser-known player in European football, the Turkish U18 international obviously has a very high ceiling.

After all, there are already rumors about his starring potential in German football, despite the fact that his breakthrough has only recently happened.

With a height of 6 feet 1 inch and an obvious eye for goal, the technical and physical basis is already in place, albeit it is always expanding.

Having spent his entire youth career in Germany, and now with 21 senior appearances for FC Nurnburg under his belt, this campaign has been a supremely profitable one thus far, with the teenage sensation having scored eight goals in just 18 2.Bundesliga games whilst also posting five goal contributions in three DFP Pokal matches too, via Transfermarkt.

Sean Dyche’s versatility, which includes his ability to drop deep and function as an offensive midfielder, is what may be most interesting about him.

Given that Abdoulaye Doucoure isn’t getting any younger and has been connected to transfers away from Everton this window, it’s possible that Uzun will finally signal the timely capture of his legitimate replacement.
