Everton set to open talks to sign Andre Ayew

Everton are reportedly hoping to sign Andre Ayew on a free transfer and have lined up talks with the 33-year-old striker.

According to a report from Daily Mail, Everton are looking to sign 33-year-old Ghanaian attacker Andre Ayew on a free transfer. And the Toffees have lined up talks with the veteran striker, who has arrived in England.

The former West Ham United attacker is currently a free agent after leaving Qatari club Al Sadd, and he is on the radar of the Merseyside outfit. Everton failed to bring in a single new signing in January, and they are in desperate need of attacking reinforcements.

The 33-year-old could prove to be a useful short-term addition for Sean Dyche. And it remains to be seen whether Everton can get the deal across the line. Apparently, Ayew has flown into London to hold face-to-face talks with Everton. And the Toffees are lining up talks with the player.

The Merseyside outfit have scheduled a new round of talks. And it remains to be seen whether they can convince the Ghana international to join them. Ayew did reasonably well In the recently-concluded World Cup and could prove to be a useful addition to the Everton attack.

The Toffees have scored just 15 goals in the Premier League this season. And they will need to improve on that if they want to be to relegation. Only Wolves have netted fewer goals than Everton in the Premier League. And it remains to be seen whether Dyche can address that problem.

Everton weakened their squad further with the sale of Anthony Gordon to Newcastle United in the January transfer window. And their failure to bring in a goalscorer could prove to be a catastrophic blow for the Toffees. Meanwhile, the report adds Nottingham Forest are keen on signing the 33-year-old Ghana international as well. And it will be interesting to see if they can beat Everton and secure his signature this month.

The Toffees sold Richarlison in the summer, and they failed to replace him properly. It will be interesting to see how they cope with the departure of Gordon now. The likes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Neal Maupay have struggled to find the back of the net consistently. And that has cost Everton dearly during the first half of the Premier League season.
