Fans of the Premier League will know that top four dark horses Everton have now become closer to relegation dark horses after their awful start to the season. However, the Toffees’ hierarchy have dispensed with Dutch manager Ronald Koeman, and drafted in English football’s answer to Bear Grylls, Sam Allardyce.

Big Sam masterminded a 2-0 win over Huddersfield in his first game in charge, but the survival expert will know that the Merseyside club need a prolific striker if they are to get back to their best.

Having lost Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United in the summer, Everton are now reportedly turning to Watford’s Troy Deeney to solve their goal scoring problems, according to the Guardian.

The no nonsense, physical forward has only started four games for the Hornets in this campaign, although has featured ten times, mainly from the bench. With just two goals on the season, Deeney may not be the clinical finisher that Everton need, but he will at least add more of a focal point to their attacks.

Big Sam has a history of using physical target men up front, so the striker will fit that mould fairly well. It may not be the sort of football that Everton fans want to see, especially having spent over £100m in the summer, but at least they should remain in the top flight.
