Everton eyeing on-loan Manchester United striker Wout Weghorst
The 30-year-old signed for the Red Devils in the previous transfer window from the Clarets on a temporary move. However, the striker is set to return to the Turf Moor side in the coming weeks.
As things stand, the Old Trafford side have no intentions of making a move for the Holland international permanent. To that end, the Goodison Park side could make a move for the forward.
Weghorst signed for Burnley last season in January when Sean Dyche was still in charge of the Clarets. However, they were unable to survive relegation.
Now, the English manager is in charge of the Toffees and led them to safety with a 1-0 win over Bournemouth in the final league game of the season. It looks like the 51-year-old wants to reunite with Weghorst.
The Holland international made a name for himself as a prolific in Germany at Wolfsburg. However, the striker’s experience in the Premier League has been underwhelming.
With Anthony Martial on the sidelines for the majority of the campaign, the 30-year-old was brought in as cover for the number nine position in January. Unfortunately, he has failed to impress.
Everton do not have an abundance of talent up front. They sold Richarlison to Tottenham Hotspur last summer. As for Dominic Calvert-Lewin, injuries have hampered his form and game time over the last two seasons.

Weghorst worked hard whenever Erik ten Hag called upon him. However, with all due respect, the 30-year-old is not up to the Old Trafford side’s standards. Thus, it remains to be seen whether the Holland international will opt to stay in the PL or will move elsewhere.
