Everton ‘consider Marko Arnautovic as they look to sign two forwards – but Ziyech transfer unlikely after Lampard axe’

EVERTON are reportedly weighing up a move to sign Marko Arnautovic.

The Austrian forward is currently playing his trade in Serie A with Bologna.

The Toffees are in need of reinforcements and have already seen one major transfer target fall by the wayside.

Arnaut Danjuma had a medical at the club and was expected to sign, only for Tottenham to swoop in and hijack the deal.

Now the Toffees have switched their attentions to the former Stoke City and West Ham star along with another forward, according to the Daily Mail.

This season the 33-year-old has been in good form in Italy, netting eight goals in 16 appearances for Bologna.

Manchester United was interested in signing the forward in the summer.

But a move failed to materialise after fan backlash to the proposed transfer.

When asked about the transfer in August, Arnautovic told a press conference: “The market is the market.

“I’ve been in the world of football for many years and I know there could be clubs interested during the transfer window.

“But now I am focused on Bologna.”

If a deal to Goodison Park comes off, Everton will be hoping he will be able to help fire them to Premier League safety.

The report also states that Chelsea’s Hakim Ziyech, on the other hand, will not be moving to the club.

Recently axed boss Frank Lampard was a fan of the Moroccan winger, but following his exit, interest is now believed to have cooled.
