Toffees linked with summer Augustin swoop
RB Leipzig striker Jean-Kevin Augustin is top of Everton's wish-list for the summer transfer window, according to reports in Italy.
The Toffees are looking to recruit more firepower at the end of what has been, to date, a disappointing campaign for the Merseysiders.
Manager Marco Silva has failed to have much of an impact and just 39 goals scored from 29 Premier League games illustrates where his deficiencies lie.
Augustin has made 15 Bundesliga appearances for Die Bullen this season, scoring three goals in the process, but seems to have done enough to make those at Goodison Park stand up and take notice.
Calciomercato are reporting that Silva has put the France Under-21 ace near the top of his transfer targets for the off-season after the player was heavily linked with Everton during the winter window.
Having come through the Paris Saint-Germain youth ranks, the 21-year-old is highly-rated in Germany but it may be that he plies his trade in the Premier League if Silva gets his way over the summer.
