Allardyce targets striker in transfer window

LONDON: Everton manager Sam Allardyce says he is in the market for a striker in the January transfer window.The Merseyside outfit sold Romelu Lukaku over the summer and have struggled recently to score this season with their last two games ending 0-0.

Reports this week suggested the club is interested in Besiktas striker Cenk Tosun.And when asked on Friday about being linked with the 26-year-old Turkey international, Allardyce said: “Him and many others, because we need a frontman if we can find one.

“We would be actively looking for a frontman in this window because I need more goals in the side than we have at the moment if we are to just maintain our position.“As we can all see, we’ve started to struggle to create chances and score goals in recent matches, so it’s still one of the major problems we have at the club.“We’ve got more penalties than anybody else in the Premier League, which has contributed to a few points. That won’t always happen.”
