Ronald Koeman accepts Everton “need a striker” before the transfer deadline as well as a defender.

The Toffees boss watched his side hold Everton to a 1-1 draw last night, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Wayne Rooney spearheading his attack.

Everton have already signed  Jordan Pickford, Davy Klaassen, Henry Onyekuru, Sandro Ramirez, Michael Keane, Anton Donkor, Josh Bowler, Cuco Martina and Gylfi Sigurdsson in addition to Rooney, but Koeman still wants a couple more new recruits.

Asked if he had finished his business in the transfer window, the manager said: “I hope not.

“We are looking for a left-footed central defender, maybe a back-up for Leighton (Baines).

“That’s an option, and also a striker – even with the talent of Dominic and (Sandro) Ramirez. If we want to make the next step we need a striker as well.”
