Everton boss David Moyes has hinted he is ready to replace his misfiring duo of Yakubu Aiyegbeni and Louis Saha with Emmanuel Adebayor and Nicklas Bendtner in the January transfer window.
Moyes has expressed his displeasure with the performance of his strikers who have been goal-shy since the season began. Tim Cahill is the Toffees‘ top scorer with eight goals, but he will soon be unavailable on Asian Cup duty for Australia.
“I think if any of them became available towards us we’d look,” Moyes told Liverpool Echo.
“But in this window there will not be enough to pick and choose.
“You might have to take what you can if you need something.
“I would like to add two or three but they will be loan players. We have a few people in mind so we will see how it goes.
“Positional wise we could do with a centre-forward and we have been short of a wide right for most of the season so I could do with those two positions.”
Yakubu, Saha and Jermaine Beckford have just three Premier League goals among them this season and this has caused Moyes to worry if they are worth staying at the Goodison Park longer than necessary.
Yakubu was rumoured to be a target for West Ham and Sunderland in the summer but Moyes held on to the huge forward, trusting he would rediscover his scoring form after recovering from injury.
