Everton have reportedly made an approach to sign Union Saint-Gilloise (USG) striker Victor Boniface and the Nigerian could turn out to be a surprise package at Goodison Park.
Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri reported on 16 July that the Toffees have made an approach to sign the gifted 22-year-old forward and while there is no offer on the table, the player is open to a move.
The 22-year-old Nigerian enjoyed a sensational campaign last term scoring 22 goals and registering 12 assists in all competitions for USG and his former club Bodo/Glimt, having moved to the former in August.
Taking to his Twitter account, Tavolieri wrote: “We are not yet at the stage of formal negotiations but I understand Everton took initial information on the player’s side to glimpse the possibilities of a deal for Victor Boniface.
“There is actually absolutely NO offer for the Nigerian striker on the table of USG even though the player’s open to a move. Interesting transfer to follow this summer.”
It is no secret just how much Everton are in need of attacking reinforcements this summer, with the Toffees really struggling in the final third since losing Brazilian ace Richarlison to Tottenham.
