Everton set to seal second signing when transfer window opens

Everton are set to seal their second signing of the January transfer window as they prepare to sign Swiss under 21 striker Shani Tarashaj from Grasshoppers according to the Guardian.

The 20 year old plays as a number 10 or second striker and is set to follow Bury youngster Matty Foulds in the door as Martinez once again puts his faith in young players.

Tarashaj is rated as one of Switzerlands brightest prospects and is seen as a replacement for Steven Naismith who looks set to join Norwich City.  The Swiss striker has been offered a four and a half year contract at the club.

The youngster has scored 8 times in 18 appearances this season and could be loaned back to Grasshoppers as part of the deal



Have you seen Tarashaj play?  Will he suit the football at Everton?

  1. New year new start my arse backwards Everton again buy an loan out straight away then sell a decent squad player fuckin joke Martinez

  2. Howard needs to go, He is rubbish, as does Martinez, as a manager he talks the talk, but needs to walk the walk, as far away as possible, He un-nerves me, if we are not careful, we will get relagated, why does he play Kone?

  3. It seems pretty obvious that Martinez is a baffoon of the highest order, I don’t object to young talent being sought and bought, No problem looking to the future, but right now we need to get a top class keeper, get rid of another baffoon Howard.
    We also need to expand our attacking options, and strengthen our defence, leaking goals like we do is hurtful to say the least, get rid of Kone, waste of space. Play Geri and Mirralas on both wings, and strength in both defence and attack, that’s it ” Sorted ”
    Martinez, Pleeeeze leave as soon as possibly
