The 30-year-old could be forced down the pecking order at Atletico Madrid once Diego Costa completes his move back there from Chelsea which could prompt him to seek a fresh challenge elsewhere.
The Blues will be easy tabloid fodder when the transfer speculation starts ramping up again given their known need for a striker to replace Romelu Lukaku.

Mind you, saw him play the lone striker role for Sevilla and he was shit hot and had a very good season upon moving to Atletico Madrid.

There's going to be a lot of this going around.
Realistically how many of these guys will want to play outside of the Champions League even with the rewards on offer at Everton. Not many under 30, I'd be willing to bet.

A proven goal scorer is wanted so I understand why Giroud and Costa were considered but maybe a look at players like Volland, Uth, Williams, Locadia and Werner will be the best option?

Nevertheless, looking forward to a page of ToffeeWeb moaning about ridiculous targets and Kenwright bluffing to nicely counteract all the moaning about not being ambitious enough or securing a replacement for Lukaku.
Just imagine we did get Cavani, I can already picture the scene.
"Moan Moan whinge 'over the hill', misery, misery, groan 'too slow', mope, mope 'getting PSG cast offs', gripe, gripe 'why didn't that Dutch buffoon secure services of [insert first choice 20-something strike for Champions League team here]" etc

Rather than laying out massive money on a name, why don't we work with what we have in Calvert-Lewin, who is getting better all the time. Also, Niasse has bags of energy and does seem to know where the goal is. And Sandro needs time and direction.
All three need game time; it's obvious we aren't going to win anything this season and all this chopping and changing isn't going to develop a team.

I spotted Falcao before he went to Monaco you don't suddenly stop being absolutely class.
He is a beast of a striker and, despite struggling initially, I think he would be a brilliant signing. World class.

I noticed him first a few years ago against our neighbours, I think it was the Europa League, he tore them to shreds. He was everywhere, unbelievable skill. He then came on as a sub last season and banged a hat-trick in in under 5 mins. He is one player who can take us up a level. If we get him, I promise fellow Evertonians, you will not be disappointed.
Get him signed, please, Ronnie.
