Marco Silva knows all about the 25-year-old from his spell at Watford and, like Richarlison before him, there have been pleny of media suggestions that he could follow the Portuguese and the Brazilian to Goodison Park.
Doucoure agreed a new five-year contract at Vicarage Road in August no doubt designed to ward off any interest from Everton in the player but as the January window approaches, it's a link that's unlikely to go away no matter how ill-founded.

Many say we need a striker, and I was wondering if we should make a £60/70 million bid for Rashford? The lad is a talent, is clearly unsettled, and what a message it would send.
Anyway, winter is coming, so the press rumour mill will start reaching full throttle soon.

Forget Doucoure and get Gomes signed permanently.

Spot on, I too would love Rashford, I really think he could become a great with us and he would thrive off quality ball. Hes not far off things clicking so Id love a big January bid for him.

If there are to be any expensive signings then I really do think that Usmanov is on board...
We shall see

Outside of Richarlison (and he isnt really a genuine centre forward yet) what are the options?
I still get concerned thinking that without Richarlisons and Siggys goals we would start looking a bit blunt again.

We are moving in the right direction but it's still very early days before we can think of getting ManUtd, Man City and Chelsea's best players.
I'd love to get Ramsey from Arsenal but I think the Premier League clubs above us would be in for him but if he's not wanted by Arsenal then we may be in with a more realistic chance than trying to get a player still wanted by his club.

Adam Reach of Sheffield Wednesday would be ideal.

Much better to sign Gomes or find his like for like in the market – not easy – because he has clearly radically enhanced our midfield.
And it would be nice to hear rumours of strikers we are chasing because we have a lot of midfielders in the squad right now, some of them probably worth moving on.

Good shout for Callum Wilson though... but I can't see Bournemouth letting him go.

A bit late to the party on this thread... but just checked out Adam Reach on YouTube and Wikipedia. He's 25 and last year he scored 4 goals in 53 appearances for a Championship side. Not convinced that meets your criteria of an eye for goal.
In any case, Richarlison should be our long-term left winger, especially if as you say we sign another striker. I wouldn't get hung up that he's not left footed... he's got pace and an eye for goal.

Incidentally, this writer thinks Gana is the most underrated player in the EPL: https://dailytimes.com.pk/334649/idrissa-gueye-the-most-underrated-player-in-epl/
