According to the report, both clubs have agreed an initial loan arrangement with an obligation to buy for €10 million at the end of the season.
Both Marcel Brands and Carlo Ancelotti have played down specualtion that the Blues will be making moves to bring anyone in this month, but with Cenk Tosun omitted from the matchday squad against Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday and the subject himself of reports he could move on before the deadline, it could be that Everton elect to bring someone in to replace him.
Zirkzee, who had a trial with Everton a few years ago, is said to be happy with whichever of the two clubs Bayern decide to do business with this month.

I should think he'd opt to join Carlo and the club contending for Europe rather than relegation, but the appeal to play every week might swing it the other way.

If Kean's going to be sold (hopefully for £40m+) I think this lad would be a better prospect for the premier league. He's big and fast and at 19, and could vastly improve like Dom did. At 10m Euros he isn't going to cost more than the money we should be bringing in for Kenny. I really hope this one happens despite my misgivings about his goal scoring record for Bayern's B side

DCL has suffered a hamstring injury, this is a complex injury if rushed and can reoccur so there's a possibility of more time out for Dom this season.
We can't risk being at the business end of the season and knowing our luck, being without DCL and possibly Richarlison ( not that he's really set the world alight his campaign but still).
A loan signing for a centre forward is surely achievable?
11 Posted 27/01/2021 at 13:04:00
Sure he's had issues with Flick, many young players have made mistakes, and have progressed in spite of it.
We need a second striker, a loan with a option to buy looks like a shoe-in, unless Bayern think otherwise and look to Lazio.

He has stated that it is an open choice between Parma, who are offering immediate first team football, and Everton, who have "a different project" for him.
He's clearly been identified by Brands as someone for the future, and would be limited to off the bench and back up to DCL.
I imagine Kean was signed with a similar plan in mind, however Kean was clearly not happy with this.
Hopefully Zirkzee will be, and we can then sell Kean and have a bit of money to spend in the Summer. At 10million Zirkzee would be pretty risk free.

I don't know the lad but we could do with a god attacking option.
Disappointing because of the opportunities we have to achieve Europeans football.
But FFP rules etc are against us. We can't even blag more money from naming rights because we have not received final building approval for the stadium.

Thought he might be able to get a better standard but still good experience.
The trouble is if he goes (and Cenk and Bernard too) then we have absolutely nothing in reserve.

Lets see if Marcel can earn his corn.
We need this type of signing.
And at any sort of deal he looks a bargain.

Ibson, Bilic,Delph,etc., All guilty of swinging the lead. So agree with you the history of this club is a disgrace with the money waisted on these "professionals"

I commented on one of the threads this morning that Richarlison has been out of sorts since coming back from his last international break with Brazil, has there been anything in the Brazilian press regarding Richarlison.
Not sure if Tosun is on his way the Echo report that Besiktas wanted a loan deal till the end of the season with Everton paying half his salary. I wouldn't do any loan deal especially with Turkish clubs, I cant remember the player we loaned to a Turkish club with an agreed price they would pay at the end of the loan. But come the end of the loan they only offered half the fee that was agreed at the beginning. I know Bolasie has gone on loan to Middlesbrough but haven't heard if we are paying any of his salary.

It does look like Tosun is on his way out too.
I take it Bernard will stay if this does happen, but we really could do with a couple of loans coming in.

Rumours again I'm afraid! We mere mortals are not privy to the goings on behind the scenes, but I have read that Zirkzee and Bayern presumably want guarantees that he will be played regularly. Well that strikes me as being a strange one, no player is guaranteed a start unless he is a bit of a superhero, or is almost surefire to score in every game. To the best of my knowledge, no player has ever existed (even Dixie Dean had games where he didn't score) who has qualified for that.

If his application is as good, we should move heaven and earth to get him. Paired with Calvert-Lewin we would terrify other teams.

"There were numerous things that happened in the afternoon and it just wasn't meant to be. I'm disappointed, but you have to move on and we'll see what happens now. 'He was disappointed, but he was partly to blame as well. There were things I should have known before four o'clock on Friday afternoon about his problems at Everton. They were problems that we couldn't overcome. Well, we tried to, and eventually we did, but it was too late.
'I've asked him why I didn't know about those problems beforehand. He said, "Well, I told my agent", but I said, "Well why didn't the bl**** agent tell us that?"
This made me ask a few questions here, smacks of sabotage, it coincided with a huge social media fuelled charm offensive on Bolasie's part to woo Evertonians. He always come across as a nice fella but despite his efforts to work his way into the squad he wasn't fancied, it makes me question why, what did the club see that we weren't privy to? It smacked of deliberate sabotage to stay on the books cashing his cheques and keep his fitness to get his move later. If that is the case then I am so pleased to see the back of him.

If he wants to play relegation football, good luck to him.
Let's hope the German link has it wrong.

This season is so unpredictable, however, we are still in European qualification despite tour attempts to throw it away 🙏

Ellis, is at Blackpool, Moise is out and wont be back, Cenk, Bernard, will be gone. Due risk assessment says we are needing a proven striker, in the fact DCL and Richarlison, get injured.
Yes plenty of thought based on for,, but we need back up. Zirkzee, or who... Everton, need a back up striker option, as our goals scored ratio, is becoming a ration, e dry season, since Rom, left, but its the basic utility in football.
Score goals and you have a chance of winning.
Just watched Leeds, on MOTD, they look ok going forward, but if Everton play the same team as at Wolves, they can be beaten.
It seems Jordan is safe in goal but Id start with Olsen, and start the slow rebuilding of a team. Sooner than later.
Tough love, no. Common sense, but who knows.
Tom starts, and Siggy is rested and Ben Godfrey starts, in the team, his spirit and natural commitment is equal and more than the rest of the team v The Toon, bar a couple of players, who gave a genuine.
Sledgehammer few games now, and no place to be for shirkers, but effort and belief in fekkn heaps is needed, after the crap fest witnessed at GP, v The Toon.
