Premier League pair line-up Leipzig striker

Premier League pair line-up Leipzig striker

RB Leipzig forward Yussuf Poulsen could be set for a January move to the Premier League. Reports in England claim Everton have sent scouts to keep tabs on the towering striker in recent weeks as boss Marco Silva bids to improve his attacking options.

Silva did bring in Moise Kean and Alex Iwobi in the summer, but the Everton manager is keen to sign an imposing centre-forward and Poulsen seemingly fits the bill.

The Goodison Park club have been linked with Poulsen previously and they may well decide to make their move in January.

The 25-year-olf Denmark international is in his seventh season with Leipzig and managed 19 goals in 41 appearances in all competitions last year, just one shy of top scorer Timo Werner.

Leipzig will be reluctant to allow Poulsen to depart but they may be open to offers as he will have two years left on his deal at the end of the campaign and the German club would be able to demand a premium price in the January transfer window.

It has been suggested the Bundesliga outfit would consider offers in the region of £30million for Poulsen.
Everton could well face competition for Poulsen if they opt to firm up their interest with a concrete bid as Premier League rivals Newcastle have also been mentioned as potential suitors.

The Magpies are keen to bring in a new striker in January after managing just four goals in eight games in the Premier League so far.
