Everton boss Marco Silva is not bothered about Everton’s ability to score more goals and the need to secure more strikers.

January transfer window is a few days away and Silva is tired of being told to buy a striker to take the place of Romelu Lukaku.

Ronald Koeman lost his job over a year ago and was succeeded by Sam Allardyce who brought in Cenk Tosun last January. However, the Turkey international has not thoroughly impressed as the club wanted and is being used sparingly ever since.

“I understand the reasons why I keep getting asked about buying a striker,” Silva said, according to the Guardian.

“But what I can tell you is that Richarlison has scored nine goals. That is not a bad number considering he was banned for a couple of matches and has not played every game up front.

“It would be ideal to have someone scoring a goal in every game but that is not easy. When you look at the list of the best strikers in the Premier League this season Richarlison is not far from the top. To have someone scoring more would be fantastic but we have to be fair to the players we have.

“It is not just in that position we can improve either. It is not right to be always talking about the same position in the squad. You can improve everywhere. Even the best team in the world can improve.”
