Everton will ‘set sights’ on a West Ham attacker with an uncertain future if they secure safety as a report makes a big Michail Antonio claim.

Everton have been linked with a number of West Ham players in the last few months.

But the Toffees’ interest remains strong in one West Ham man in particular it seems.

Michail Antonio has been one of West Ham’s best players in the last month or two.

So much so David Moyes has named Antonio as the man above all others who could keep the Hammers in the Premier League.

Everton will ‘set sights’ on West Ham attacker with uncertain future if they secure safety as report makes big Michail Antonio claim

The striker, who turns 34 next season, was heavily linked with a move away from West Ham in January.

The likes of Everton, Forest, Wolves and even Chelsea were said to want the powerful forward.

And speculation has been rife that he will depart West Ham in the summer while the club can still command a fee for him.

Antonio got the winner as West Ham beat AZ Alkmaar 2-1 in the first leg of their Europa Conference League semi-final this week.

Now a new report has emerged that he is at the top of Sean Dyche’s list of transfer targets.

Antonio not the only West Ham player linked with a summer move to Everton

According to talkSPORT, Everton want to sign Antonio and soon-to-be relegated forward Che Adams this summer.

“Everton have strikers Michail Antonio and Che Adams in their sights if they can pull off Premier League survival,” talkSPORT claim.

“Boss Sean Dyche is in the market for a target-man after seeing his side struggle for goals for much of the season.

“The Toffees had a bid for Antonio, whose West Ham contract is up at the end of next season, rebuffed in January. Scotland international Adams is among a host of Saints players set to leave after their relegation was all but confirmed following Monday’s defeat at drop rivals Nottingham Forest.”

Antonio is not the only West Ham player with an uncertain future who is being linked with a move to Everton this summer.

Dyche is also reportedly weighing up a move for defender Ben Johnson.
