Everton are reportedly keen to sign Michail Antonio from West Ham United this summer.

According to The Guardian, West Ham attacker Michail Antonio is firmly on the Everton radar in the summer transfer window.

It is claimed that the Toffees intend to sign the 33-year-old Hammers man as a replacement for the outgoing Demarai Gray.

Antonio was actually heavily linked with a move to Everton back in the January transfer window – but that obviously failed to materialise in the end.

Hammers boss David Moyes is seemingly on the hunt for a new striker, so it certainly wouldn’t be a surprise to see the former Nottingham Forest man leave this summer…

The Guardian are claiming that the 33-year-old Hammers attacker is a key target for Everton, with Demarai Gray all set to join Fulham.

Former West Ham striker Marlon Harewood once labelled Antonio as ‘unplayable’ (Sky Sports). And on his day, he is certainly very hard to deal with.

The thing is, Antonio’s age seems to have caught up with him. He doesn’t possess the blistering speed that he once did and has definitely lost half a yard of pace over the past year or so.

He has been a great servant for West Ham over the past eight years, but now’s the time for the player and club to go their separate ways.

West Ham will demand around £10 million for Michail Antonio, and if Everton want to pay that kind of money for the 33-year-old then good luck to them.

Moyes shouldn’t even think twice about selling him this summer as far as I’m concerned.

I think Antonio’s time at the London Stadium is coming to an end.
