Everton eye shock bid for Danny Welbeck
Ronald Koeman will turn his attention to Danny Welbeck if he can't broker a deal for Olivier Giroud .
Everton's boss has Giroud fixed firmly in his sights – but the Arsenal forward wants to see if he features in Arsene Wenger's immediate plans.
However, Koeman needs a focal point to his attack since the Toffees off-loaded Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United for £75m
Although they have added Sandro Ramirez and Wayne Rooney to the ranks, the club is still seeking a striker that can act as a genuine targetman – and has the pace to stretch teams.
Welbeck would command a price tag of £30m in today's market and has links to the Merseysiders through former Old Trafford team-mate Rooney.
From the Gunners' viewpoint, it would offer them a return of almost double the £16m they paid Manchester United for the striker three years ago.
With boss Arsene Wenger adamant that Alexis Sanchez is staying put and, having recruited Alexandre Lacazette this summer, there is room for them to allow either Giroud or Welbeck to quit if the price is right.
