Milik was agonisingly close to firing Ajax to another Eredivisie title and his hot goal scoring form has attracted attention from teams in Italy and England. With Everton expected to get a large sum for Romelu Lukaku they will have plenty of money to replace him and Milik could be the player they go for. After scoring 21 goals in 31 appearances in the Eredivisie this season, the Polish striker is wanted man and his time to make an impact on the Premier League could be coming sooner rather than later. A tall, strong, left-footed striker with brilliant finishing ability, Milik is very similar to Lukaku and could be a perfect replacement for the Belgian striker. Despite only being 22, Milik has an impressive goal scoring record for his country, netting 10 goals in 22 appearances and will be hoping to impress at Euro 2016. With the likes of Lazio, Roma and Arsenal reportedly interested, it will be a task for Everton to recruit the Ajax striker but if they do manage it, expect Milik to replace Lukaku emphatically.

The Dutch striker finished top goalscorer in the Eredivisie scoring 27 times for AZ Alkmaar and has been dubbed by many as the ‘New Ruud Van Nistelrooy’. He has also impressed on the international stage, most recently scoring for Netherlands against England at Wembley in a 2-1 win for the Oranje. At only 21 years of age, the potential for Janssen is incredible and is a very suitable replacement for Lukaku. Again, Everton will find it difficult to recruit the Alkmaar forward due to the many top clubs interested. It is believed, Ajax, PSV and Manchester United to name a few are vying for his signature.

A key factor for Everton to sign either of these players is the manager who will be replacing Roberto Martinez, with plenty of big names being discussed. The appointments of either Frank De Boer or Ronald Koeman could give Everton a better chance at signing either of these young promising strikers.
