How Everton manager Gary Thelwell may sign Dyche’s Roberto Firmino in January

Everton’s financial blunders in recent years have come to the forefront this season, with Sean Dyche and his players now forced to face the transgressions of the club’s past.

 

Rafa Benitez was arguably the first to be hamstrung, with his operations in the market massively hindered. However, his tactics hardly helped, and he was eventually dismissed.
Next came Frank Lampard, who could only spend following the sale of Richarlison. He too failed to inspire his side, and the Chelsea legend too was sent to the chopping block.
Seeking to face the challenge head on, their current 52-year-old boss finally feels like an ample leader for the Toffees, well aware of the hindrances he faces.
However, Kevin Thelwell is seemingly doing everything he can to help make his life easier, with this January promising to be an interesting one for the Merseyside outfit.

Having shared an interest in Maximilian Beier back in September, perhaps they could seek to reignite that potential swoop, capitalising on the reported €30m (£25m) release clause inserted into his new contract.
After all, bringing a creative forward from Hoffenheim to Merseyside would draw immense parallels with their rivals’ 2015 acquisition of Roberto Firmino, which certainly proved profitable.

How good was Roberto Firmino for Liverpool?

At his peak, the Brazilian maestro was widely regarded as the key cog in Liverpool’s electric front line. If Firmino faltered, so too would Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
As such, he became imperative for Jurgen Klopp, typifying his revolutionary system by dropping deep to link play whilst also spearheading the press.
Although he departed in the summer, the 32-year-old did so having amassed 362 games for the Reds, scoring 111 and assisting 79.
Without him, it is unlikely that they would have enjoyed the huge success in winning both the Premier League and the Champions League among other honours.

Although Beier is not quite an exact profile, Football Transfers have sought to make the comparison.
Especially given his ability to feature on the wing, showcasing his technical quality that only adds to his apparent proficiency.
Despite being just 21 years old, already he has six goals and four assists in 13 Bundesliga appearances this season.
It should therefore come as no surprise to see it suggested that he has ‘the genes to score goals’ by his head coach Pellegrino Matarazzo.
Should Everton manage to push this deal through, ahead of their bitter Merseyside rivals, the hope is that Beier could emulate the legacy left by Firmino under Dyche in royal blue.
