Everton are eyeing a January window move for Sheffield Wednesday's teenage striker George Hirst. 

The Blues want to bolster their u-23 squad with up to four new signings this month.

And 17-year-old Sheffield Wednesday forward Hirst - the son of former Wednesday striker David - has emerged as target.

Hirst made his senior debut earlier this season as a substitute in their League Cup game against Cambridge United.

The England under-18 international signed his first professional contract with the Championship outfit last year which sees him tied to the club until 2018.

Hirst, 6’3”, has been identified by u-23s boss David Unsworth as another striker with the potential to break into Everton’s first-team after summer signing Dominic Calvert-Lewin, signed from Sheffield United, join in a £1.5m deal.

The Blues are planning a significant shake-up of their squad this month with new arrivals, sales and loan deals all in the pipeline for the Premier League 2 leaders.

As of last month, the teenage striker had scored 22 goals in 30 matches for Wednesday’s youth sides.

Hirst came off the bench against Reading last month to make his Football League bow.

They've just bought Lookman for £10m from a badly run L1 club. It'll take the same and some more to prize young Hirst from an ambitious Championship club.

This will be as big a test as any to show how serious the Chairman and CC are about this great club of ours, not whether we sign someone for £10million or not.

Not so far off a sideways move for George. If they are Offering Peanuts it must be a monkey they are after. BIG NO !

Typical of Alan Biggs to stir the pot on this one.He's just a closet blade who loves to s.h.i.t stir as far as Wednesday are concerned. If George Hirst is to make it, it won't be by joining Everton, it will be by staying at Wednesday and progessing into the first team from this coming summer onwards. A nothing story, which will no doubt generate 20 pages on Owlstalk.

Go away Everton. 

 

Slightly worrying given their recent moves for Lookman and Calvert-Lewin - Hirst is a player in a very similar mould.

No chance.  Not now. Fortunately DC has a wedge to stave off the vultures now.  

Couple of years back he'd have gone.  Not now.  Thank goodness .
