This 6ft 2in giant would be a brilliant addition for Everton and Marco Silva must get him at all costs

Everton opinion: Toffees should sign Lukas Klostermann

While Everton under Marco Silva have struggled, the Toffees’ business in the summer window showed no indication of that. They, like Leicester City, spent smartly on the right players to reinforce the right areas and thus as a result, their current form is a shock to many.

Not only does the club look defensively weak, but they’ve managed only one win in their last seven games. Their defence has looked very shaky this season, with Newcastle United producing an incredible comeback to win 3-2.

This loss showcased many issues in the Toffees’ defensive line, with Michael Keane and Kurt Zouma struggling to make an impact, while Seamus Coleman looked out of place.

The Irishman has struggled since his return from a double leg break and the injury has taken a toll on the 29-year-old’s body. Not only does he look a lot slower, but before he got injured, Coleman had hit a rich vein of form.

Since his return, the full-back hasn’t managed to hit the same level and this has affected Everton. While Everton have been linked with PSG star Thomas Meunier (Sun), one right-back they should look back towards is RB Leipzig star Lukas Klostermann.

A German international, the Leipzig star arrived in the summer of 2014 from VFL Bochum. While his career at Leipzig started out with a few struggles, the young full-back eventually found his stride.

Since then, no one has been able to bump Klostermann from his first-team spot, with him playing in all but six games for the club this season. However, what should attract Everton and even Marco Silva to him is the fact that the 22-year-old is an attack-minded full-back.

Like former Barcelona man Lucas Digne, Klostermann likes to venture forward to help out the team. While this may pose an issue on the counter-attack, the German uses his pace and tactical intelligence to get back very quickly.

He also uses his 6’2” frame to great effect, bossing the right flank, and has the versatility to play as a centre-back as well. But what stands out most is Klostermann’s ability to win tackles without fouling the opposition.

That’s a skill any club in the world can use but for Everton, it’s a key area that they need to improve given their troubles.

Lukas Klostermann is at that stage in his career where he needs a change of scenery to help improve and a move to a tougher league will be beneficial.

Football is and always will be the beautiful game. What every child understands, yet every adult struggles to, is that it is a game that defines the nature of the universe. But that's just me.
