Bristol City

19 goals: Everton should seriously consider getting a deal done for this player

Bobby Reid has been in top form for Bristol City this season.

Bristol City were only able to finish in 11th place with an eight-point gap from the play-offs after finishing the season poorly.

Lee Johnson’s men were in contention for a top six finish for the majority of the season thanks to Reid’s goals. They even managed to reach the League Cup semi-finals, which included a victory over Manchester United along the way, but Manchester City proved to be too difficult over two legs.

Reid didn’t miss a game all season with a total of 4043 minutes in the league. Therefore, he averaged a goal every 212 minutes or just over one every two games as well as contributing seven assists on top of that.

This means he directly contributed to nearly 40% of Bristol City’s 67 goals in the league, which shows his heavy influence on their attacking play.

His other statistics back this up because he averaged 1.9 shots per game, although that isn’t a ridiculously high shot volume for such an influential player. However, he also contributed to their all-round play in the final third because he made 1.4 dribbles and 1.2 key passes per game on average.

Therefore, he would be an excellent focal point for Everton’s attack while also having the ability to play off another striker such as Cenk Tosun or Oumar Niasse if needed. The versatility to his play makes him a well-rounded attacking threat, so teams will struggle to limit him and, therefore, he is more likely than most Championship attackers to be able to adapt to the demands of the Premier League.
