SEAN DYCHE has made Wout Weghorst his main Summer transfer target, Sun Online can reveal.
The Everton boss signed the Dutch striker for Burnley and is now “desperate” to be reunited with him at Goodison Park.
And Weghorst, who won’t stay at Manchester United, is said to be keen on a move.
Our source said: “Wout would like to stay in England, is settled in the north west and has a huge amount of respect for Sean Dyche.
“He credits him for bringing him to the Premier League and is excited at the prospect of playing a part in the rebuild at Everton.”
Dyche is desperate to boost his striking options next season, not least because of the issues with injury-plagued striker Dominic Calvert Lewin.
At times last season he was forced to play Demarai Gray as a lone target man.
He is also believed to be unsure that former Brighton ace Neal Maupay is a long-term answer to the team’s goal scoring issues.
The insider added: “Dyche has made the forward line a priority and Wout is top of the list, he’s a big fan and would love to work with him again.
“He suits the style of player Dyche wants to develop, Dyche knows Wout is also a much better footballer than people give him credit for and he thinks he would be a superb addition to his squad.”

Reports last week revealed Manchester United will not make Weghorst’s stay permanent.
Erik ten Hag bought the striker in during the January window to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, who was sacked last year.
But the attacker was unable to hold down a place in the starting line-up, while his goal return was poor.
He is still contracted to Burnley and will hold talks with manager Vincent Kompany, but it appears Everton have now entered the race to sign the Dutchman.
