It is inevitable that Jay Rodriguez will be linked with a move away from Turf Moor in the January window.
The England Under 21 sriker, currently suffering from a broken nose after being hit in the face against Coventry City at the Ricoh yesterday may be wondering if it might soon become a Toffee-nose after reading the Sunday press this morning.
Media reports today suggest Premier League, Everton are preparing a bid for the striker with a figure of £5 million being mooted.
The Burnley board might find that too tempting an offer to turn down although they did make it plain in the summer transfer window that Jay Rod was not for sale having rejected a £4 million bid from Southampton.
David Moyes is thought to believe that Rodriguez is just the sort of striker that the Toffees need although it is thought they might instead go for Bristol City hotshot, Nicky Maynard should they fail in their attempt to lure Jay Rod to Goodison Park.
A report in the Sunday People also suggests Southampton have not given up hope of signing Rodriguez either. They too could be prepared to offer £5 million in the January window putting increasing pressure on the Board to prove they can keep key players and no longer need to sell.
Every player though has his price but they wont do themselves a favour in January if the Board once again sell one of our prize assets and seemingly do not use the money to bring in a high-quality replacement or two before the window closes.
I guess also it depends on how ambitious Jay Rodriguez actually is and a big factor in his decision could be where the Clarets are placed in the Championship come the festive season.
If we are still struggling at the wrong end of the table and any hopes of promotion have evaporated who can blame the lad joining a Premier League club or a Championship club currently heading up the league table?
