Kilmarnock are reportedly after former Everton and West Brom striker Victor Anichebe (Daily Record).

The club have been in talks with the 31-year-old’s representatives the report claims. The Nigerian frontman is a free agent after a spell in China and now Killie are trying to convince him to make his next destination Rugby Park.

Anichebe was an academy product at Everton, making 168 appearances for them before a move to West Brom. He has also had a spell with Sunderland, where he featured 19 times.

Anichebe could be decent for Kilmarnock

One area of the park Killie could be doing with strengthening is their striker department. They have netted six times in eight competitive fixtures so far this term.

Anichebe is a proven striker with over 200 Premier League games under his belt. He hasn’t been the most prolific striker in the world though, netting 42 goals in 267 matches.

His experience at the highest level though could help the likes of Liam Millar and Eamonn Brophy. They are two young strikers who no doubt would be eager to learn from someone with plenty of EPL experience.

At this time in the season, Kilmarnock aren’t going to get much better than Anichebe. They need something extra going forward and they’ve seemingly identified the Nigerian as the man to do that.

The ex-Toffee and Baggies man could be on the move once again.
