Everton hero Joe Royle says new manager Roberto Martinez needs to buy a new striker.

Royle reckons ­Everton need somebody who guarantees goals.

He said: “We need more ammo up front if we’re to go for a Champions League place.

“Everton didn’t finish in the top four last season because they didn’t have a ­goalscorer.

“Nikica Jelavic and Victor Anichebe looked like they could be the answer at times – but neither has made the step up.”
