According to an in-depth report by journalist Patrick Boyland of the Athletic, Everton midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin is ‘desperate‘ to get back and prove his worth for the Toffees after 18 months on the sidelines – with supporters reacting to this claim as he looks set to finally return some time in the next month.
Carlo Ancelotti provided the latest update on Gbamin in a press conference on Friday, with the Everton boss confirming that Gbamin will start first-team training sometime in the next ’10-15 days’ (Liverpool Echo).
Boyland, following on from that update, has provided a behind the scenes glimpse into his recovery and how football’s postponement due to coronavirus last year delayed his long-awaited comeback (The Athletic).
The journalist also claimed that Gbamin is ‘desperate’ to get back to the first team and prove his worth as a Toffees player – nearly two years after signing for £25 million from Mainz in the summer of 2019 (BBC).
Flocking to this claim, plenty of Toffees had their say on Gbamin – with one claiming he can be ‘like a new signing’ when he returns whilst others dropped their wide array of verdicts.

Everton fans flock to Gbamin claim
“Enjoyed this update re: Gbamin. Demystifying what’s happening behind the scenes of his rehab reminds you that the guy is a real life human being and not simply a tragic meme. Really hope he comes good.”
“Glad this has been written Paddy, I watched a lot of German football and he’s a class act. Just hope Blues give him all support he needs. It’s a credit to him he keeps going”
“Be like a new signing. Full of hope for this lad.”
“Insane, the lad’s still only 25”
“I’ve seen him play for Mainz and he is a monster defensively. I’sd also say he’s as quick as Godfrey.
We get him right and it will free up Allan to move forward more and play his natural game”
“Can’t wait to see him play! Sort of hope they ease him back by playing him at u23 level until next season!”
“18 months wow”
“We’re gonna have an actual DM”
