Everton: Tom Davies eyed by Crystal Palace -Everton Transfer Rumours

Crystal Palace are monitoring Tom Davies’ situation at Everton, according to Football Insider

The lowdown

Both of Davies’ starts under Rafael Benitez have come in the Carabao Cup, with the 23-year-old restricted to a mere 16 minutes across two substitute appearances in the Premier League.

The midfielder’s £25,000-per-week contract is up in less than two years’ time and there’s apparently been ‘no progress’ towards an extension.

Davies had enjoyed something of a resurgence under Rafael Benitez’s predecessor Carlo Ancelotti. Indeed, Sky Sports journalist Alan Myers said back in March he’d ‘increased performance-wise incredibly’.

Everton fans, how many Champions League titles has Rafa Benitez won?

The latest

Everton have already lost one academy graduate to a league rival this year, as Thierry Small departed for Southampton.

Now, a Crystal Palace source has told Football Insider that Davies is ‘on their radar’ for 2022.

They’re keeping a close eye on a situation that they feel they may be able to exploit.

The verdict

The change of manager has certainly come at the wrong time for Davies, whose career may now stall.

If he was to take what would surely be a difficult decision to leave Everton – he’s a locally-born academy graduate – then how could they replace him?

Well, one option is Newcastle United’s Sean Longstaff. It’s recently been reported that the Blues are still looking to reunite with him Rafael Benitez, having first explored the possibility of a deal over the summer.

In other news, could this be the answer to Everton’s right-back problem?
