Former Everton defender Michael Ball has told The Transfer Tavern that he expects a lot of players to leave Goodison Park this summer.
While new manager Rafael Benitez has only just arrived at Everton, it looks like the club have already made decisions regarding some individuals.
According to The Telegraph, the Merseyside outfit could part ways with James Rodriguez, Andre Gomes, Bernard, Fabian Delph, Yerry Mina and Cenk Tosun.
Will Rodriguez leave?
Moise Kean is thought to be one player Benitez would not mind keeping around, though the Italian striker is said to be keen on returning to Paris Saint-Germain following his loan spell there last season.
As for the previously mentioned names, Rodriguez only arrived at Goodison Park last summer. However, he is someone Ball can see leaving before the transfer window slams shut.
“I feel there’ll be a lot of ins and outs,” the ex-Everton defender said. “There’s question marks over James right now. Maybe even Allan, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, even Richarlison maybe.
“Everyone’s sort of future is up in the air right now.”
It is probably fair to say that Benitez is in quite a complicated situation right now. There is a lot of uncertainty at Goodison Park, while Richarlison’s involvement at the Olympics does not make his new boss’ life any easier.
