Many Everton fans have been left happy by the latest transfer news on James Rodriguez.
Should Everton keep Rodriguez?
Rodriguez thought that he ‘might get a chance’ in England again, amid strong interest from Istanbul Basaksehir.
The Colombia international was a key player for the Goodison Park faithful when fit last season, scoring six goals and making a further nine assists in 26 matches in total over all competitions (Transfermarkt).
With that in mind, if the player is serious about knuckling down and ‘getting a chance’ again on Merseyside, then it would no doubt be a boost to the attacking talent at Rafael Benitez’s disposal.
Nonetheless, Rodriguez will now be hoping that he can kick on and prove to the Toffees fans that a controversial last few weeks can be put firmly in the rear view mirror.

These Toffees supporters were happy as the transfer news was shared on Twitter:
“James masterclass incoming”
“Hopefully Rafa won’t cut off his nose to spite his face. His biggest objective this season is to win games and get the fans onside, and James can win him games.”
“Last season he scored 6 goals and created numerous chances so in this season’s more organised and balanced team a fit and motivated James could even more effective. At £200k-a-week we cannot afford not to find out.”
“Good. Give it your all and get into that team. Still easily the best creative player we have.”
“If he wants to prove himself and play I see no problem”
