Everton striker wanted by former club Levante

KoneThe Mirror reveal to fans in the Football Transfer Tavern that Levante are keen to resign Everton striker Arouna Kone, who spent the last year on the sidelines following a serious injury.

A move will only materialise if the player can prove his fitness to the Spanish side, as he is desperate to get playing and scoring goals again.

The Ivorian turns 31 tomorrow and he is finally fighting to become match fit in time for the January transfer window after he suffered a horrific knee ligament injury just over a year ago.

Levante are supposedly willing to offer the first team football as the pacey striker enters the closing stages of his career.

Kone followed Roberto Martinez from Wigan to Goodison Park in 2013 for £5m but frustratingly couldn’t make much as much of an impact as he would of hoped as he got injured after only five league games.

Punters in the Tavern hope he manages to come back fitter and sharper after his injury as he was so influential at Wigan, after helping them win the FA cup but sadly his 11 goals couldn’t save them from relegation.

Everton fans. Are you sad that you haven’t been able to see Arouna Kone fully flourish under Roberto Martinez at your club? Let us know your thoughts below.
