Everton: Fans discuss former striker’s impact at the club - Everton

Many Everton fans have looked back at Nikica Jelavic’s time at the club, questioning if the striker was overrated or underrated.

Having impressed during a spell with Rangers in the Scottish Premier League, Jelavic would sign a four-year deal at Goodison Park in the January transfer window of the 2011/2012 season, costing the Merseyside club a fee of £4m.

A two-and-a-half year spell with the Toffees saw Jelavic score 13 goals in exactly 50 games in all competitions, before moving to Hull City, who were then in the Premier League.

Looking back on his time at Everton, fans shared a mixed response as they opted to engage with each other via social media whilst football took a break due to the recent pandemic.
