The Everton fans in and around the Transfer Tavern are hoping that now they’ve recruited Marco Silva, a man they have desired for months, he can lead them back into European contention.
After enduring a very turbulent season under the guidance of Sam Allardyce for the majority, the Everton fans were bitterly disappointed to see how badly they wasted their money last summer on players that really failed to perform. That cannot afford to happen again this season and so our punters feel a safe investment would be in 21-year-old youth prodigy Junior Firpo, who is valued at £4.5 million on Transfermarkt.
The Real Betis fullback only made his break into the first team in 2018 but has since massively impressed as a pacey attacking left-back running up and down the wing. Firpo even scored 2 goals and created 2 more during his first-team stint and judging by the early potential he has shown, Firpo could be the ideal replacement for Leighton Baines, whose contract runs out next season.
His attacking intent suggests also that if not used as a left-back, Junior Firpo would be more than capable as playing further forward as a winger. The Dominican Republic man has all the potential to be a strong player in the Premier League but if Everton are interested in his signature, they must act quick to beat the stiff competition from Arsenal, who are also reportedly interested.
Everton know they need to improve but with the future in mind, Junior Firpo could be a good asset for the present and future, should his progression continue.
