It’s safe to say that Marco Silva hasn’t really made the most of his resources in the current campaign as his team selection continues to raise eyebrows. Indeed, leaving Richarlison on the substitutes’ bench is something that’s starting to get on the nerves of supporters.
The Merseyside club will inevitably already have one eye on the summer transfer window after struggling for consistency for large parts of the current campaign.
Interestingly, Lyon president Jean Michel Aulas told Telefoot this week that the French side could be forced to sell Fekir in the summer with one of he or Houssem Aouar expected to leave the Stade OL.
Indeed, the France international has established himself as one of the hottest topics in Europe in recent years and it’s safe to say that he has all the ingredients to become a superstar. He could produce plenty of fireworks in the Premier League and he still has his best years ahead of him, so the sky is the limit.
Fekir has produced 12 goals and seven assists in the current campaign and he’s not even hit top form, so that just goes to show how special he really is. His explosive power on the ball and incredible finishing ability could help cure the Toffees’ attacking woes and he has the vision to improve Everton’s productivity in the final third.
Bringing him to Goodison Park would be a complete shock as he’s been linked with Real Madrid, Spurs and Liverpool already this year. The fact that the Toffees are currently struggling in the race for a European spot adds to the shock, as it would take a miracle to persuade him to join a club who could fail to secure a place in Europe. Marcel Brands could pull off an unbelievable piece of business with his value at £63 million (by Transfermarkt) as well.
Everton fans, do you think you could lure Fekir to Merseyside? Surely it’s going to be near enough impossible in the summer…
