Everton had a rather rough January behind the scenes with numerous fan protests against Farhad Moshiri, Rafa Benitez getting the sack, Frank Lampard being appointed as his replacement along with seeing many players moving in and out of the club.
Regardless of seeing five new players sign up with the Toffees such as Dele Alli, Donny van de Beek, Anwar El Ghazi, Nathan Patterson and Vitaliy Mykolenko, one player that was connected with a transfer to Goodison Park last month that didn’t wind up joining was Dejan Kulusevski.
The winger did wind up eventually leaving Juventus last month for a relocate to fellow Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur on an 18-month loan deal with a choice to purchase if certain requirements are fulfilled.
Since getting to the north London club, the 21-year-old has made 4 looks in the Premier League for Antonio Conte’s side, scoring one goal and providing one assist, both of which came during their current 3-2 win over Manchester City.
This demonstrates how capable he is of being an attacking hazard in the league, particularly against a top side such as City and why Moshiri might now be having problems over losing out on bringing the winger to Goodison.
In addition to this, the Sweden international’s efficiencies have also highlighted the promise that the child has displayed in the early stages of his Spurs spell, with WhoScored providing him a total rating of 6.65/ 10, which is greater than the likes of Alli and Van de Beek at Everton.
