This Barcelona Reject Wants A Move Back To Premier League: A Good Fit For The Everton Backline?

Everton are currently in a spot of bother in the Premier League and there are questions about their survival in the top flight by the end of this season. However, it is only early stages in the competition and the Toffees are ready to turn things in their favour and fight for a revival.

The Merseyside club saw their world turn upside down since the start of the season, after what was a fruitful transfer season for them. They brought in nine new players to strengthen their side and splurged heavily in order to make it a good season for them.

However, things were far from great once the new term started with the Toffees succumbing to a series of defeats which pushed them down to the fifteenth place on the league table. There is a real danger of them getting relegated from the top tier looming large over them.

Everton are not looking to give up so easily and are readying their arsenal to take on their opponents with the hope to strengthen their position in the Premier League. Their last match was a hard-fought victory against Watford, which saw them pull things back in the final 26 minutes of the match and turn around a two-goal deficit to win the match by 3-2. They will be hoping to do more of the same in the near future and are hoping for positive outcomes.

The Merseyside club are eyeing a number of new players to be added to their side, especially the backline, which has not performed as per expectations so far this season. Having conceded 22 goals already, the defence has lacked composure and the fighting since the start of the season and is expected to be revitalised with new players, who will help to decrease its vulnerability.

One player, who has shown significant interest in joining the Toffees in the near future, is the Belgian defender Thomas Vermaelen. Currently playing for the Spanish giants Barcelona, the 31-year-old has lost a chunk of his career due to injuries and has been given clearance by the Catalan club regarding his departure from the club.

Ronald Koeman, the former manager of Everton, was a huge fan of the abilities of the Belgian ace and was really interested in adding him to his lineup. However, now that he has departed, things might not be the same at the Goodison Park for the ex-Arsenal centre back. Also, given that he is pretty vulnerable to injuries, it might not be the wisest of decisions for the Toffees to bring him in.
