Everton Might Lose Their Dutch Ace: 3 Players Including This Newcastle Outcast They Should Scout

Davy Klaassen has failed to live up to expectations at Everton and might be all set to leave the club when the transfer window opens next month. According to recent reports, the Dutch midfielder is being linked with Turkish Super League giants Fenerbahce as they look to step up their interest in the player. Klaassen signed for the Toffees in a deal worth £24m in the summer but has failed to cope up with the pressures of playing in the Premier League which has led to reports linking him with a January move out of Merseyside.

The Dutch international has just made 13 appearances for Everton in all competitions and is yet to score his first goal for the club this season. His long-term future is in doubt now, as new Everton boss Sam Allardyce looks to clear out his squad ahead of a potentially busy transfer window for the Merseysiders.

Let’s take a look at three options who can replace Davy Klaassen in the Everton midfield.

Jonjo Shelvey

The former Liverpool midfielder is currently finding chances limited at Tyneside after Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez decided to drop him in their latest match against Leicester City. The English midfielder has made 13 appearances for the Magpies this season but has found life tough in Tyneside as he is yet to score his first goal of the campaign.

However, he has the potential to change any match and can score from the midfield as evidenced by his record at Liverpool and Swansea, which makes him an ideal option to replace Klaassen at Goodison Park.

Luis Alberto

The Spanish midfielder has been in sensational form for Lazio in the Serie A. He has already scored 5 goals and made 8 assists in 21 appearances for Lazio in all competitions. Alberto has experienced football in the Premier League before with Everton’s arch-rivals Liverpool and might still have a point to prove to his previous employers. He can turn out to be a great asset for Sam Allardyce’s men as they look to look to secure a top 7 finish this season.

Wahbi Khazri

The on-loan Sunderland midfielder is lighting up the Ligue 1 in France with his dazzling performances from the midfield for Stade Rennais FC. He has already scored 6 goals in 15 appearances for his current club and with his parent club Sunderland struggling in the Championship, a move to the Premier League might suit him. Khazri might be a gamble but it is worth risking for Sam Allardyce.
