In a recent report, Sky Sports mentioned that Everton are hoping to sign Southampton winger Kamaldeen Sulemana this summer. It has been stated that the Toffees are eager to snap the Ghanaian wide player in this ongoing transfer window.
Sulemana’s Tough Season At St. Mary’s Stadium
Sulemana had a difficult season at Southampton after joining from Rennes in January. The 21-year-old made 18 appearances for the Saints in the previous campaign, scoring two goals and earning one assist in all competitions. However, his contributions were not enough for Southampton to avoid relegation from the Premier League.
The Techiman-born talent was a consistent performer in the final third as he averaged 1.3 shots, 0.8 key passes and 2.0 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Premier League. He even distributed the ball relatively well in the opponent’s half based on his pass completion rate of 76.2% in Premier League football (stats via whoscored).
His current contract at Southampton will expire in the summer of 2027. Thus, it won’t be easy for the Toffees to land him on the cheap.
Should Everton Boss Sean Dyche Snap Sulemana Up This Summer?
Sulemana is a decent dribbler with the ball at his feet and can make a few dangerous runs with the ball out on the flanks. He has got the eye to play a few killer passes in the final third and can shoot the ball with power and accuracy from long range.
Sulemana is primarily a left-sided wide player but can also function as a right-winger or as a centre-forward if asked to do so by his manager. However, the Ghana international has to find a way to improve his productivity in front of the opponent’s goal.
We can expect Sulemana to bring more firepower to Everton boss Sean Dyche‘s attack. He might even help the Toffees avoid getting into a relegation dogfight in the Premier League next season. The Ghana talent knows the Premier League well by now and won’t take any time to settle into life in England.
At 21, Sulemana will only get better in the coming years. Hence, it makes sense for the Merseyside club to go all out to snap the Southampton prospect up before the end of this transfer window.
