In a recent report, Fichajes mentioned that Everton are showing interest in Sevilla winger Adnan Januzaj this winter. It has been stated that the Toffees are eyeing a move to acquire the services of the Belgian wide player in the January transfer window.
Januzaj’s Impressive Loan Spell In Turkish Football
Januzaj had a fruitful loan spell at Istanbul Basaksehir last season when he put in a handful of impressive displays for them in the final third. The Belgian talent made 17 appearances for the Turkish club in the previous campaign, scoring three goals and picking up three assists in all competitions.
The 28-year-old was a consistent performer in the opponent’s half based on his average of 1.3 shots, 1.0 key passes and 2.0 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Turkish Super Lig. He was even tidy when distributing the ball after making 76.8% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).
His current deal at Sevilla will run out in the summer of 2026. Hence, the Toffees will have to launch a big offer if they want to get Januzaj on board this January.
What Will Januzaj Bring To Everton?
Januzaj is a good dribbler with the ball at his feet and can be a hard man to dispossess when he is running at full swing in the opponent’s half. He has got the eye to play a few decisive passes on the attacking third of the pitch and can even strike the ball with venom from long range.
The Belgium international is primarily a right-winger but can also function as a left-sided wide player or play in the number ten position if asked to do so.
Therefore, the Merseyside club would be wise to try everything they can to lure Januzaj back to English football this winter.
At 28, Januzaj has entered the prime stage of his career and already knows the Premier League well from his time at Manchester United. Hence, he won’t take much time to settle into Dyche’s brand of football at Goodison Park.
