In a recent tweet, renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano mentioned that Everton are locked in a three-way battle for Leeds United ace Crysencio Summerville. It has been stated that the Toffees could face competition in the form of Bournemouth and Burnley in the race to recruit the Dutch wide player.
Summerville’s Impressive Form In English Football
Summerville is having a decent campaign at the West Yorkshire club as he has put in a few productive performances for them in the final third. The 21-year-old has netted four goals and picked up two goals in ten matches for Leeds this season across all competitions.
The Dutch speedster has given a good account of himself by averaging 3.7 shots, 2.9 key passes and 2.4 dribbles per 90 minutes in the EFL Championship. He was even excellent when distributing possession in the final third based on his pass success rate of 82.3% in the second tier of English football (stats via whoscored).
Summerville is under contract at Elland Road until the summer of 2026. Hence, it won’t be easy for Everton to sign him when the transfer window reopens this January.
Everton Are Locked In A Three-Way Battle For Summerville: Is He Worth The Fight?
Summerville can shoot the ball with power and precision from long range and can use his pace to get the better of his marker out in the wide areas. He is a good dribbler with the ball and can create a few inviting chances for others around him on the attacking end of the pitch.
The Dutch sensation mainly plays as a right-winger but can also function as a left-sided wide player if needed.
At 21, Summerville has the potential to become a future star in English football as long as he continues to develop with each season. Hence, he will be well worth the fight, so the Merseyside club should try everything they can to lure him to Goodison Park when the transfer commences at the start of next year.
