Fenerbahce back in for frozen out Everton midfielder

New, comments

Like several others, the Dutchman has found himself out in the cold.

Everton midfielder Davy Klaassen has not been in the club’s match day squad for a Premier League game since October 22nd. He has not made an appearance in the Premier League since September 23rd, and his most recent minutes in any form were during the dead rubber Europa League match on December 7th.

It’s a cruel cycle. On the one hand, the Blues have struggled most of the season. On the other, Klaassen needs time to find his footing in English football. The two factors mix like oil and water, and as such, the Dutchman simply isn’t playing, for the perception that assimilating new talent is something that Everton cannot afford to do.

Klaassen still has talent, of course, and so it’s no surprise that clubs would be interested in acquiring his services. The latest report is from Turkish Futbol, who state that Super Lig giants Fenerbahce are chasing a loan deal that would include a buy option.

Fenerbahce have ramped up efforts to sign Everton midfielder Davy Klaassen on a loan move until the end of the season.

A source close to the Yellow Canaries revealed to Turkish-Football that Klaassen is on their radar and efforts have been made to sign the midfielder.

Fenerbahce want a loan deal with a buy-out clause option.

It would be a shame for Everton to give up on one of their big money signings from this past summer so soon. Klaassen was one of the most dynamic midfielders in the Eredivisie, and a staple for the Dutch national team. He is still just 24.

A loan could be the best idea for all parties involved, but hopefully Everton could negotiate the buy option out of it.

Alternatively, given the injury to James McCarthy and the seeming abandonment of Tom Davies, perhaps Sam Allardyce would find it in his heart to restore Klaassen to the squad. After all, Everton have recently been linked to similar types of midfielders - Joao Mario comes to mind - when they have one on their books already.
