Friday’s Toffee Bites: Justin Kluivert would be a good fit at Everton

Of all of the Everton-related transfer rumours that have come out prior to the summer, this Justin Kluivert talk is some of the most logical. He’s a talented youngster that wants to make a move to a bigger league. However, he would probably end up on limited minutes for one of England’s top clubs.

Everton, on the other hand, has shown a desire to play young players, give them a chance to develop and allow them to move on if they feel they have outgrown Merseyside.

Kluivert is said to have plenty of suitors, and why wouldn’t he? He already has name recognition thanks to his father and he has been a steady player in his own right. It’s possible he is drawn to the bright lights in Manchester or elsewhere in Europe. For the good of his career, Goodison Park could be his best choice.

Plus it appears his agent Mino Raiola has had a falling out with Manchester United (possibly over the Paul Pogba & Romelu Lukaku deals?) which then puts the youngster in Everton’s sights.
