Poor Davy Klaassen is having a nightmare first season at Everton.
Signed with big hopes by Ronald Koeman, the former Ajax player simply hasn’t been able to show his worth.
The club’s early season struggles played a part in that, and also Everton signing too many players for a similar position, but Klaassen hasn’t exactly shone when given opportunities and Sam Allardyce doesn’t seem too keen just yet.
With suggestions Klaassen could be pushed out by Everton, De Telegraaf spoke to the player’s agent to get some inside information.
Sören Lerby told the Dutch newspaper he’d not heard anything from Everton about that, and added: “Of course Davy is not satisfied with his role, but he wants to keep fighting for his chance.”
De Telegraaf don’t seem too convinced, explaining that Koeman was the player’s backer and since the Dutch manager left, Klaassen has been out in the cold.
What may give Klaassen more chances at Everton is the price the club paid, and the lack of clubs coming forward who’ll pay anything similar for the 24 year old.
