After a disappointing loan spell at Sevilla, Maxime Gonalons will have to find a new club in the summer transfer window.

During the course of the 2018/19 season, the AS Roma owned player first suffered a Fibula fracture, followed by an ankle injury in November 2018 and a tear in the abductor muscle in the final few months of the campaign.

Despite struggling with injuries for almost a year, Everton are said to be in contact over signing the 30 year old.

This is according to Monday’s edition of French newspaper L’Equipe as the Serie A club are planning to send him out on loan for the 2019/20 season.

Marco Silva’s side signed Andre Gomes from Barcelona on a temporary deal last summer and after struggling for two seasons at Camp Nou, the Portugal international impressed at Goodison Park.

For Everton, there is no risk of spending a large amount of money signing Gonalons because it would be a loan transfer. The only concern would be in regards to the player’s fitness and him staying injury free. 

West Ham are also said to be keen, and if the claims are correct it would appear Gonalons is very fortunate indeed.
