Everton have been taking advantage of good players who don’t have any role in their current teams, but the Toffees have won a lot of referents due to this. We witnessed how they “rescued” Romelu Lukaku from being forgotten by Chelsea, and now Romelu is one of the best strikers not only in England but overseas. With this policy, Everton have made good things, and they’re reportedly interested in making a new one.
After failing to acquire the very talented midfielder Memphis Depay from Manchester United, Everton are ready to keep signing important players in order to make press on the closest team in their Premier League table. That’s why Ronald Koeman is doing everything he can to bring valuable players to the Goodison Park and make his team can be a real contender in Premier, at least to reach European competitions.
In recent days we’ve heard rumours about Everton wishing to sign a good player who is not going through his best moments currently, but despite that Koeman wants this player in his squad. We’re talking about Branislav Ivanovic, a player who still has the quality but is not seeing the amount of minutes he’d like to see in Chelsea. And now the reports are suggesting that the Chelsea defender is in line to replace Phil Jagielka, who is set to leave the club after almost ten years of service at Goodison Park.
Koeman can easily take advantage of that situation and bring Ivanovic to his squad, but there are still people who think Ivanovic can have a successful journey playing in Stamford Bridge, regardless what Antonio Conte says about the Serbian defender. Now he counts with some pretenders, such as Everton and Crystal Palace at some point of the season, so, we are going to expose three reasons why Chelsea should sell their long-serving player to Everton.
Ivanovic is not the player he used to be
Branislav used to be one of the best players in his position, but the time has passed and he is not the same we were used to see. Chelsea should take advantage of that and sell the Serbian right-back cum centre back as soon as possible if they want to gain a little bit of money from Ivanovic. Due to his current shape, and seeing the one from Chelsea starting defenders, he doesn’t have any chance to make it in the Blues.
