Everton boss Roberto Martinez seems keen on pace on his flanks. He inherited a lot of it but the signing of Aiden McGeady added yet more penetration to a side which loves to threaten from out wide.
And latest reports suggest that Everton could bolster in January with a very exciting addition. The Mirror reports:
Chelsea outcast Mohamed Salah set for January loan move with Everton interested
Salah hasn’t had much of a look in at Chelsea. But with the team absolutely flying, and fellow winger and World Cup winner Andre Schurrle not even getting much game time, there is no shame in that.
Salah is something of an uncut diamond. At present, he possibly lacks the discipline to get into a top Jose Mourinho side.
But he is a wonderful player who desperately needs to stretch those legs and get some much needed experience under his belt.
If he did join Everotn this is a player who we believe Martinez would want to sign permanently at the end of the season. He’s young, fast as lightning and has that unpredictable edge that all great players possess. He’s one of these footballers who was born to entertain.
The only stumbling block could be the situation with current Chelsea loanee Christain Atsu. Reports this week suggest that:
CHELSEA are furious with the lack of first-team appearances Christian Atsu has received at Everton, and are threatening to recall him in January.
But despite the quality that Everton already have going forward, we feel that Salah would definitely get decent game time at Goodison.
Let’s see the lad in action. Everton fans: keen?
