Agent delivers verdict on January future of Everton £24m attacking star
Davy Klaassen has not impressed since joining Everton from Ajax in the Summer, having failed to score in any of his 15 appearances this season.
Klaassen joined Ronald Koeman’s Everton after his sensational 20-goal season at Ajax, for a fee of £24million, after he captained his side to the Europa League final versus Manchester United.
However, since Koeman has left Goodison Park, the Netherlands intenational has had to get used to life on the sidelines, as Allardyce prefers other attacking options.
The 24-year-old’s agent, Søren Lerby, has stated in an interview with Dutch media outlet AD, that he wants to stay and earn his place, “Of course Davy is not satisfied with his role. But he wants to fight for his chance.”
Klaassen has not represented Everton in the Premier League since September.
As reported by the Liverpool Echo, Toffees’ fans are happy to know that the 16-times-capped international is to stay at Everton, as they believe more time is required to let the midfielder settle into the Premier League.
The fee that Koeman shelled out to bring Klaassen to Everton has lead to some labelling him as a ‘flop’ – but it is clear that the 24-year-old has no intention of leaving just yet.
