Everton fans have been left bemused and angry after Ronald Koeman suggested that he intends to use Nikola Vlasic more centrally in the future.

Very little was known about Vlasic, when Everton signed him from Hajduk Split last summer.

However, the Croatian has arguably been the best addition that the Toffees made in the previous transfer window.

Vlasic has impressed during every one of his outings in Everton’s first-team to date, and his display against Brighton & Hove Albion earned him masses of credit.

Vlasic was stationed out wide for the match against Brighton, which Everton drew 1-1.

And after the game, Koeman suggested that his plan was to move Vlasic into a more central role, much to Everton fans’ annoyance.

Everton already have a whole host of attacking midfielders vying for the number 10 spot in their team, and if Vlasic is also used in that position, then Koeman will have a significant selection dilemma in the future.

Koeman’s comments just serve to heap further pressure on to him, at a time when the Goodison Park crowd are already becoming disillusioned with his management of their side.
