Ramiro Funes Mori has not really made a huge impact for Everton since his move from River Plate in the summer of 2015 for a transfer fee reported by the club’s official Twitter account to be worth £9.5 million, but it is time for manager Sam Allardyce to throw him into action.
The 26-year-old central defender has not been able to establish himself in the Everton first team since his switch, but Allardyce cannot do any worse than bringing him into the fold now, given the suspension of defender Ashley Williams, who has not been in good form so far this season anyway.
The centre-back has yet to make an appearance in the first team for Everton this season, but the 26-year-old has already been called up by Argentina for upcoming international matches against Italy and Spain, which underlines just how highly he is rated by Jorge Sampaoli.
Mori has been on the sidelines since March 2017, but now that he is fully fit and played for the Toffees’ Under-23 side this week, Allardyce should seriously consider recalling him and utilising him in the final months of the season.
Mori would be determined to play well and prove that he can still be a key player for the Toffees, and manager Allardyce should tap into this.
