Tom Davies comments on becoming Everton's very own Andres Iniesta

The teenager wants to become a regular at Everton under Ronald Koeman.

Everton midfielder Tom Davies has been speaking about his desire to play first-team football at the club, and become an Andres Iniesta or Sergio Busquets type player for the team.

Davies is one of the more impressive young players at Goodison Park and made his debut for the club last season.

He is hopeful of breaking into the first-team at Everton under the management of Ronaldo Koeman and told the Daily Mail that he would love to control a game the way his Barca idols do for his beloved Everton:

“He's (Koeman) been really good since he's come in. He's helped me a lot on aspects I need to work on in my game, things like my first touch, just having control of the ball.

“I like certain players and I pick up things from watching them.

“I love watching Barcelona, they're the best team around. Players like Andres Iniesta and Sergio Busquets, I really enjoy watching them and seeing how calm and composed they are. The way they can control a game, that's something I'd love to be able to do one day.”

Davies is certainly a player that fits the bill regarding the playing style of Koeman.

He likes to control the game and is capable of doing so in time. He has bundles of energy and is happy to press off the ball – he is certainly a player in the Koeman mould.

The Dutchman has so far been reluctant to use him in the Everton first-team but the 18-year-old is clearly a talent that the Toffees boss will be keeping his eye on for the future at Goodison Park.

If he can become the club’s very own Iniesta, then Everton have themselves a real talent on their hands.
