Barcelona’s Munir El Haddadi has proven he can handle La Liga at Alaves and Valencia despite being so young. He could be everything Everton fans want.
It’s no secret that Everton fans aren’t happy with the direction their club is heading in and it’s no wonder, considering what they’re being given.
The squad is a series of ageing talents like Wayne Rooney, Phil Jagielka, and Ashley Williams mixed with players who simply don’t have the experience at the top to do what the fans crave – be it signings like Michael Keane & Jordan Pickford or talents like Tom Davies and Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
So it’s no wonder that a manager who lowers expectations like Sam Allardyce has managed to get things working his way; and if things are to change, the right players will be needed along with the right coach.
One player who would surely fit the bill perfectly would be Munir El Haddadi, on loan at Deportivo Alaves from Barcelona.
The 22-year-old has scored 13 goals this season, progressing from the seven he managed last, and he looks like the exact kind of attacking talent who could help bring things together at Goodison Park.
Young and technically gifted, with the experience of winning trophies with Barcelona and leading the line for a top-half La Liga side – Munir has what it takes to be everything the Toffees hoped Gerard Deulofeu would be.
And with Barcelona reportedly needing to clear out room to make way for Antoine Griezmann, this is the ideal time to strike.
