Loftus-Cheek could be made available on loan by Chelsea in January, as he has failed to break into their starting line-up.
Everton and Palace are both said to be keen on the England international, and the temptation to move back to Selhurst Park would be understandable for the midfielder.
Loftus-Cheek excelled at Palace last term, and knows that he can thrive with the Eagles.
But by picking Everton he would be taking the next step in his career.
Everton are arguably the strongest side outside of the top six clubs in England this term, and Loftus-Cheek could benefit from joining them.
Marco Silva would give him all the creative licence he needs to reach the top of his game.
And Loftus-Cheek should view a move to Everton in January as his best possible option right now.
