Everton attacking midfielder Nikola Vlasic has suggested to Sportske novosti that he does not think that he has a future at the club.

Vlasic joined CSKA Moscow on a season-long loan deal from Everton in the summer of 2017.

 

The 21-year-old attacking midfielder’s current contract with the Toffees runs until the summer of 2022, according to Transfermarkt.com.

Vlasic told Sportske novosti, as translated by Royal Blue Mersey, when asked if Everton will count on him next season: “Honestly, I do not believe.”

No future at Everton?

Everton manager Marco Silva has suggested to The Liverpool Echo that Vlasic could be part of his plan in the future.

While one can understand how hard it is going to be for the youngster to break into the Everton first team next season, he should not give up just yet.

If the Croatia international does well during his loan spell in Russia, then he could convince Everton manager Silva to give him a chance next season.

Vlasic joined Everton from Hajduk Split in the summer of 2017 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £10 million and when Ronald Koeman was in charge of the Toffees.
