Former Burnley defender, Michael Keane was highly regarded as one of the future prospect in England at Burnley. But when he arrived at Everton for a fee reported to be £30million last summer, the Everton fans have been filled with joy of excitement as the defender will be a long-term player for the Merseysiders.
But, upon arriving and starring in 25 matches for the club, the 25-year-old has been founded with many faults and some of his poor performances has caused quite a stir in the Everton fans, which led to rumours via the Daily Mirror that the club could offload the summer signing as soon as the summer transfer window comes up.
The former Burnley defender has been given the chance to step up his game, as he was given the first regular ahead of the aged Ashley Williams and Phil Jagielka. Keane’s first performances were outstanding for the Toffees in the first five games for the club, but hit low in form, it might be best if the club offload him in the summer to free up some wages for the club.
Everton have not been in their best performance as they seem to be struggling in the Premier League after the sacking of Ronald Koeman, with caretaker manager David Unsworth for a short period. The club appointed Sam Allardyce to take charge, who has been very fruitful for the club this season, the Toffees so far this season, with 27 games played, have won 9 matches drawn 7 and lost 11 games, which sees them sits at the ninth position in the Premier League, after being kicked out in the Europa League group stage.
Everton has only managed to score 14 goals in their last 6 games in the English top Flight, which is not very helpful goals to score if they are looking to surpass the top half of the table, unless their defensive foes has been done away with, and Keane has proved that he is a defender trying to improve in the league.
