Some Everton fans happy as Robin Olsen set for loan extension
Some Everton fans were feeling happy after a report emerged over a potential loan extension for Robin Olsen.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, Roma’s general director Tiago Pinto has begun discussions with the outfit over extending the ace’s loan into next season. Sport Witness have claimed the move could help boost the value of the ‘keeper, who is contracted to the Serie A outfit until 2023.
Olsen enjoyed a fairly successful spell at Goodison Park, making 11 appearances across all competitions, even displacing Jordan Pickford on some occasions.
Carlo Ancelotti spoke of the player in glowing terms, claiming way back in December 2020 that Everton want to make his move to Merseyside a permanent one.
Olsen’s Everton loan extension would relieve headaches
A loan extension at Everton for Olsen would relieve so many headaches for Ancelotti going into both this summer’s window and next season.
Roma’s stance on the Sweden international allows the Italian to focus on strengthening other areas of the pitch and not spend ages looking for a suitable number two.
It also alliveates any fear over who could replace Pickford for next season should he suffer an injury during Euro 2020 or before the start of the campaign.
Here are how fans reacted to the news…
No brainer tho I would like him here permanently tbh— DJSPARKY (@samcooper24896) May 25, 2021
Sounds perfect all round— Goodison Alex (@GoodisonAlex) May 25, 2021
I actually don’t understand those who think he’s a bad keeper (certainly good enough for back up)— Michael Hilditch (@MichaelHilditc5) May 25, 2021
Can't believe there are actually people saying no. Was solid for us and clearly boosted Pickford's play from January on.— Quin Welch (@QuinWelch) May 25, 2021
If you got him on another loan— Danny (@Danny_EFC6) May 25, 2021
It’s straight away one of our positions filled that’s needed and cost effective https://t.co/10j0xe5SZI
