Everton should try to keep Vlasic after impressive loan despite agent’s comments

Nikola Vlasic has had a strong loan spell at CSKA Moscow and his agent said he’s settled there, but he could have a future at Everton.

The agent of Everton winger Nikola Vlasic, who has spent the season out on loan at CSKA Moscow, has said that the player’s preference is to stay there, according to Championat, as relayed by the Liverpool Echo.

Vlasic struggled for opportunity at Goodison Park but has found his feet this term, scoring eight goals and racking up five assists (Transfermarkt) in all competitions.

He scored one and made one as the Russians did the double of Real Madrid in this season’s Champions League and perhaps the chance to play European football is behind the comments.

Agent Tonchi Martic said: “At the moment, everything is possible with regards to future of Vlasic. Nikola really wants to stay at CSKA but the club must reach an agreement with Everton first.

 

“So far, there is no agreement, but talks are ongoing between the two parties. Nikola likes the club and the coach so we will see.”

Many Everton fans may not see the benefit of trying to change the mind of a winger who never pulled up any trees for their club and wants to leave.

But he has shown what he can do, given a run in the team, and is the kind of young, versatile creative midfielder Everton need if they are to fully implement Marco Silva’s gameplan.

The likes of Bernard and Gylfi Sigurdsson should remain ahead of him in the pecking order but given that Vlasic has shown his quality on the Champions League, it’s worth Everton giving him a chance to show what he can do in a squad that can still be light on natural width, especially on the left.

There won’t be many who mourn the loss of Vlasic if he does get his wish but Everton aren’t in that strong a position that promising, creative midfielders who are already on their books can just be discarded with abandon.
