Marco Silva has emphasized an attacking style of football since his arrival at Everton and the latest reports are that he’s in the market for another playmaker.
According to the Daily Mail, the former Hull manager has his eye on bringing Samir Nasri to Goodison Park.
The Frenchman will be a free agent after his drugs ban expires, and is free to train with clubs from next month.
The report claims that the Toffees will be at the front of the queue to try to land the two-time Premier League winner in order to bolster their attacking options.
Obviously Nasri has good experience, but the move just would not make sense. Of course, he will have served his time, but the Frenchman would bring controversy that the club doesn’t really need.
But moreso, from a tactical point of view, Nasri would not be a good fit. Silva has emphasized a high-tempo, high-pressing style of play, with pace in wide areas in order to overhaul the club’s fortunes.
31-year-old Nasri, struggling with a lack of match-fitness, who was never the quickest, would not fit into that. It is tough to see how he would add anything to the club; Silva should stay clear.
