Fabian Delph’s arrival at Everton will surely not see him stuck on the bench, so it will be interesting to see where he slots into the XI.
The midfielder moved to Goodison Park this summer for £8.5million (Guardian) from Manchester City and has proven he’s a quality top-flight player.
He is a left-footed enforcer that is excellent defensively when he breaks up play and reads the game, while he’s a great passer of the ball too.
The 29-year-old could slot into a central role and potentially be part of a new-look dominant trio.
Delph could fill a box-to-box role alongside defensive protector Idrissa Gueye and playmaker Andre Gomes.
The three players would offer real control in the midfield and be able to battle most teams off the park.
Gueye does want to pursue a move away from the Toffees to join Paris Saint-Germain (Telegraph), but he’s still an Everton player for now and they failed to sign him in January.
Manager Marco Silva will have a fantastic midfield trio at his disposal if Gueye stays on Merseyside and they could give real licence to an attacking trio.
A frontline of Gylfi Sigurdsson, Bernard and Richarlison would be absolutely lethal in front of a trusted midfield.
