Donny van de Beek urged to join Everton: Should the Toffees push for the player?

Speaking to Football Insider, former Leeds United player Paddy Kenny tipped Manchester United’s Donny van de Beek to join Everton. The player was earlier linked with the Toffees over the summer this year.

Frustrations increase for Donny van de Beek as the player struggles for game time at Man United. In haste to leave in the January transfer window, the Dutchman hired agent Ali Dursun after advice from his club teammates.

While he is ready to leave Manchester United and several clubs have shown a lot of interest in the player. Thus, Everton are one of the most interested clubs in Van de Beek as they want to sign him on a loan deal until the end of the season in the upcoming January transfer market.

Van de Beek’s uncalled for struggle at Man United

At Ajax, Van de Beek was one of the number one talented stars who appeared to have the world at their feet. He was part of the Dutch side that stormed to the Champions League semi-final in 2019. However, the Dutchman has played only six matches for the Red Devils this season, scoring one goal.

Playing mostly as a substitute, the 24-year-old midfielder has averaged 0.7 tackles, 0.3 shots and 1.0 key passes per game in the Premier League. In spite of this, his possession distribution has been quite accurate in the opposition half after making 77.8% of his attempted passes (stats via WHOSCORED).

“He’s not getting a game. I’m sure he’s desperate to get out of Man United, I would be. He’s a talented boy as well, clubs will want him.”

“If you have the chance to go to Everton, where you can get first-team football, why not?”

Now that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has left the Red Devils, there could be a glimmer of hope for Donny. The manager never gave him the playing time he deserves. Under a new manager, the Dutchman would be optimistic to play and show his worth again.

Should Everton push for the Dutchman?

If we compare Everton’s performances this season to that of last season, there is a huge gap in quality. Within the first three games of the season, the team’s talisman Dominic Calvert-Lewin was sidelined with a toe injury and is out since then.

As a result, manager Rafa Benitez is forced to depend on signings Demarai Gray and Andros Townsend. The two initially supported the team well but are now just average. The team lacks quality in the midfield to create chances and to hold off the opposition, with Benitez forced to play Fabian Delph.

Hence, Donny van de Beek’s introduction to the Everton side could help the team stabilize their midfield. The player is filled with talent and can both create and defend. His quality to play on both sides of the pitch makes him a great box-to-box midfielder, a role that Benitez could very well make use of.
