Everton are reportedly considering activating a clause to bring Nikola Vlasic
back to Goodison Park – two years after selling him.
The 23-year-old has been a huge success at SKA Moscow since his forgettable spell
with the toffees, Last season he produced a combined 18 goals and assists and he now
looks nailed on to start for Croatia against England in their Euro 2020 opener on Sunday.
Now reports in Russia suggest that Everton want him to make a comeback and are
ready to make a move to get him back following this summer’s tournament.
Some reports even claim the Toffees have a first refusal buy-back option for the
attacking midfielder. Vlasic joined Everton when Ronald Koeman was in charge but
the Dutchman was axed just months later.
He failed to impress new boss Marco Silva and he was eventually flogged for £14m
to CSKA in 2019 – with his father insisting the Portuguese coach had made ‘a big mistake’.
And it appears he may have been right, with the Toffees ready to bring him back.
However, Vlasic’s agent has allegedly told Soccer he has received no contact yet from the
Blues. However, he refused to rule it out, saying: “Everton has not contacted me about
Nikola, and this is not a question at the moment. “But who knows what the future holds.
Everything is possible.”
