Why Everton should sign Cesc Fabregas from Chelsea on a free transfer
As per a report in Independent, Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas expects to stay at Stamford Bridge until the end of this season and will become a free agent in the summer. He is allowed to sign a pre-contract agreement with any club and join that side in the summer. The Spaniard said that clubs would be attracted to hear that they can sign him on a pre-contract.
As of now, Italian side AC Milan were the favourites to sign the 31-year-old but the player has rejected the claim that he has spoken to clubs (h/t Independent). Hence, it is clear that teams can speak to the midfielder and get him for free.
There is one club that can really benefit from having Cesc Fabregas in their squad – Everton. Here’s why:
Fabregas’ arrival will enhance Everton to a new level
Everton have made a terrific start to life under new manager Marco Silva. They have breached the top-six code in the league and look like a proper squad to challenge for a Europa League place this season.
The Toffees did an awful lot of profitable business over the summer, leaving them in a situation with a squad of players capable of toppling the best. The arrival of Yerry Mina, Lucas Digne, Richarlison, Andre Gomes, etc. has enhanced the quality of the team. After the World Cup exploits with England, Jordan Pickford is maturing himself into one of the best goalkeepers in the country.
It is all the making of a bright Evertonian future after a few years of trepidation under several managers. However, they can further amplify the quality of their midfield by signing Cesc Fabregas, who will be a free agent come the end of this season.
Currently, Silva is deploying the midfield partnership of Idrissa Gueye and Andre Gomes, with Gylfi Sigurdsson playing as a number 10. But they do not have an adequate player who can be crafty with the ball and open up defences with breathtaking passes.
That player could be Fabregas for the Toffees. They can add the Spaniard to the mix and make it a well-rounded squad. The 31-year-old won’t cost them a penny in the market and still has 3-4 years of football left in him to contribute at the highest level.
Hence, Everton should sign the Chelsea midfielder; it’s a no-brainer.
