Everton may sell key player on specific condition, but Dyche demands immediate replacement

According to reports, Everton would be open to selling midfielder Amadou Onana if they receive a lucrative offer for the talented player who was signed in the summer of 2022, relays the GN.

The Athletic suggests that manager Sean Dyche would look for a suitable replacement should the 21-year-old depart, with the club setting a price tag of £60 million. There have been rumors linking Manchester United’s Scott McTominay as a potential replacement, but it is not ideal to consider him as a substitute for Onana, given their contrasting abilities and contributions. Onana has made an impressive impact since joining Everton and has quickly established himself as a key player for the team.

While Dyche has occasionally left him on the bench, it is understandable considering the number of fixtures and the manager’s tendency to adapt to the opposition. It remains to be seen which clubs express interest in acquiring Onana, as Chelsea and Newcastle were previously linked to him even during the January transfer window.

If he does leave, Everton would make a substantial profit from his sale, while his retention would allow Dyche to potentially build the team around the Belgian midfielder. Given his young age and exceptional skills, Onana has the potential to further improve with the support of teammates deployed in a manner that maximizes his abilities.
