Everton midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin has been sidelined with an injury until the end of this year.
The Premier League outfit have confirmed that the midfielder has undergone a surgery on a tendon injury in his right quadriceps muscle, which will keep him out of action for around three months.
The 24-year-old joined the Toffees this summer and he was expected to replace Gueye in the starting lineup.
Gbamin’s Everton career has had a rough start and it will be interesting to see how he performs on his return.
The midfielder is expected to return to action towards the end of January and he might need a few more weeks to regain his sharpness.
Furthermore, he will be performing in a new league and he might need time to adapt.
It will be interesting to see what happens during the January transfer window now. Everton should look to bring in another midfielder when the window reopens.
Delph has had injury issues since joining the Blues as well.
The Everton fans have reacted to the update on social media. Here are some of the reactions.
