During the 2019-20 campaign, the 22-year-old made 30 appearances in the Premier League for the Canaries, who got relegated from the top flight of English football, according to WhoScored.
During the 2018-19 season, the youngster made 26 starts and five substitute appearances in the Championship for the Canaries, scoring four goals and providing two assists in the process, according to WhoScored.
Good signing for Everton?
Godfrey is a very good and promising young defender who did well in the Premier League, and he would be a good addition to Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton side, not just for now, but in the coming years as well.
