Ghana starlet Christian Atsu has agreed in principle to join English Premier League side Everton from giants Chelsea, GHANAsoccernet.com can confirm. 

GHANAsoccernet.com confirmed on the 22-year-old is close to a switch to the Goodison Park for a season-long loan and the Toffees have moved even closer to securing his signature.

Chelsea left out the winger they signed from Portuguese giants FC Porto out of their pre-season squad and have considered a range of offers lined up for him.

The Blues have agreed to allow Atsu follow Romelu Lukaku to Everton as a loanee.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has identified Atsu as a perfect replacement for Spanish starlet Gerard Deulofeu who has rejoined Barcelona after finishing his loan contract at the club.

Atsu showed flashes of brilliance for Ghana at the World Cup and this has attracted huge interest around him.

    In fact, Atsu is the most handsome player among the black stars players, followed by Prince Kevin and Dede Ayew.

    Thats a good idea for the player n his team chelsea so that he gain experience for another season bt he his going to play the EPL this time so we thank God for what is happening n what He is about to do

    Everton???
    On the wings they have..
    Pienaar who is amazing with Baines..

    Osman, Oviedo, Mirallas, McGeady who can play there.

    Oviedo is also Baines’s backup but was used a lot on the wing before his injury..

    Kone can also play there, though I don’t think he will.

    Lets pray and hope Atsu gets enough game time to develop better.

    @Deladem… Everton has FA cup.. Europa league.. premier league carling cup etc… Atsu will get more than enough playing time.. he is good enough to compete against osman, Oviedo is a left back, mirallas doesnt last 90minutes, McGeady is old and Martinez and Atus attitude will bring them together.. they are both relatively calm in nature

    I have played alongside with him in coast league @achimota and am very proud of him. We thank God for such a great thinking for him joining Everton and I want edge all Ghanaians to expect nothing but the best from my team mate Christian Atsu.

    With Roberto Martinez Atsu is going to be one of the deadliest players in the premier league.He is a players manager.I hope its not one of the those headlines typical of GSN.

  7. Deladem says:

    Papa Addo,
    I agree with your optimism.
    For Oviedo, I meant his link up play with OSMAN on the wing is great, not himself as a winger.
    We wish Atsu all the best.

  8. […] Christian Atsu’s move to Everton is very close to be completed, that’s according to Ghana Soccernet. […]

    great news for my fellow ghanaian star atsu….wishing him all the best in the up-coming season but one advise to him is that on the field of play managers always look out for players who are very smart,wise & intelligent.
