Breaking News: Everton Triggers One-Year Option to Keep Abdoulaye Doucoure at the Club
In a move that surprised many in the football world, Everton has triggered a one-year option to keep midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure at the club until the end of the 2023-24 campaign. The Mali international was previously out of contract this summer, but Toffees have exercised their choice for another year.
The decision came as no surprise, given how crucial Doucoure has been for Everton since arriving from Watford back in 2020. With his relentless work rate and impressive skill set, he quickly became a fan favorite at Goodison Park after scoring nine goals in his first two seasons with the club.
Doucoure Aims to Help Everton Stay in Premier League
This news couldn’t come at a better time as Sean Dyche’s side is currently sitting just two points above relegation zone. They are set to play Bournemouth on Sunday’s final game which will determine whether they stay or go down from Premier League.
Doucouré’s form had dipped under former manager Frank Lampard, but he found himself once again playing an integral role under Dyche during these latter stages of this season; netting four goals in his last nine games.
The Future of Everton
This move indicates that Everton has a long term plan, and wants Doucoure to be part of it. With his experience and leadership qualities on and off the pitch, he will play a significant role in shaping the future of this ambitious club.
Doucoure’s commitment to Everton is an exciting development for Toffees fans worldwide as they look forward to another season with their star midfielder leading from the front.
