Everton’s midfield reconstruction is doing quite well. Idrissa Gueye and Nikola Vlasic have already left the club, and Andre Gomes and Fabian Delph have join. However, Everton continued to strengthen the second line so yesterday late in the evening announced the purchase of another midfielder, this time from the Bundesliga, who personally resembles to me a copy of Paul Pogba. Jean-Philippe Gbamin has joined everton on £25m deal for five-year.
Jean-Philippe Gbamin from Mainz who cost Everton 25 million euros .The same amount as the buyout of Gomes. For those who are not watching the Bundesliga, I will write that he is a 23-year-old from Cote d’Ivoire, who which is not a surprise and was trained in France.
He is 186 cm tall and with his figure and movement resembles like Pogba, although the quality is clearly inferior to him. However, this does not change the fact that in Germany he certainly stood out and could easily get into the teams from the top leaders.

Everton will not regret it, if only Jean-Philippe Gbamin properly catches the climate because he is a player with a nice vision of the game, good physical conditions with a good distance shot. Sometimes he kick ball nonchalantly like Pogba but in general he is at least a good player.
The team from Mainz is famous for sending players into the world. To mention here Andre Schurrli, Abdou Diallo, Shinji Okazaki, Loris Karius and Neven Suboticia. Jean-Philippe Gbamin is a guarantee of a certain quality, although it is known that everything depends mainly on him.
In Everton, he received a contract until 2024, and the 25 million euros Germany received became their second largest seller transfer in history. For the Everton, such a breakthrough is not an Ivoryan, because the 23-year-old is their 9th most expensive purchase.
It is also worth adding that as part of the bonuses this amount can increase to 27 million euros and 5 million euros from all this will go to Lens which is the club that pushed the midfielder to Mainz.
