Everton must let go of these two players in January

Arouna Kone was signed as a Roberto Martinez favourite from his Wigan days. The 33-year-old has never really looked convincing in an Everton shirt since his arrival, and not many Toffees fans would miss him if he was moved on this January.

It is clear Ronald Koeman doesn’t see the Ivorian as part of his future plans, as he has only made three substitute Premier League appearances and no starts so far this season.

His position in the team is important; he needs to be providing a number of goals via substitute appearances and occasional starts across the campaign, so there isn’t such an over-reliance on star man Romelu Lukaku.
