After losing Anthony Gordon to Newcastle in January, it was reported by 90min that Sean Dyche had his eye on Newcastle United winger Ryan Fraser.

Ryan Fraser and Eddie Howe had a good relationship at Bournemouth and any issues about their time together at Bournemouth in which Ryan Fraser left the club on a free in the summer of 2020, are thought to be behind them now.

However, since the start of the season. Fraser has found game time hard to come by and has only made eight appearances, all coming from the bench.

Dyche wanted Fraser at Everton

When Sean Dyche took over at Everton it was reported by 90Min that he would be able to bring in additions to his very thin squad and Ryan Fraser was on his list of targets. The window closed and nobody joined Everton and since then Fraser has found himself training with the U21’s as reported in the Daily Mail.

They claim that Newcastle see Fraser’s future elsewhere and it is expected he will move on this summer. The player, too, has expressed a desire for more game-time.

Frustratingly, if Fraser had joined Everton in January, it would have been one extra player in the squad. But in typical Everton fashion, they left things too late and ended the window in a worse position than they entered it.

Farhad promised signings

During the window Farhad Moshiri promised the Everton fans during a meeting with the clubs Fan Advisory Board that the club would strengthen saying.

“We need a striker. We’ll get one.”

Southampton’s Che Adams and Genk striker Paul Onuachu, who joined relegation rivals Southampton, were all linked with moves to Everton and when you hear the owner promising signings only for him to break that promise is incredibly frustarting as it is the fans that feel it.

If Dyche had got Fraser, I am not saying he would be our saviour, but if we are to stick with Dyche, then we need to trust his decisons and so far with six points out of nine, he seems to have gotten things right.
