To kick off this quiz of the goings-on with the Toffees last week, which Serie A goalkeeper was linked with a switch to the club?

Do you believe that Davy Klaassen was given a fair chance while at Goodison Park?

No, he deserved more time

No, he deserved more time

Yes, he just wasn't good enough

Yes, he just wasn't good enough

The now Werder Bremen man spent just one year with the Toffees between 2017 and 2018, having arrived from Ajax and departing Goodison Park for his current Bundesliga side (per Transfermarkt).

In Everton blue, Klaassen made just 16 appearances, during which he scored zero goals and assisted once (per Transfermarkt), leaving many to rue what could have been.

What do we think?

While it is clear to see that many Everton supporters believe the former Ajax man to have flattered to deceive, there is also a fair portion that believes the Dutchman did not get enough opportunities at Goodison Park.

After scoring 55 goals and bagging 38 assists in 180 appearances for Ajax (per Transfermarkt), it is hard to disagree with the argument that 16 appearances for the Toffees in one season was not enough to judge the 27-year-old’s talents properly.
