Djibril Sidibé 19

Everton finalised a deal to bring Djibril Sidibé in on a season-long loan from AS Monaco on the eve of the 2019 summer transfer deadline as cover for Seamus Coleman following Jonjoe Kenny's loan move to Schalke 04.

The Blues concluded negotiations with the French club for the right-back that will see him spend 2019-20 at Goodison Park for €2.5m with an option to make the transfer permanent next summer for around €14m.

Sidibé, who was a member of the French squad that won the World Cup last year, has made 86 Ligue 1 appearances for Monaco since joining them from Lille in 2016.

He was particularly impressive for the principality club in those first two seasons but suffered a serious knee injury in the 2017-18 campaign that almost put him out of contention for Russia 2018.

His decision not to undergo surgery prior to the tournament and risk not being selected has been cited by at least one observer as being a primary cause of his subsequent knee problems and inability to replicate his best form since.

Get French Football News contributor, Jeremy Smith, says that while it's possible that Sidibé's disappointing performances could be partially due to the "bad atmosphere" that developed at Monaco, the 27-year-old's move to Everton should be treated with some caution until he can prove that his recurring injury problems are behind him.

“Everton are recruiting with the intent to win trophies and play on the biggest stage," Sidibé said upon joining the Blues. "I am 100 per cent motivated and ready to help the club achieve its goals and to achieve my own individual goals.”
