Fabrizio Romano of Everton has stated that midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure will sign a contract extension with the Merseyside club’very soon.’
Since Sean Dyche took over as manager of Everton in January, the Mali international has become one of the club’s most significant players.
Doucoure’s reintroduction into the Everton first team after being shut out under former manager Frank Lampard is undoubtedly one of Dyche’s biggest accomplishments since arriving at Goodison Park.
Under Dyche, the midfielder has made 26 appearances in all competitions, scoring eight goals, the highest of any Everton player during that time.
Doucoure also scored the game-winning goal against Bournemouth in the final game of last season, keeping the Toffees in the Premier League, etching his name in the grand old team’s history books.
Doucoure’s current contract is set to expire at the end of the season, which has led to some speculation about his future. Nevertheless, it now seems that the 30-year-old is set to commit his future to Everton.
Doucoure is on the verge of signing a new contract with Everton.
According to Romano, Doucoure will sign a new one-year contract with Everton’very shortly,’ with an option for a second year.
“EXCL: Abdoulaye Doucoure, set to sign new deal at Everton very soon,” Romano posted on X, formerly known as Twitter.
“Understand agreement is nearing completion on new contract until June 2025.”
“An option until June 2026 is included.” The transaction is nearing completion.”
With that in mind, everything points towards Doucoure signing a new deal with Everton in the very near future.
Dyche will no doubt be hoping that the midfielder can help Everton escape relegation this season and improve on their lackluster performances last season.
