According to the Mirror, Everton will be without Morgan Schneiderlin ahead of the Premier League returning in June as he has a ‘torn meniscus’. The 30-year-old picked up the knee injury at the end of February and Liverpool Echo said he underwent surgery before the season was postponed due to Covid-19.
Schneiderlin has been building up his fitness ever since, but he won’t be ready to feature for Everton in two weeks. Carlo Ancelotti won’t have Jean-Philippe Gbamin at his disposal either after he suffered an achilles injury, so he’s left to call upon Andre Gomes, Fabian Delph, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Tom Davies.
Schneiderlin has made 18/34 appearances in all competitions for Everton this season, suffering multiple injuries over the course of the campaign while struggling for consistency. He’s only made four Premier League appearances in 2020, racking up 262 minutes of football since December 2019.
Schneiderlin’s lack of playing time, poor form and advancing age could see him moved on this summer. Ancelotti wants fresh legs in midfield and has been on the hunt for another addition to the engine room, so could that come at the expense of the French international?
