Everton’s pursuit of potential late additions to their squad has extended to encompass Maxwel Cornet, the dynamic attacker currently affiliated with West Ham United, as reported by the Daily Mail.
Maxwel Cornet boasts a notable international record, having featured in 30 games for the Ivory Coast national team and impressively scoring 6 goals. According to Transfermarkt.com, his market value has been estimated at 12 million euros.
The print edition of the Daily Mail has unveiled Everton’s earnest interest in securing the talents of the Ivorian winger. Particularly striking is Cornet’s versatility, as he has demonstrated adeptness not only as a forward but also in the wider flanks of the field.
In the previous summer, Cornet embarked on a significant transition from Burnley to West Ham, commanding a considerable fee of £17.8 million. Despite the weight of this transfer, Cornet’s ambitions to make a resounding impact on the pitch have remained largely unfulfilled. This is evident from his absence in the goals and assists columns, reflecting his contributions across a modest 14 Premier League appearances.

If the speculated move to Goodison Park does materialize, Cornet would have the opportunity to reunite with his former mentor, Sean Dyche. Their collaborative history at Turf Moor witnessed Cornet thrive under Dyche’s guidance, a pivotal chapter that played a role in facilitating his high-profile transfer to East London. This noteworthy progression occurred despite Burnley’s eventual relegation and Dyche’s subsequent departure.
During his involvement in 26 Premier League matches under the stewardship of Everton’s incumbent manager, Cornet showcased his prowess by effectively finding the net nine times and also providing a valuable assist. His distinctive proficiency with his left foot remained a focal point, a skill honed through a transition from his original role as a conventional left-back during his tenure at Lyon to a more advanced position as a striker.
