Mohamed Besic’s future at Everton looked bleak last season when he was farmed out on loan.
The defensive midfielder, who can play at centre-back or right-back, spent the second half of the 2017-18 campaign at Middlesbrough.
During his time at the Championship outfit, Besic made 15 league appearances, scoring one goal and creating two assists.
The versatile player is in limbo at the moment, particularly now that there is a new manager at the helm in the form of Marco Silva.
He is putting hmself in a decent position at the moment as he put in a man-of-the-match display against Lille in a pre-season friendly on Saturday.

Whether Besic is in Silva’s plans remains to be seen, but the Bosnian international did suggest that his future is out of his hands.
While speaking to the Liverpool Echo, the ex-Hamburg player insisted that he is “happy” at Everton but is unsure whether he will be at the club for the upcoming season.
On Twitter, some fans made it clear that they want to see Besic in an Everton shirt again.
He’s quality. Twitter will be full of Evertonians claiming that they have ‘always rated Besic’ soon

Just got to look at his performances for Bosnia to see how much class he has. Man marked Messi vs Argentina and also Bale vs Wales. Was quality in both games. Would love him to get a run of games for us and no injuries.

Could be my favourite Dog of War since Parkinson . He’s got the tools just needs an injury free season . Only young too . Hopefully he’s great till Xmas then he gets a new contract . Can save us a lot of money . Hopefully management rated his performance last night .

I loved him, then fell out with him cos of his injury record, if he can keep himself fit him and Gana would ruin teams between them. Here’s hoping.

He’s a good player he just needs to stay fit and healthy that’s always been the problem. He’s obviously got ability. Could play the Gareth Barry role this season.
