Nikola Vlasic cost Everton around £10 million to sign from Croatian outfit Hajduk Split in the summer of 2017.
The attacking midfielder arrived at Goodison Park in the same summer as the likes of Gylfi Sigurdsson and Wayne Rooney. The presence of those two, both vying for the same positions on the pitch as Vlasic, meant that the Croatian struggled for regular game time.
In his first season, with opportunities limited, Vlasic made just 12 Premier League appearances and failed to impress in English football. Ahead of the new campaign, the 21-year-old was shipped off on loan to CSKA Moscow.
At the end of last season, Vlasic was considered a flop. In Russia, however, the 2-cap international has rediscovered his best form. Recently, CSKA announced that the midfielder had won the player of the month award for the second month in a row.
Despite an underwhelming first season, Vlasic is showing he may well have a future with the Toffees yet. Plenty of Everton fans agree too, with 62% of those we polled stating that they believe Vlasic can have a future under Marco Silva.
