In Focus: Nobody could blame Robles for leaving Everton

Everton goalkeeper Joel Robles is attracting interest from Spanish clubs Malaga, Las Palmas, Deportivo La Coruna and Getafe, according to Marca.

What’s the word?

Robles has been at Goodison Park for the past four years following his 2013 switch from Atletico Madrid.

The 27-year-old played the majority of last season as Everton’s first-choice keeper, but doubts over his future have emerged.

The arrival of Jordan Pickford from Sunderland is likely to push Robles back to the substitutes bench.

Marca claim that four Spanish clubs have enquired about Robles’s availability after he rejected a new contract at the Merseyside outfit.

Should Robles move on?

Playing second fiddle to another goalkeeper is never ideal, and Robles will certainly be doing that at Everton this season if he stays.

The Spaniard, who has one year left on his current contract, spent  large chunk of his time being second choice to Tim Howard.

He got his chance when the American left last year, but he faced competition once again when Maarten Stekelenburg was signed by Koeman.

Pickford will go straight in at number one, so it is understandable if Robles wants to move to a club where he can be guaranteed regular game time.

On top of that, it would be a boost for him to return to his homeland.
