Funes Mori eyeing Everton exit

Ramiro Funes Mori news

Funes Mori tempted to leave Everton in January

Ramiro Funes Mori has admitted that he could part ways with Everton, should he fail to earn sufficient playing time in the coming months. The Argentine has made just two league starts for the Toffees this term.

Funes Mori became a regular under Roberto Martinez last term where he accompanied one of John Stones and Phil Jagielka in the heart of the defence.

However, with the arrival of Ronald Koeman this summer, his gametime has been restricted with summer signing Ashley Williams preferred to play alongside Phil Jagielka at centre-back.

The 25-year-old has now suggested that he could pursue a fresh challenge in the New Year with his place with Argentina likely to be at risk, should he be warming the substitutes' bench.

Mori has appeared in 43 games in all competitions for Everton since joining from River Plate in September last year.
