Nigeria-eligible youngster who could be promoted to Everton's first team

​Everton ended this season on a not-too-impressive note as they played Tottenham to a 2-2 draw at the weekend to wrap up what has been one of the most exciting campaigns.

Looking back at Everton's overall performances all through the season, one can agree that Marco Silva needs to reinforce his midfield department next season.

The Toffees were uncoordinated at the middle of the park over the course of the season, which gave opponents numerous opportunities to score against them.

The ugly situation equally prevented them from scoring many goals as they only managed to score 54 goals from 38 League matches.

Meanwhile, former Watford manager Marco Silva will likely want to give some talented U23 players an opportunity to lay claim to a first-team spot during the pre-season. 

The 20-year-old Dennis Adeniran deserves to be promoted to the senior team due to his exploits with the U23s, whom he helped win the Premier League 2 title.

The highly-rated midfielder signed a four-year contract with the Toffees in 2017 after completing his £4m switch from Fulham. 

The centre midfielder has tasted first-team action while he was with Fulham, so he knows what it takes to play among older and well-known stars.

Adeniran can equally feature as a playmaker, hence, he will be a great addition to the Merseyside club next season.

Though Adeniran played for England during the 2016 European U17 championship, the youngster is still eligible to play for Nigeria in the future.
