Everton goalkeeper Jonas Lossl could be headed for an Everton exit with Inter Miami and Marseille interested.
The 2019 transfer window saw the arrival of Jean Philippe-Gbamin, Alex Iwobi, Moie Kean, Fabian Delph and Andre Gomes. Apart from the aforementioned 5 players, Everton also secured the services of Jonas Lossl on a free transfer. It was seen as a piece of clever business done by the Toffees. Approximately, after one and a half years, one will beg to differ from the above notion.
Lossl was signed as a backup keeper to Jordan Pickford but was never able to challenge the Englishman’s throne and was considered less trustable to Pickford. He was sent out on loan back to his former club, Huddersfield, in the January transfer window of 2020, where he spent the rest of the season.
Upon his return to Everton, there were whispers of the Toffees signing a new keeper to keep Pickford on his toes, sending a strong message that Lossl is clearly not the one Carlo Ancelotti prefers. The Royal Blues managed to sign Robin Olsen on loan from AS Roma on deadline day. The Swede has performed brilliantly in limited appearances, enough to convince Everton to make the signing permanent.
Lossl is currently the third choice keeper and nowhere in Ancelotti’s plans. The Italian boss does rotate his keepers but has neglected Lossl. It is quite surprising that he is yet to make a professional Everton appearance. However, he may be headed towards a Goodison exit this January.

According to Tipsbladet (via Sport Witness), the Denmark international is wanted by Olympique Marseille and Inter Miami. Marseille have been impressed with Lossl due to his fruitful span with Guingamp whereas Inter Miami are looking for prominent players from Europe. They already have the likes of Gonzalo Higuain and Blaise Matuidi and would like to have Lossl to the roster.
The 31 year old wants to play regular football ahead of the Euros this summer in order to remain in contention for the Denmark squad under Kasper Hjulmand.
A transfer is likely considering Lossl’s desire to play regularly but the Toffees not being in a position to offer that. Further, the signing of Olsen permanently sends out the message that Lossl features nowhere in Ancelotti’s plans.
It would be up to the Dane to decide his next destination, whether to stay in Europe or look abroad and go to MLS.
