A bundle of Everton flop Jean-Philippe Gbamin’s match-worn shirts and training kits have been listed for sale on Facebook for as little as £300. The 27-year-old midfielder will unfortunately go down as one of the worst signings in the Toffees’ history having featured just six times in the Premier League since his £25million transfer from Mainz in the summer of 2019.
Gbamin’s Goodison Park career has been wrecked by various injuries although he has spent time out on loan in Russia and Turkey with CSKA Moscow and Trabzonspor in the past two seasons.
The Ivorian is now heading for the exit door this summer and as his departure beckons, it appears somebody is trying to profit from his underwhelming Everton career.
A fan posted an image on Twitter of a Facebook post which appears to have a host of Gbamin’s Everton kit for sale.
The advert read: “Everton Football Club Clothes Bundle – Brand New and Match Worn Shirts 37 £300.”

The post featured Gbamin’s shirts from the 2020/21 season and 2021/22 campaign plus some training tops and jackets.
There were even some Hummel shocks thrown into the package for good measure as well as a zip-up warmup top.
Everton are set to part company with Gbamin this summer and there is undeniable frustration and disappointment about the way his Toffees career has panned out.
Speaking to BBC Sport, agent Bernard Collignon has disclosed that his client is now desperate to embark on a fresh challenge.

“We will have to find another project for him. I am the one who chose Everton for him because it would have been a stepping stone to move on elsewhere,” he said before recalling how highly rated the player once was.
“There was interest from Arsenal, Tottenham and even Jurgen Klopp wanted to sign him for Liverpool six months before but now Jean-Philippe wants to go back to Germany.”
Collignon finds it hard to digest how Gbamin’s Everton career has panned out after showing huge promise at Mainz.
“It is unbelievable what has happened at Everton,” he added.
“Jean-Philippe is so disappointed with everything that has happened and how things have not worked out for him.
“The reason he suffered his initial injury was because he was not fit. That is why he got injured. They had to give him time and not rush him back into action.
“The club should have let him play in reserve games to achieve full fitness and also to gain confidence so that he would be ready for the intensity of the Premier League.”
Gbamin does appear to be on the road to finally returning to full fitness as he mustered 24 appearances in all competitions this season with Trabzonspor.
