31-Year-Old Forward Everton Premier
Kone continues to work his way back form a torn ACL, but manager Roberto Martinez said Tuesday he still needs to work on his fitness. "Arouna has already been working with the team and sometimes joining in with 11-a-side situations, which is very promising," Martinez said. "But he still needs a bit of time to adapt to the physicality and the needs of the competition."
Kone missed most of last season with a torn ACL and even when he does return, he isn't likely to see much playing time in Premier League matches ahead of Romelu Lukaku.
