Eto'o picked up a knock against Chelsea before the international break and he could be held out of Everton's match against West Brom on Saturday. "Samuel Eto'o got a little knock in the game against Chelsea at the moment he scored and we are going to be a little cautious," Everton manager Roberto Martinez said Friday.

Even when he is fit, Eto'o is not a consistent starter for the Blues, with Romelu Lukaku dominating the playing time up front.

Eto'o was a sub in the 70th minute and found the back of the net within ten minutes in his debut for Everton in the 6-3 loss to Chelsea.

It was a disappointing effort from Everton but a promising effort from their newest signing. Eto'o will surely be used as their super sub and could provide late goals all year. With that said, its hard to rely on him for fantasy as he will almost never play a full 90 minutes.

Eto'o has announced his international retirement.

Eto'o, who officially signed with Everton on Tuesday, goes down as Cameroon's all-time leading scorer. He scored 56 goals in 118 caps for his country. Entering the final stages of his illustrious career, the 33-year-old striker will be able to put his full focus into the Toffees following his retirement from international play.

Eto'o signed a two-year contract with Everton on Tuesday on a free transfer from Chelsea.

Eto'o was released from Chelsea at the end of last season, and had been flirting with a number of clubs before putting pen to paper on a permanent deal with Everton. He scored nine goals for Chelsea last season in 16 starts.

Eto'o is reportedly close to signing a two-year contract with Everton, the Telegraph reports.

Eto'o was been linked with practically every club in Europe after he was released by Chelsea following his one-season stay with the club, and he reportedly was close to joining Liverpool too. However, the extra contract year may be enough for Everton to solidify his signature, as he will certainly be used as a striking mentor to Romelu Lukaku, who still figures to get the starts up front for the Toffees.

Eto'o is on the verge of a move to Merseyside and will undergo a medical Friday before signing a one year deal with Liverpool, according to Goal.com.

Eto'o would be purely a move for depth and experience for an already crowded Liverpool attack. Barring a rash of injuries, the 33-year-old won't get enough time on the pitch to be relevant in most fantasy formats, despite scoring 12 goals in 34 appearances with Chelsea last season.

Everton is continuing to consider a potential agreement with Eto'o as another striking option for the team, according to the Daily Mail.

Eto'o was released by Chelsea at the conclusion of last season, and has been searching for a club since. The striker has been linked with Ajax, Roma, and West Ham including Everton throughout the summer.

Eto'o is currently negotiating a possible deal with Dutch side Ajax, ESPN FC reports.

Eto'o is available on a free transfer after Chelsea decided not to bring him back after his one-year contract expired. There are a few Premier League clubs that have been linked to Eto'o, but he continues to look for an opportunity to play in the Champions League, which Ajax can offer ahead of clubs like West Ham and QPR.
