Everton fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to the speculation linking the club with a move for Newcastle United midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum.
According to a recent report in The Mirror, Everton are interested in signing Wijnaldum from Newcastle in the summer transfer window.
The Magpies have been relegated from the Premier League and will play in the Championship next season.
Wijnaldum did not have a great campaign on a personal level, but he has retained his place in the Netherlands national team.
The Mirror claims that Everton and Southampton scouts were at the Netherlands’ friendly international match against Austria on Saturday.
It has been reported that Ronald Koeman, who is currently in charge of the Saints but could become the new Everton manager, is an admirer of his compatriot.
The 25-year-old midfielder scored 11 goals and created 48 chances in 38 Premier League appearances for the Magpies this past season.
Below are some of the best comments, including some from before the speculation started:
Would happily have Wijnaldum at Everton. Still suprised that we didn't in the first place last season. #efc— Mike Allen (@Mallen1878) June 3, 2016
From the teams that have gone down I'd like to see us try an get Redmond, Amavi, Traore, Wijnaldum and Sissoko as squad players??? #EFC— Matt Vicary (@Vicaz22) May 20, 2016
