Everton fans are urging Ronald Koeman to make a move for Manchester United attacking midfielder Juan Mata, if he is put in charge at Goodison Park.

Koeman is expected to become Everton’s next manager in the coming days, with the Merseyside club currently negotiating a compensation package with Southampton for the Dutchman.

Everton have already agreed personal terms with Koeman, and he is likely to be announced as the new manager at the Merseyside club in the near future.

The Toffees will reportedly give Koeman £100 million to spend if he takes over, and Everton fans want some of that money to be invested in Mata.

West Ham United have already been linked with Mata in Spanish paper El Confidencial, and Everton supporters want their side to match the London club’s ambition.

Mata’s future at Old Trafford is uncertain following the appointment of Jose Mourinho at United.

Mourinho sold Mata while he was in charge at Chelsea, and there are doubts whether he will want to keep hold of the Spaniard.

If Mata is made available plenty of teams are likely to be interested, but Everton supporters appear to want their club to be at the front of the queue.
