Everton supporters appear to be delighted with the rumours that Southampton boss Ronald Koeman could bring Virgil Van Dijk with him to Goodison Park.
The Daily Mirror suggested that Van Dijk will become an Everton target, once Koeman moves to the Merseyside club.
Koeman is expected to be announced as the new Everton manager in the coming days, and he is set to be backed with masses of funds.
Everton are believed to be keen to invest some of their money in attempting to bring Van Dijk to Merseyside, and Toffees supporters are excited by the developments.

Wonder which Southampton players will follow Koeman in making the step up, only Van Dijk who's good enough to make our squad #saintsfc— Graeme Johnson (@Graeme_Johnson_) June 6, 2016
Southampton fans, meanwhile, seem to suggest that Van Dijk will stay with them.
The Dutch defender has had a highly impressive first campaign in English football, after moving from Celtic last summer.
Southampton followers clearly do not want Van Dijk to leave, and they have made their feelings known on social media.
If 'The Snake' wants to sign Fraser, VVD & Long he's surely going to spend over £100m given their contract lengths?! #saintsfc— the wize saint (@LeeCGregory) June 7, 2016
My only worry with RK taking our players to Everton with him is that he will know if Forster/VvD have release clauses or not #saintsfc— Nick Whitcher (@gangleman) June 6, 2016
I'm just glad he talked Forster, VVD and JWP into new contracts before his new agent got the $$ in his eyes! #saintsfc— Stuart Miller (@SaintStu19) June 4, 2016
Scenes when buying Fraser Forster and Virgil Van Dijk cost Ronald Koeman his entire transfer kitty. #SaintsFC— St. Mary's Musings (@StMarysMusings) June 7, 2016
