Southampton fans react on Twitter to rumours linking Everton with Graziano Pelle

Southampton are reportedly lining up a bid for Everton striker Graziano Pelle.

Southampton fans seem unconcerned about the rumours linking Graziano Pelle with a move to Everton.

According to the Daily Star, Ronald Koeman wants Pelle to follow him to Goodison Park.

Koeman apparently is prepared to make a £9 million offer for Pelle when he is officially announced as Everton boss, but Saints fans seem fairly happy with the deal.

Pelle only has one year left on his contract at St. Mary’s, and Southampton supporters have questioned whether he is even the strongest attacking option at the club.

Pelle moved to Southampton back in 2014, and his first two seasons in English football have been impressive.

The 30-year-old has scored fairly frequently for Southampton, but his importance diminished towards the back end of last term.

The form of Shane Long forced Pelle out of Southampton’s starting line-up, leaving the Italian international having to play a covering role.

If Pelle does join Everton, he will likely be used to help replace Romelu Lukaku, who is expected to depart this summer.
