Everton fans have had a mixed reaction to reports that they are interested in Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman.

The Dutch international is said by the Liverpool Echo to be on Ronald Koeman’s transfer wishlist at Goodison Park.

Strootman is unlikely to come cheap, with Roma wanting £30 million for the central midfielder and some Everton fans are concerned about the price tag.

While there is little doubting Strootman’s ability, his failure to stay fit is a worry.

Strootman has struggled with injuries throughout his career, and some Everton fans do not want him signing due to his track record of failing to stay off the treatment table.

Everton are set to invest heavily in their squad over the summer transfer window, as they have funds available to them following the investment of Farhad Moshiri.

Strootman’s arrival would be a high profile one, and outline their ambition, but Everton have also been linked with a host of other players already.

The Toffees are believed to be considering Tim Krul, Vincent Janssen and Graziano Pelle as Koeman aims to increase his options.
