Everton fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to speculation (The Mirror) linking the club with a move for Morgan Schneiderlin in the summer transfer window.

Schneiderlin is on the books of Manchester United at the moment and has a contract with the Red Devils until June 2019, according to Transfermarkt.co.uk.

The France international defensive midfielder joined United from Premier League rivals Southampton in the summer of 2015.

Much was expected of the 26-year-old at Old Trafford, but Schneiderlin did not have a great 2015-16 campaign.

The former Strasbourg midfielder scored one goal and created nine chances in 29 Premier League appearances for United last season.

Schneiderlin had a pass accuracy of 89% and a shot accuracy of 14%, and won 19 headers, nine dribbles and 50 tackles.

According to The Mirror, Everton are interested in signing Schneiderlin from United in the summer transfer window.

It has been reported that Koeman, who was recently appointed the new Everton manager and who worked with Schneiderlin at Southampton, is monitoring the situation of the Frenchman at Old Trafford.

“He'd happily snap up Schneiderlin, who played for him at Saints, if Mourinho makes him available - although Everton would have to stump up the £25m United paid Southampton a year ago,” states the report in The Mirror.

Everton fans have taken to Twitter to have their say on the speculation linking the club with a move for Schneiderlin in the summer transfer window.
