Anderlecht's Youri Tielemans

Everton fans have reacted positively to Youri Tielemens’ performance for Anderlecht against Manchester United last night.

United ran out narrow 2-1 winners against Anderlecht in the Europa League last night, after an extremely close contest.

United required extra-time to separate themselves from their Belgian opponents, with Marcus Rashford netting the winning goal.

But, despite the defeat, Tielemens’ display still earned him a lot of credit from Everton fans.

The 19-year-old was at the heart of everything good that Anderlecht did during the contest.

And Everton fans are keen to see the midfielder brought to Goodison Park this summer.

If Everton are to attempt to sign Tielemans, they are likely to face big competition for the midfielder’s signature.

The youngster is regarded as one of the best talents in Europe, and his performances this term have been highly impressive.

Tielemans has made 46 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring 18 times and claiming 12 assists.
