Everton fans react on Twitter to Nikola Kalinic rumour

Nikola Kalinic of ACF Fiorentina celebrates after scoring a goal during the Serie A match between ACF Fiorentina and SS Lazio at Stadio Artemio Franchi on May 13, 2017 in Florence, Italy.

Everton fans aren't mad on the idea of signing Nikola Kalinic.

Gianluca Di Marzio claims that Everton are set to make a £22.5 million offer for Fiorentina striker Nikola Kalinic.

Everton are still on the hunt for a prolific striker after losing Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United this summer.

Sandro Ramirez and Wayne Rooney have been brought in but the consensus is that the Toffees will hedge their bets by recruiting another striking option before the window shuts.

And according to the Italian journalist, that man could be Kalinic, who scored 15 Serie A goals in 26 starts last season - and 20 in 32 starts across all competitions.

The Croatia international has previously had a failed stint with Blackburn Rovers, scoring seven times in 44 Premier League games, and some Everton fans aren't keen on the idea of signing the 29-year-old.

If the report is accurate then Everton fans don't have to worry about seeing him on Merseyside, given it claims that Kalinic has his heart set on a move to AC Milan.

Ronald Koeman's side kick off their Premier League season with a visit of Stoke City on Saturday.
