Everton fans are excited by the rumours that they could sign Marvin Plattenhardt from Hertha Berlin this summer.

Sky Sports have reported that the Toffees are keen on the left-back, with Marco Silva wanting to add him to their squad.

And Everton fans feel that Plattenhardt could be a great addition to the squad at Goodison Park.

If Plattenhardt was to move to Everton, his pathway into the first-team would be clear.

Everton clearly need a new left-back, with their current options in the position looking very short.

Leighton Baines is their best choice in the position currently, but he has reached the age of 33, and has struggled with injury in recent seasons.

Plattenhardt, meanwhile, has impressed in the Bundesliga - with his performances at Hertha Berlin catching the eye.

Plattenhardt is currently in Russia with Germany, as he is part of Joachim Lowe’s squad for the World Cup.
