If Everton want to sign Aaron Mooy this summer, they will have to offer a lot more than £18 million.
That is the opinion of Huddersfield Town supporters anyway amid rumours linking their Australian fans’ favourite with a move to Goodison Park.
The Sun (20 June, page 52) have reported that both Everton and Southampton are interested in Mooy and could be willing to offer £18 million for his services. Now, this would earn Huddersfield a tidy profit on a player they signed from Manchester City for just £10 million a year ago.
But with the transfer market out of control and fees seemingly rising by the day, Huddersfield fans have made it pretty obvious that they feel Mooy is worth far more than just an £8 million profit.
A tidy and clever midfielder who shone as Huddersfield rose from the Championship to the Premier League before adapting like a duck to water in the top flight, Mooy is arguably the most gifted player in David Wagner’s squad.
It is no wonder that he is attracting attention from clubs looking to reinforce their midfield with an intelligent and hard-working playmaker like the former Bolton Wanderers youngster has become.
But £18 million? That might not even get you Mooy’s standing leg.
