Everton have reportedly made an offer to sign AC Milan midfielder Andrea Bertolacci this summer after the technically-gifted star returned to the San Siro from a loan spell at Genoa - and some Everton fans reacted on Twitter.
Milan bought Bertolacci from Genoa for £17million in the summer of 2015, but he has struggled to prove his worth and managed just 48 appearances during his first two seasons before rejoining Genoa on loan last term.
He now only has one more year remaining on his contract at Milan, with the Italian giants boasting plenty of options in central midfield including Giacomo Bonaventura, Riccardo Montolivo, Lucas Biglia and Franck Kessie.
Everton could be after a central midfielder this summer with doubts surrounding the futures of Morgan Schneiderlin and Mo Besic in doubt, while Wayne Rooney has left to join MLS side DC United.
Some Everton fans reacted to the reported £5.3million move made by The Toffees on Twitter, with the majority unsure over the signing with little known over in England about the Italian midfielder.
Genuinely never heard of him before this link so no idea. Based on the stats I’ve seen, he’s rather average to say the least. But who knows.— UpperGwladysBlue (@UpperGwladysBlu) July 12, 2018
People said the same about Koeman + Walsh. Bertollaci is horrendous.— Paul EFC 86 (@PaulEFC86) July 12, 2018
Never heard of him....Looks too much like Aiden McGeady for me— ray weir (@IHateChang) July 12, 2018
Also, we need defenders. Midfield is already packed. Don’t forget, we’ve also got Klaassen that needs a run in the side.— Ben’s Nerd Words (@benhiggs83) July 13, 2018
No never heard of him, let’s have some proper talent please— Edward Hight (@edwardahight) July 12, 2018
Very cheap. Hardly prolific.— Ian (@MurrayIan1965) July 12, 2018
Trust the boss though.
