Everton are fending off interest from Tony Pulis' Middlesbrough side for the midfielder, but Toffees fans want him kept at Goodison Park.
Some Everton fans have urged Marco Silva to keep Mo Besic out of the clutches of Middlesbrough, after his performance against Bury.
The Toffees only managed a 1-1 draw with their League Two opponents last night, but Besic was one of the players to catch the eye.
The Bosnian midfielder was in the thick of the action, and has done his cause to stay at Goodison Park no harm.
Besic was loaned out by Everton to Middlesbrough last season, and Tony Pulis’s side are understood to be keen to bring him back to the Riverside Stadium.
However, Everton fans appear to want Besic to stay, as they feel he could have a role to play next season.

Besic deserves a mention, he’s ran the game from that deeper role second half. #evertonlive— David and Donetta (@davidanddonetta) July 18, 2018
Besic shows how to play holding role and has broke out on a great run there- schneiderlin hasn’t ever done anything remotely like that— reids cross, GRAY! (@forgedaboutitt) July 18, 2018
I'd love no besic to make it here. That no look pass there.— David Parkinson (@DaveParky14) July 18, 2018
I like Besic, if he could just stay fit he'd a very good squad player. It's a big IF though and whether he wants guaranteed first team football every week. Hope it can work out for him here.— Paul McAllister (@p_mcallister123) July 18, 2018
Besic is a far better than schniederlin— lukeEFC (@skywalker_88) July 18, 2018
Besic for me he was the only midfielder in the second half who wanted to take the game to them, A full pre season and games he would grow massively as a player, tenacious in the tackle and a good passer of the ball imo— Paul (@murph1588) July 18, 2018
Besic is better than Tom Davies, yeah I said it. I don’t get what Davies offers other than just running around. Besic isn’t great but wants the ball, drives forward and tries things. Looked like he finally broke into the team 2 years back until his injury. Looks fresh and fit— Der Ketwig Kaiser (@DerKetwigKaiser) July 18, 2018
I know it was only bury but besic looked class when he come on before! hope he stays fit an gets a fair chance— Andy Harrison (@andyharrison_1) July 18, 2018
Besic impressed at Middlesbrough last term, and he looks to have carried that form into Everton’s pre-season.
The Toffees already have a considerable amount of midfield options, but whether Besic will be able to fight his way back into Silva’s plans remains to be seen.
