Norwich City's twin wingers Jacob and Josh Murphy have starred so far this season – and The Mirror claim that Everton are looking to sign both of them.

The Canaries picked up a superb away win at Everton in the EFL Cup on Tuesday evening, stunning Ronald Koeman's men with a 2-0 victory.

Ex-Toffees hitman Steven Naismith opened the scoring with a goal against the club he left in January, before winger Josh Murphy went on a mazy run that finished with an inch-perfect long-range goal to seal the win.

Just a day after Norwich's win, The Mirror reported that Everton were not only keen to sign matchwinner Josh Murphy, but also his twin Jacob.

The twin wingers, 21, have come up through the ranks together at Carrow Road having joined Norwich in 2006, and have both spent time on loan with Football League clubs to aid their development.

Now first-team players under Alex Neil, Josh has hit two goals in all competitions this term, whilst Jacob has found the net four times in a blistering start to the campaign.

After both players were linked with Everton, as well as a host of other Premier League clubs, Norwich fans took to Twitter to give their reactions to the rumour.

Norwich fans urged Everton to stay away from both players, even suggesting that there is no 'buy one get one free deal with the Murphy twins – though acknowledged that a £10m deal for both would be smart business.

From a general perspective, fans are worried that both players are out of contract at the end of the season, and urged the club to sort out new deals for both players, rather than lose them both to Everton in January.

Do you think Everton should move for the Murphy twins?
