Everton fans are excited by the rumours that they could sign Marvin Plattenhardt from Hertha Berlin this summer.
And Everton fans feel that Plattenhardt could be a great addition to the squad at Goodison Park.
Marvin Plattenhardt from Hertha Berlin then. Left back. German International. Sounds good to me! #EFC— David Downie (@daviddownie17) June 12, 2018
Went to watch Hertha vs Koln in April and he looked decent. My mate thought he was brilliant.— Adam Cavanagh (@AdamCavo) June 12, 2018

Plattenhardt? Thumbs up for Mr Brands from me. (He takes free-kicks and has nice hair just like Baines)— Ell Bretland (@EllBretland) June 12, 2018
I watch alot of Bundesliga as well so very familiar with him..good player— Kevin_Everton1878 (@KevinKola_9) June 12, 2018
He's a pretty good defender and been around the German squad for a while. Should be available at a decent price too.— Derek Murphy (@delzer) June 12, 2018
German Baines— Watford are pussies lmao (@Niassesque) June 13, 2018
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.
