Everton fans on Twitter are worried about potentially signing Danny Welbeck.
According to The Evening Standard, Everton are in pole position to sign the 28-year-old Arsenal striker.
Welbeck will be leaving North London on a Bosman this summer after failing to earn a contract extension.
And Everton fans aren't crazy about the idea of taking him at Goodison Park.
Danny Welbeck to Everton.... even on a free he’s overpriced #EFC aiming for another 8th to 12th place finish— Darren Hughes (@DarrenHBreedon) May 24, 2019
Welbeck has been on the pitch 88 times in 5 years for arsenal.— Ged (@Ged_EFC1878) May 24, 2019
Walcott > Welbeck and I’m not even messing here. I’m actually begging we don’t sign him— george (@GeorgeWoodEFC) May 24, 2019
Were not in for danny Welbeck. These rumours are horrendous— Ged (@Ged_EFC1878) May 24, 2019
Ffs he's as much use as a pair of chocolate trousers— Marko Hare (@Markohare_4) May 24, 2019
OMG, NO!— Evertonian Brasil (@EvertonianBr_) May 24, 2019
You can understand the Toffees' fans reluctance. Even when fit, Welbeck, who has netted 16 Premier League goals for Arsenal, probably isn't a world beater.
Plus, he hasn't kicked a ball for Unai Emery's side since November following another injury and it remains to be seen how - if - he bounces back from this latest prolonged absence.
Good player, but to get where Marco Silva's Everton want to be, the Merseysiders should be aiming higher - a lot higher.
