Everton fans have their doubts about the potential signing of Santiago Sosa from River Plate.
Everton have already agreed a fee of around £13 million with River for the midfielder, who has been scouted as a star of tomorrow.
But there are some Everton supporters who feel that Sosa’s signing would be an error.
The 20-year-old has only made a limited amount of first-team appearances in Argentina, and Everton fans are questioning whether he will ever develop into a starting player at Goodison Park.

The Turkish league and Argentinian league is hardly quality is it all good banging in 50 goals a season vs part timers but then not score 10 in the pl— tony (@Tony_Corner_EDL) June 3, 2019
Seems a lot for a guy who has made just three senior appearances for River Plate— Nick Clark (@ToffeeClark) June 4, 2019

Onyekuru all over again— Adam Banks (@Adbanks90) June 3, 2019
Which translates to.... Everton will buy him then loan him out for 3 years then sell him because we can’t get a work permit sorted for him!!— Ste Q (@stequirk) June 3, 2019
Getting a work permit for Sosa could be difficult for Everton, as the youngster is not yet capped for Argentina’s national side and he has not fully broken into River Plate’s starting line-up.
Everton already have a strong contingent of South American players at Goodison Park, and Sosa would be another exciting talent to add to their squad.
