Everton fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to speculation linking the club with a move for Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure.
The report has also claimed that Watford will reject any further bid that Everton may make for the 26-year-old midfielder.
Everton boss Marco Silva worked with Doucoure at Watford, and he knows the 26-year-old Frenchman fully well.
The Frenchman has been on the books of the Hornets since 2016, and he has established himself as an important player for Watford.
According to WhoScored, Doucoure made 34 starts and one substitute appearance in the Premier League for the Hornets last season, scoring five goals and providing six assists in the process.

Below are some of the comments:
Still not sure it will happen but I'm starting to think Doucoure will be a decent signing, allows us to play 433 (probably at sigurdsson' expense) Gives us 5 decent cm options if schniederlin, McCarthy & Besic all leave #efc— Colin Foster (@colin769) August 6, 2019
Watford need to put their haribo’s away and realise it’s a business after all and move on from the past.Sangare is available for 22m so they will have monies left to put towards that winger they after.— tony (@tonyf_efc) August 6, 2019
Use the money for Zouma 45— J Fazakerley (@fazakerley_j) August 6, 2019
Great signings. Doucoure or Zaha, and then we will fight for top 6. #COYB— Everton F.C. (@TrueBluesEFC) August 6, 2019
Aspirational links to Zaha and Doucouré excite most every one of our fans, but any scenario where we’re leaning heavily for any stretch of the season on Holgate or a prospect (Gibson, etc.) is a recipe for potential disaster. #EFC— Rob Vera (@TheRobVera) August 6, 2019
If we can get Zaha, Zouma & Sidibe over the line by Thursday I'll be happy. Not really fussed about Doucoure tbh #efc— Tony Ward (@TWard90) August 6, 2019
Feel more confident of signing Doucoure than signing Zaha for some reason #EFC— Jason Lawson (@1994JLawson) August 6, 2019
I think out of Zaha and Doucourè are not happening! Need to move fast now.— Shaun Davies (@ShaunChiefEFC) August 6, 2019
