Everton fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to speculation linking the club with a move for Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure.

According to The Guardian, Everton are interested in signing Doucoure from Premier League rivals Watford in the summer transfer window.

It has been reported that the Toffees have made an offer of £30 million, but the Hornets have turned it down.

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.
