Many Everton fans have been left buzzing as some transfer news emerged on Donny van de Beek.
As quoted by NOS, Marcel Brands has revealed that the Manchester United midfielder was on their list of targets in the summer transfer window, and he added that ‘it’s hard to say’ whether the Goodison Park outfit will return for him in January.
Should Everton sign van de Beek?
Even though Van de Beek has struggled to get regular game-time at Old Trafford under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, there is no doubt that the Netherlands international has quality. That was emphasised when he was at Ajax, where he scored 41 goals and supplied a further 34 assists in 175 matches over all competitions across five consecutive seasons in Amsterdam (Transfermarkt).
With James Rodriguez now gone, Van de Beek could offer that creative spark in Everton’s midfield which could well elevate Rafa Benitez’s team to new heights.
Everton fans on van de Beek transfer news
These Everton fans were buzzing as the transfer news was shared across Twitter, with one Toffees fan even going as far as to claim that they were ‘made up’ over the latest on the 24-year-old:
“I’d have Donny van de Beek at Everton in a heartbeat. He was unreal at Ajax in the Champions League before he moved to Man Utd. I get the Klaassen comparisons but the team he’d be going into is completely different to the team of 2017.”
“Think he would be a smart loan move in the January window. Has a point prove after having so little time to impress at united. Only stumbling block may be how awkward United may be when trying to strike a deal.”
“Class player, be made up if we got him in January”
“Bring him home come January”
“I’d take him all day, could be KDB to Chelsea to Wolfsburg to City type scenario”
“Loan with an option to buy and we have a deal”
