Some Everton fans have been left bemoaning a transfer update on Donny van de Beek.
Speaking earlier on in the week to Ziggo Sport Voetbal (via The Daily Express), which has since been shared by The Everton End on their Twitter page, the Manchester United ace’s agent Guido Albers has revealed that him and his client opened up discussions with the Goodison Park faithful over a potential move: “We took the initiative to find a club and our search ended up at Everton. We opened talks with Marcel Brands and Farhad Moshiri.”
Should Everton sign van de Beek?
Given that both James Rodriguez and Gylfi Sigurdsson are yet to play a game for the Merseyside club so far this season (Transfermarkt), van de Beek would have been a smart signing to fill in the vacant number 10 role.
Even though he has had his problems at Old Trafford, there is no doubt that the Netherlands international has quality, emphasised during his time at Ajax, where he scored 41 goals and made a further 34 assists in 175 matches in total over all competitions across five consecutive campaigns (Transfermarkt).
Everton fans on van de Beek transfer update
These Toffees supporters bemoaned the transfer update as it was shared on Twitter, with one Blue even going as far as to claim that they were ‘gutted’:
“I was always impressed with him at Ajax, a bit like a Cahill but with better technique.”
“Would have actually been all for this. He’s wasted at United.”
“There’s a player in DVDB. He needs to leave to revive his career. I’d love him at Everton.”
“May be true but I’ll never accept Everton being a step down for anyone. Would have been a cracking signing.”
“Would have been a boss signing for both Everton and van de Beek that. He’s far too good to be only playing 15 games a season him”
