Lots of Everton fans have been left blasting reported transfer interest in Jarrad Branthwaite from Liverpool.
As per the Daily Mail, Jurgen Klopp’s men are reportedly interested in bringing the central defender to Anfield in the summer transfer window, along with fellow Premier League rivals Manchester City and Manchester United.
Should Carlo Ancelotti play Branthwaite more for Everton?
The 18-year-old is a promising player and has already played in the senior first team for the Goodison Park team, making five appearances in total over all competitions in the 2019/20 term (Transfermarkt).
Nonetheless, a lot of supporters of the Merseyside club have doubted as to whether he would make the switch over to their bitter rivals, and would thus much rather keep him instead, with Carlo Ancelotti perhaps a key figure in his future development.
Everton fan reaction to Liverpool’s Branthwaite interest
These Toffees supporters blasted the reported interest from the Reds in signing Branthwaite on Twitter, with one Blue even going as far to say that the Englishman is a ‘top talent’:
“Why would he make a step down in his career and join Liverpool?”
“Surely a wind up this why on earth would we sell him to Liverpool hahahah”
“I think he supports Liverpool but we’re never going to sell to them directly. Can’t see him wanting to go to United because he’ll disappear into their reserves and never get a chance. City are a possibility I guess but I’d want decent money for him.”
“They can want all they like, only City could afford him! Top talent”
