Many Everton fans have been left discussing a transfer update involving their reported pursuit of Joshua Zirkzee from Bayern Munich.
As per a tweet from Sky Sport journalist Max Bielefeld, talks between both clubs are ongoing for a loan deal with an obligation to buy of €10m+ (£8.9m), but it is not an easy transaction financially for the Goodison Park faithful to make.
Should Everton sign Zirkzee?
In light of the update, The Gwladys Street then prompted a discussion as to whether he could be a good addition for the Toffees, mentioning the time he would need to adapt to life in the Premier League and his physical stature being 6 foot 4.
Being just 19 years of age, signing Zirkzee would be a risk, but he has already broken into the first team at the reigning Bundesliga and UEFA Champions League holders, making 17 appearances in all competitions in total since the start of the 2019/20 season, and the cover that he would bring for Dominic Calvert-Lewin may be too much to turn down.
Everton fan reaction to Zirkzee update
These Blues supporters would be happy if the Merseyside club signed Zirkzee after the latest development:
“I’m willing to give him time. I was willing to give Kean time. DCL didn’t start doing well until he was about 23 we should give him all the time and support he needs”
“Really like the look of him! For a 6ft 5in player he’s got quick feet & very mobile! Would be a good investment”
“1. We need cover for DCL 2. Pay is likely to be not much ahead of U23 level 3. The conditionality of the loan will be crucial….obligation to buy, or not? If not, agree the fee now imo. This could signal a preparedness to let Kean go.”
“Get him in”
“Yes, good addition! 19 years of age with very well suited characteristics to play in England. If Carlo wanted to play 4-4-2 or 4-2-2-2 like he did at Real Madrid then DCL and Zirkzee would work well together IMO”
“If he can press and hold the ball up a bit it’s something to build on and guarantees him game time towards the end of matches. I still think we need a CDM/CM experienced player to cover injuries to Allan or Doucoure. The thought of both being out for a game is depressing”
