Many Everton fans have been left fuming as Fabrizio Romano has dropped a transfer update on their pursuit of Joshua Zirkzee.
As per a tweet from the Italian football journalist and transfer guru, the Bayern Munich man is getting closer to moving to Parma, with the deal at its final stages as the Serie A club wait for an answer from the current Bundesliga and UEFA Champions League holders.
