Loads of Everton fans have been hailing a transfer link to Lucas Ocampos as The Athletic journalist David Ornstein revealed that the Merseyside club are interested in signing the Sevilla ace in the summer window.
Indeed, the £45 million-valued ace has been enjoying a fine 2019/20 season so far, as he has scored a relatively impressive 17 goals and made a further five assists in 43 games in all competitions, operating from both flanks, according to Transfermarkt.
Does Ocampos start for Everton?
The Argentinian international still has a UEFA Europa League final to look forward to after his Spanish team knocked out Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United 2-1 in the semi-final.
They will now play former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan side, who boast former Premier League stars in the likes of Ashley Young, Alexis Sanchez, Christian Eriksen and Romelu Lukaku.
At 26 years of age as well, Ocampos is arguably entering his prime years as a player, and so maybe this is the right time for Carlo Ancelotti to bring him to Goodison Park.
These EFC supporters hailed the news on Twitter, with one Toffee even branding Ocampos as a ‘superb’ player:
