Loads of Everton fans have been hailing the latest transfer news coming from The Voice as they have claimed that the Merseyside club ‘have jumped the queue’ to sign Leon Bailey in the upcoming summer transfer window.
As per the outlet, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United are also interested in obtaining his signature, as Bayer Leverkusen are reportedly willing to listen to offers of around £30 million from teams in the Premier League.
However, one disadvantage that Carlo Ancelotti’s side may have is that they may not be able to offer him UEFA Champions League football, which is what he would apparently prefer.
Nevertheless, the 22-year old could be a good option for the Goodison Park faithful based off some of his stats in the 2019/20 season in the Bundesliga, as he scored five goals and made three assists in 22 games, whilst also creating three big chances and averaging 1.6 successful dribbles and one key pass per game, according to Sofascore.
One EFC supporter suggested an ‘Iwobi swap deal’, as the Jamaican international has averaged more shots, dribbles and crosses in their respective domestic leagues in this campaign (via Whoscored).
Who would Ancelotti start for Everton?
These Toffees hailed the news on Twitter, with one Blue even claiming that the winger ‘would be a perfect signing’:
this guy is everything everton need on the wing. fast. skillful, and has a good pass on him. he would be a perfect signing

I've been impressed every time I've seen him. He plays mainly on the left though were we have options. Wonder if this means we are looking to move on a few (Bernard, Iwobi)
