Lots of Everton fans have been left happy with a transfer update involving Josh King.
As per Football Insider, the Goodison Park faithful are looking to sign the former AFC Bournemouth striker on a long-term deal in the summer transfer window.
Should King start for Everton?
His current contract at the Merseyside club expires at the end of the 2020/21 term, with Carlo Ancelotti’s team looking to extend it before the season finishes.
King has not been able to make much of an impact for the Toffees so far since his Deadline Day arrival from the Cherries, with a mere five games and 67 minutes of football in total played for his new side (Transfermarkt).
However, a player with a proven pedigree in the Premier League, the Norway international can be useful as a back-up to Dominic Calvert-Lewin, and so signing him on a long-term contract makes a lot of sense for the Blues.
Everton fan reaction to King transfer update
These EFC supporters were happy with the update on the 29-year-old on Twitter:
“Ancelotti has had time to judge him, if he wants to keep him then go for it”
“He’s done it in the Prem and at the very least can be good for rotation if we’re in Europe next year.”
“If Carlo and Brands want him it’s good enough for me”
“If Carlo sees value in him, then yeah. With system now seeming to rely on the counter attack, it seems like his speed would be useful… if he gets the minutes to flex it.”
