Loads of Everton fans have lauded their reported interest in Adrien Rabiot as Calcio Mercato claimed that the Merseyside club as well as Manchester United and Newcastle United are interested in signing the Juventus ace in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Indeed, one member of the Goodison Park faithful on Twitter claimed that he would sign Rabiot ‘all day over Hojbjerg’, as the Southampton man has emerged as a transfer target for Carlo Ancelotti over the past couple of days.
Who should Everton sign?
Comparing the stats of the 25-year old in the Serie A to the Danish international in the Premier League so far in the 2019/20 season, Rabiot has been dribbled past less times, and has also averaged more attacking dribbles himself, while having a higher pass success percentage, according to Whoscored.
The central midfield player has also won a relatively impressive 4.6 duels per game in Italy’s highest division so far in this term, and has also averaged 1.5 tackles and one interception per match (via Sofascore), showing his defensive qualities too.
These EFC supporters lauded the transfer news, as some cited that the Frenchman could be a better option than Hojbjerg in the current market:
Huge upgrade on Højbjerg 👍

All day over Holberg if I had to decide between the two.

Watched his last few games for Juve. Looks ideal for us and, of course, an instant improvement on the current crop.

Class player. Similar to Gomez though ?
