Many Everton fans have been lauding a transfer link to Maxi Gomez as the Daily Telegraph have reported that the Merseyside club are keeping tabs on the Valencia ace.
According to the outlet, Carlo Ancelotti’s team have made contact with the Spanish side with regards to the availability of the player, and Gomez will apparently be allowed to leave so that they can trim their squad going into the new 2020/21 term in order to cut costs.
Does Gomez start for Everton?
Indeed, the £28.8 million-valued ace has a relatively impressive scoring record at club level, netting no fewer than 70 times and making a further 26 assists in 170 games in all competitions over the last few seasons, as per Transfermarkt.
These members of the Goodison Park faithful lauded the link on Twitter, with one EFC supporter even claiming that the Uruguayan international is the ‘closest we’ll come to ever replacing Lukaku,’ as the former Chelsea and Manchester United man managed to score 87 goals in 166 matches for the Toffees (via Transfermarkt):
Decent player. Closest we'll come to ever replacing lukaku.
