Loads of Everton fans have been lauding a transfer update involving a possible swap deal with AS Roma involving Bernard and Robin Olsen.
In an exclusive interview with LAROMA24.IT, the agent of the former, Adriano Spadotto, claimed that it was possible for a potential swap to happen between the two clubs, while also revealing that he has spoken with manager Paulo Fonseca about the possibility of his client moving to the Serie A team.
Should Everton sell Bernard?
Olsen is only on loan at the Goodison Park faithful from Roma at the moment, but there may well be an option to make his move into a permanent one which may see Bernard move in the opposite direction.
The potential swap deal could make sense for both sides, as Olsen could provide some much-needed competition to Jordan Pickford whereas Bernard could go and play more regular first-team football.
Everton fan reaction to update on Bernard and Olsen
These Toffees supporters lauded the transfer update involving both players on Twitter:
“Getting Bernard off the wage bill and using half what his contractual wage is now on a solid back-up keeper would be a good bit of business.”
“Should be all over the Bernard Olsen swap deal. Gets a solid GK in at a fraction of Bernard‘s wages.”
“Roma just need to chuck in 14 million to that deal and I’d take that in a heartbeat”
“Well worth it considering Bernard’s wages”
“Olsen plus cash for Bernard. Frees up loan space also. Gets Bernard’s high wages off the bill. Makes sense”
