Plenty of Everton fans are loving a transfer link to Samuel Umtiti as Mundo Deportivo have reported that Carlo Ancelotti is looking to bring the FC Barcelona ace to Goodison Park.
As per the Spanish news outlet, the France international was available for transfer in the summer transfer window and the Catalan giants are also open to selling him in January.
Would Umtiti start for Everton?
Umtiti is said to like Ancelotti and the feeling seems to be mutual, as the Italian boss is apparently looking to bring the central defender to the Merseyside club.
His market value is currently only at €12m (£10.9m), and he may well be available for even less as he is one of the highest earners in Ronald Koeman’s team.
Umtiti has a contract at Barca until 2023 and was close to returning to Lyon in a swap deal which would have included Memphis Depay.
Everton fan reaction to Umtiti link
These Blues supporters loved the link to Umtiti on Twitter, as they perhaps feel as if the price tag on the 27 year-old is too good to turn down:
