Lots of Everton fans have been loving a transfer link to Newcastle United ace Matty Longstaff as The Chronicle have reported that the Merseyside club, as well as West Ham United, are looking at the possibility of signing him in the summer window.
As per the outlet, Longstaff, who is now out of contract, is also attracting interest from abroad, namely FC Schalke 04 and Udinese, with the latter apparently his preferred choice of destination.
However, although these teams would not have to pay a transfer fee for the England U20 international, they will still have to pay compensation.
Nevertheless, to potentially get the central midfield player on a free may be a good bit of business if Carlo Ancelotti takes up the opportunity.
Longstaff enjoyed a breakthrough 2019/20 season at St. James’ Park, scoring three goals in 15 games in all competitions, according to Transfermarkt.
Being just 20 years of age as well, the Englishman still has a lot of potential, and to get him on a free transfer may well represent good business.
Would Longstaff start for Everton?
These members of the Goodison Park faithful loved the link on Twitter:

Agreed, english, young and will be out to prove a point – in this market a free agent in a position we desperately need with resale value

Is he a central midfielder? Worth a chance if we also signed a proven main target as well. As some have said he’s young and will have resale value. 💙
