Plenty of Everton fans have been loving a link to Fikayo Tomori as ESPN have reported that the Chelsea ace is close to joining the Merseyside club on loan for the new 2020/21 term.
According to the outlet, the English international has attracted interest from a number of teams including Rennes and Newcastle United but Carlo Ancelotti’s side are thought to be in pole position with talks at an advanced stage.
Comparing the stats of Tomori to those of Mason Holgate, Michael Keane and Yerry Mina in the Premier League in the 2019/20 season, the central defender averaged the most tackles, interceptions, key passes, dribbles and crosses per match, as per Whoscored.
Does Tomori start for Everton?
These members of the Goodison Park faithful loved the link to Tomori on Twitter, as they perhaps feel as if the 22-year old could be a key player for them in the next campaign:
