Many Everton fans have been reacting to transfer news from Football Insider as the outlet reported that League One side Blackpool are in talks over the possible signing of Beni Baningime on loan for the 2020/21 season.
As per the outlet, the Tangerines are looking to strengthen in the centre of their midfield, which is where the youngster plays.
Does Baningime have a future at Everton?
Indeed, Baningime played in 16 games in all competitions for the Merseysiders’ under-23 side in the 2019/20 campaign from the middle of the park, from where he supplied one assist, according to Transfermarkt.
However, with the likes of Jean-Philippe Gbamin, Andre Gomes, Tom Davies, Fabian Delph and Gylfi Sigurdsson in Carlo Ancelotti’s senior squad, perhaps Baningime would struggle for game-time in the first team at Goodison Park.
At just 21 years of age, the DR Congo man still has time to grow and develop in his position, and a loan move elsewhere would arguably help his development.
These members of the Goodison Park faithful on Twitter reacted to the news of Baningime’s potential loan exit:
Good move for him hopefully he can kick on

That's exactly right he's a boss little player just needs a run of games the performance he put in against Chelsea proves he can do it but at the end of the day if ya don't play ya don't improve

Hasn’t been given a proper chance unfortunately

Robinson is going for 2mil. It’s a cheap back up. Especially if teams are struggling financially. Beni couldn’t even make the bench after restart. Even with 2 goalies on the bench. So we now need to give every youngerster a run of games to see if they’re good enough
