Some Everton fans have slammed an update from Alan Myers, where he relied information that club insiders have dismissed reports linking the Blues with a move for Joshua Zirkzee in this window.
As per a tweet from the sports news editor, the Goodison Park faithful are not currently pursuing the Bayern Munich teenager, despite previous reports suggesting that they are in talks to sign him during this month’s window.
Should Everton sign Zirkzee?
Despite being at the tender age of just 19, Zirkzee has already broken into the first team at the reigning Bundesliga and UEFA Champions League holders, making 17 appearances in total in all competitions since the start of the 2019/20 term, some valuable experience that could be useful if he were to play under Carlo Ancelotti.
He could also have provided some sufficient cover for Dominic Calvert-Lewin if he were to get injured or start misfiring for a long period of time.
Nonetheless, it seems as if a move for the striker will not happen in January, which has not gone down very well with some supporters of the Merseyside club.
Everton fan reaction to Zirkzee update
These Toffees slammed the update on Twitter, with one Blue even going as far as to call it ‘stupid’:
“If true, might as well say goodbye to European football for next season. Obviously we can’t be that serious about progressing further”
“Seems stupid really, we are lacking in strikers, and he would fit Brands’ model that he wants to create. Especially if Kean doesn’t come back and they are talking of selling Bernard who is another forward option and Tosun is nowhere near good enough.”
“Quite frankly this needs to happen, even if on loan. We are in an unbelievably good position in the league going into the 2nd half of the season. If we try to get through the rest of the campaign with Tosun as our only back up to DCL, we will rue this missed opportunity for years.”
“We need another striker if we are going to push top 4”
“Fabrizio got one… Wrong?! Please… Say it ain’t so..”
“Shame really, thought we needed another striker. Thoughts?”
