Loads of Everton fans have been slamming a transfer link to Aston Villa man Tyrone Mings as the Daily Express reported that he is a top transfer target for Carlo Ancelotti.
Indeed, the £20.25 million-valued English international played in a total of 36 games in all competitions for Dean Smith’s team in the 2019/20 season, scoring two goals and making a further two assists, according to Transfermarkt.
Although he did help AVFC escape relegation from the Premier League, Mings’ stats in some key areas were arguably far from spectacular, as he averaged fewer tackles and interceptions than fellow central defenders Mason Holgate, Michael Keane and Yerry Mina, according to Whoscored.
Does Mings start for Everton?
One member of the Goodsion Park faithful even claimed that he would ‘rather have Stones’ back at the Toffees, who has been criticised before for his past errors while playing for Manchester City.
The 26-year old has been previously linked as a possible replacement for Mina.
These EFC supporters slammed the news on Twitter, with one Blue even labelling Mings as ‘awful’:
No way !!!!, defo over rated , rather have stones

Got to be a joke. He’s another Ashley Williams in the making.
