Plenty of Everton fans have slammed the latest transfer news as The Independent understand that the Merseyside club are interested in signing Manchester United man Jesse Lingard in the upcoming summer transfer window.
As per the outlet, both West Ham United and West Bromwich Albion would also be interested in obtaining his signature, however, Lingard is understood to want to stay, while Phil Jones is also a man in the frame for David Moyes at the Hammers.
Would Lingard start for Everton under Carlo Ancelotti?
One member of the Goodison Park faithful claimed that the 27-year old would just be ‘another Iwobi and Walcott’, and based off of the stats of the three players in the Premier League so far in the 2019/20 season, he may have a case.
Lingard has not scored a single goal or made an assist, with Iwobi registering just one strike and Walcott also scoring just once with two assists, according to Whoscored.
Each player has made a relatively low goal and assist return in this top flight campaign so far, and so perhaps the claim from the fan is justified.
These EFC supporters slammed the possible signing of Lingard on Twitter, as they perhaps feel that the English international may not justify his potential price tag given his lack of goals or assists:
