Many Everton fans would like to sign Josh King as they reacted to a tweet from Simon Johnson regarding the Bournemouth ace.
According to The Athletic journalist, King is highly in-demand, with Serie A clubs Fiorentina and Torino as well as Europa League holders Sevilla reportedly holding talks and making enquiries about the availability of the Norway international.
Should King start for Everton?
However, King has apparently opted in favour of a move back to the Premier League following the relegation of the Cherries from the top flight at the end of 2019/20.
The transfer window for domestic deals for EPL players such as the 28-year old runs until October 16th, so there is still time for the Merseyside club to negotiate a possible transfer.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side have reportedly been interested in a potential move for King before and so they may revisit their interest given that the striker allegedly wants a move back to England’s top flight.
Over the course of his career, King has been a consistent scorer in the EPL, with two seasons in which he got into double figures and 48 goals in 161 games at that level, as per Transfermarkt.
These members of the Goodison Park faithful would like to sign the Bournemouth forward if given the opportunity before the domestic window officially shuts, with one fan describing him as “miles better than Tosun” in reference to the Turkish striker with just 10 goals in 51 games for the club:

All day long, good player who can cover 2-3 positions equally well.
