Lots of Everton fans have urged the Merseyside club to sign Marc Roca as Sport reported that he could be one of as many as five players from Espanyol to leave in the upcoming summer transfer window following their relegation from La Liga.
As per the outlet, Arsenal, Bayern Munich, Milan and Real Madrid are also interested in securing the services of the £14.4m-valued ace.
Comparing the statistics of the central midfield player in the Spanish top flight to the likes of Fabian Delph, Tom Davies and Andre Gomes so far in the 2019/20 season in the Premier League, Roca has scored the most goals and has also averaged more tackles, clearances, blocks, shots, key passes and crosses per game than the Everton trio, according to Whoscored.
Indeed, his superior abilities both defensively and in an attacking sense could be an upgrade for Carlo Ancelotti in the middle of the park, and he could well be available for a cut price due to Espanyol’s relegation.
Would Roca walk into the Everton side?
These members of the Goodison Park faithful on Twitter clearly want the Spaniard to sign for the Toffees as soon as possible:
