Everton: Fans erupt as update emerges on Kvaratskhelia move -Everton Transfer Rumours

Flocking to Twitter, many Everton fans have erupted over a fresh transfer update involving Rubin Kazan forward Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.

Rafael Benitez is soon set for his first January transfer window in charge of the club as he takes control of the Toffees’ transfer plans following the departure of sporting director Marcel Brands.

This has led to an incoming signing already as reliable reports claim that Everton have closed in on Dynamo Kiev left-back Vitaliy Mykolenko, who apparently underwent a medical on Friday (Fabrizio Romano).

Everton’s manager isn’t done there, however, as Football Insider have revealed who he is eyeing a move for next. According to their information, the Toffees and Benitez are apparently ‘plotting‘ a move to sign exciting Russian Premier League forward Kvaratskhelia next month.

It is believed that both Everton and West Ham now hold a concrete interest after the Georgia international blew away talent spotters with a brace in his nation’s 2-0 win over Sweden last month.

Everton fans erupt…

Taking into account the 20-year-old sensation’s rising stock, it’s little wonder so many Everton fans are applauding Benitez’ transfer decision, with one fan even claiming he’ll perform a U-turn on his stance on the under-fire Spaniard if his club can pull off the signing of Kvaratskhelia.

Called ‘incredible’ by journalist Romano, the young winger has already scored five goals in just 12 caps for Georgia whilst averaging an impressive 2.7 completed dribbles per 90 at club level for Rubin this season (WhoScored).

That’s more than any Everton player has managed in the Premier League, and while you could argue that the discrepancy may be due to a major difference in the quality of the respective divisions, it could also be an indication of Kvaratskhelia’s vast potential.

Here’s how some Toffees supporters reacting to news that the club are plotting to sign the 20-year-old “baller”:

If Benitez brings him in I will switch to team #BenitezIn. He was absolutely unplayable against Sweden with the national team. One of the biggest talents out there.”
