Many Everton fans have been left fuming as some transfer news has emerged on Ivan Perisic.
According to a report from earlier in the week by L’Interista, which has since been shared by EFC DAILY on their Twitter page, the Goodison Park faithful have ‘probed the ground’ about a potential move for the Inter Milan winger, along with AC Milan and AS Roma.
Should Everton sign Perisic?
Perisic is one of the most decorated players of his generation, winning the UEFA Champions League as well as several of the biggest league titles in European football with some top clubs (Transfermarkt).
However, he is 32 years of age now, certainly past his best and hardly the type of signing to take the Blues into a new era under Rafael Benitez.
Given that both Andros Townsend and Demarai Gray moved to Merseyside in the summer transfer window as well, wingers should not be a priority for the manager either when it comes to strengthening his squad in January, with right-back perhaps a much more pressing need, as well as the middle of the park.
Everton fans on Perisic transfer news
These Toffees fumed as the transfer news was shared on Twitter, with one supporter even going as far as to claim that Perisic is a ‘finished player’:
“He’s about 56”
“He must be nearly 40….planning for the future our Brands!”
“We’re not and it would be a hard pass for me.”
“What are yous gonna do for that spare 15 mins a year when he retires? Link him to a coaches job here?”
“No thanks, he’s old”
