Some Everton fans have been reacting to a transfer report from The Times as the outlet claimed that the Merseyside club are looking at the possibility of signing either Arkadiusz Milik or Fernando Llorente to replace Moise Kean as he moves to PSG on loan for the rest of the 2020/21 term.
Indeed, both strikers have their merits, as Milik enjoyed a fine 2019/20 season in front of goal for Napoli, scoring no fewer than 14 goals in 35 games in all competitions, according to Transfermarkt.
Does Milik start for Everton?
Llorente has a vast amount of experience playing in the Premier League, scoring 17 times in the division and supplying five assists in 69 matches playing for Tottenham and Swansea, as per Transfermarkt. However, with the Spaniard now 35, some members of the Goodison Park faithful may question whether the veteran striker still has the legs to cope with the physical demands of the English top flight.
Meanwhille, Milik has not played in the Premier League before and is therefore unproven in this country.
These Everton supporters reacted to the transfer report on Twitter, with some fairly mixed replies:
Relax and trust Carlo, end of, I think he just might know a little bit more than us.

We were short of forward options even with Kean there. The area of least depth within the squad. Not easy but we need to find a forward happy to sit on the bench for 70 mins a game but be capable of slotting straight in when required and getting 10+ goals this season.
