Plenty of Everton fans have been reacting to a transfer update on Thierry Small.
As per Football Insider, Southampton have made contact with the Goodison Park faithful over a potential deal to sign the left-back before the summer window ends.
Should Small get more first-team opportunities for Everton?
The Merseyside club would be likely to receive a compensation fee of £5m should he make the move to the Saints, but a number of other clubs including the likes of Manchester United, Aston Villa, Arsenal, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are all queuing up for the young talent.
Small has been able to sign pro terms since turning 17 years of age on August 1st due to his ‘immense potential’, and the Toffees have tabled a ‘very generous’ contract offer for the Englishman, which he has since rejected.
However, despite all of the top teams linked with his signature, it seems to be Southampton looking the most likely to sign him, leaving several Blues supporters questioning whether he would be making the right move.
Everton fans on Small transfer update
These EFC fans reacted to the exit claim as it was shared on Twitter:
“So he left us to go to Southampton? Weird.”
“Southampton wake up lad”
“Don’t think that was the kind of move he was looking for when he left Everton.”
“Thought the lad wanted first team football for a top 6 club?”
“If this goes ahead, classic example of a very promising teenager taking daft advice from their agent.”
