Everton fans have been reacting to reports that have linked the club with Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot.
Could Everton seal a coup for Rabiot?
The Toffees have recently appointed a new manager in the three-time Champions League winner Carlo Ancelotti and have won back-to-back games under his tenure.
The 24-year-old recently joined the Serie A giants from Paris Saint-Germain after his contract expired at the Parc des Princes.

A report in Foot Mercato revealed that Rabiot’s mother Veronique, who has looked after Adrien’s transfer negotiations, has held talks with Everton regarding his interest in a January switch.
Supporters were encouraged by the rumours and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that he can “only hope” that Rabiot would agree to such a move, while another stated that he would be a “great signing”.

Get him in on a half season loan

Loan till the end of the season would be sound

Be a good signing but a risk due to his attitude, but he is a quality footballer https://t.co/kXklTlPn3v
