Everton fans discuss quotes from one-time target Abdoulaye Doucoure

Many Everton fans have been reacting to fresh comments to French TV channel Canal+, via The Mirror, from 2019 summer transfer target Abdoulaye Doucoure, who has suggested that he will be allowed to leave Watford for the right club this summer.

He said: “We are arriving at the end of a cycle. I think I can still progress massively. I can still do great things. Obviously, if I am pushed to change clubs, it will be to make a step forward.

“If a club of a high level comes and makes an interesting offer for me, of course the club will let me go easily.”

Should Everton reignite interest in Doucoure?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Liverpool Echo decided to pick up on the quotes from the 27-year-old around six months after the Merseyside club saw two bids for the Frenchman rejected, when Marco Silva was at the helm.

It remains to be seen whether current manager Carlo Ancelotti would still be keen to bring him to Goodison Park in the summer, and whether the midfielder considers the Toffees to be “a club of a high level”.

Did he really play for us?! No Everton fan has managed to name all of these obscure Toffees players….

Can you name this obscure former Everton player?

To be fair to Everton right now however, they are only five points adrift of Chelsea in the final Champions League qualification spot and in good form, so a top-four finish certainly can’t be ruled out just yet.

There are certainly those that would be keen for Everton to reignite their interest in Doucoure, with one supporter suggesting director of football Marcel Brands must be a fan having made two summer bids.

Others decided to mention current Toffees players with one asking whether they could send Morgan Schneiderlin to Vicarage Road as part of the deal, while another is already dreaming about him alongside Andre Gomes in the centre.

That is probably a little harsh on the former who is starting to come into his own under Ancelotti, with FFC saying earlier this week that he could throw a spenner in the works when Gomes and Jean-Philippe Gbamin are back from injury.

While others rate him, they were concerned about how much the 27-year-old could cost.

One mentioned a fee of £30-40m, and if he is to cost that much you’d have to wonder whether he’d be worth it – especially if Ancelotti has a reduced budget available to him with a new centre-back surely the priority.
