Everton fans aren’t too fond of the latest transfer news, as reports in Portugal make the Toffees heavy favourites to land William Carvalho.
William Carvalho was one of the standout performers in Portugal’s Euro 2016 run, but Everton fans don’t think they need the Sporting CP midfielder.
According to A Bola (via Inside Futbol), Marco Silva wants the towering midfielder at Goodison this summer, after the pair worked together in Lisbon back in 2015.
The report claims the Toffees face competition from Monaco, who are hunting a replacement for new Liverpool signing Fabinho.
Carvalho is a typical tough tackling defensive midfielder, but his rare combination of power and technical ability separate him from other players of that ilk.
Boasting an 89 per cent pass success rate this season, the colossal Portuguese international would bring a little bit of everything to the Toffees midfield.
With plenty of areas in need of improvement though, fans don’t think they need to splash out big on the 26 year-old, hoping they spend their funds elsewhere.

Can’t help thinking if he was top drawer he wouldn’t still be at Sporting Liabon having been touted around for successive summers.

The fact that no one has bought him would ring alarm bells with me

Without being too negative here we have the following players to do the same job: Gana, Schneiderlin, Besic, Beni, Mccarthy. Do we need another defensive midfielder when we dont have a left winger?

Linked with him every summer. Tomorrow he will be linked to West Ham.
