Everton fans get excited as Rafinha is linked with a move to Goodison

Everton manager Marco Silva has finally got his transfer spending underway.

The Portuguese coach, who has succeeded Sam Allardyce as boss, has recruited two new players so far.

Richarlison recently arrived from Watford in a big-money deal to boost the attacking department.

Meanwhile, the club have found Leighton Baines’s replacement in the form of Lucas Digne from Barcelona.

Everton continue to be linked to numerous names, particularly midfielders as the club are believed to be open to bringing in a central figure.

According to Twitter account @EFC_Insider, the Merseyside outfit have been offered Barcelona midfielder Rafinha.

The 25-year-old, who is valued at £25.2m by Transfermarkt, came through the youth ranks at the Catalan club, but has struggled to establish himself as a regular in the team.

It may be time for the Brazilian to test himself with a new challenge elsewhere, but it would be a surprise if Everton was the destination.

On Reddit, some fans reacted to the Twitter rumour with plenty of excitement.
