Everton fans hate Brands’ planned swoop for Traore

Everton fans aren’t impressed by Marcel Brands’ latest target, as the director of football is reportedly pursuing Lyon winger Bertrand Traore.

According to Football Insider, the Toffees are eyeing a move for Traore, which they will pursue after they wrap up a deal for Andre Gomes.

The outlet claimed last week that a deal for Gomes is close, and they now say Brands will turn his attentions to Traore once the deal for the Barcelona man is wrapped up.

The Lyon youngster, who came through the youth academies at Auxerre and Chelsea before joining the Ligue 1 outfit, scored 11 times last season in all competitions.

He has excellent pace, dribbling and movement, and is capable of playing right the way across the front three, even as a false nine.

However, the Toffees fans on Twitter have not taken too kindly to the rumours, perhaps seeing Traore as a cheap alternative to other winger targets.

Indeed, the report claims a £25m bid is being readied by Brands, a fee that is hardly filling fans with confidence he is a future star and not just another flop.

Take a look at the best of the Twitter reactions down below…
