According to Sky Sports, Everton have been contacted by Premier League rivals West Ham United over a £20m deal for midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin before the January transfer window slams shut on Wednesday, and Toffees fans have been quick to have their say on the rumour.
Sky Sports say that Irons manager and former Everton boss David Moyes wants to sign a new midfielder before the end of the month, with the two clubs said to be in talks about the former Manchester United and Southampton player.
The 28-year-old has made 29 appearances in all competitions for the Merseyside outfit so far this season, but he has often come under fire from the Goodison Park faithful for his performances, which have dropped off from the previous campaign.
Everton supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the story, and while one said “please God make this happen”, another said it’s the “best transfer news yet”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
