Everton fans react to audacious Forsberg link

Everton fans are absolutely loving the links to Red Bull Leipzig’s Emil Forsberg, after reports claimed they are eyeing a swoop for the playmaking star.

Several teams have expressed an interest in Leipzig’s Forsberg, and Calciomercato claim Everton are considering a swoop for the 26 year-old.

Forsberg has attracted interest from Liverpool and Arsenal in the past, so winning the race for his signature would be a major coup for the Toffees.

The Swedish international struggled with injuries last season, but at his best he is one of Europe’s elite playmakers.

The Leipzig star featured in Sweden’s heart-breaking loss to Germany on Saturday, winning two aerial duels, completing two dribbles and making one key pass.

The 26 year-old grabbed just five goals and four assists last season as he struggled with injuries, but racked up eight goals and an incredible 19 assists in 30 Bundesliga appearances the season before.

Everton are of course expected to undergo somewhat of a squad overhaul this summer, as Marco Silva and Marcel Brands look to cut the oversized squad and thus trim the wage bill.

A swoop for Forsberg would likely mean the end of Davy Klaassen’s Goodison career, and fans have been discussing a move for the Swede on Twitter.
