Reports have recommended a possible swap deal to send Xherdan Shaqiri to Everton, but Everton fans are completely against the idea.
It’s been an extremely infuriating season for Everton fans, and above all else they are fed up of the club’s underwhelming transfer business.
The Toffees splashed out on several players last summer, but the fans are looking for quality rather than quantity, and they don’t like the links to Shaqiri.
A report from Swiss publication Blick sent the rumour mill into overdrive this week when it suggested the Stoke City winger has a relegation clause in his contract.
The report claims the winger can be purchased for just £12 million this summer, and now The Boot Room has proposed a possible swap deal.
The bargain release clause for a 68-cap international will certainly have plenty of teams interested, so the report suggests Everton use youngster Kieran Dowell to sway the odds in their favour.
Dowell has been a hit on loan at Nottingham Forest this season, scoring ten times and adding four assists from midfield, so could certainly interest Stoke as they drop into the second tier.
After an unsuccessful summer spending spree, Everton fans are now leaning towards giving the youth a chance, and it seems they’d rather give chances to the likes of Dowell, Nikola Vlasic and Ademola Lookman than sign superstars like Shaqiri.

????????. Let's get Kevin, Geri and Ross back while we're at it…but not give Lookman ir Dowell a go. People talk about the 'managerial merry go round' and they're right…but it's the same with failed players.

Signing Shaqiri would hinder Vlasic and Lookman badly. No thanks. I'd rather have one of those lads given a real decent run in the team.
