Everton fans split as Brands “closing in” on Rojo move

Loads of Everton fans have been reacting to the latest transfer news, as it looks like they may have found their new centre back.

While the signings of Richarlison and Lucas Digne will inject some of the pace and youth that the Toffees have been sorely lacking, most fans would agree it will all be for nothing if they don’t sign a new centre back.

Phil Jagielka is loved by fans but is just not good enough anymore, Mason Holgate doesn’t look ready to start regularly, and Michael Keane seems to be getting worse rather than better.

According to The Manchester Evening News, Marco Silva and Marcel Brands have finally identified the man to solve these problems – Manchester United’s Marcos Rojo.

The report claims the Argentinian, who scored an incredible late winner for his country against Nigeria this summer, is “closing in” on a switch to Goodison, and the Red Devils could command a fee of £30m

Rojo had huge potential when he moved to Old Trafford, but his career there has stagnated after a mixture of injuries and some poor form.

Loads of fans have been reacting to the rumours, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
