Everton fans split over Plattenhardt move

Everton are interested in signing Hertha Berlin defender Marvin Plattenhardt in this summer’s transfer window, as covered by Sky Sports News earlier this month.

The Germany international entered the 2018 World Cup off the back of a fine season at Hertha – registering eight assists in 38 appearances for the Bundesliga outfit during the 2017-18 campaign.

Plattenhardt is very much the modern-day full-back when considering that he can both attack and defend effectively, which is so important in the Premier League.

It would be fair to say that the 26-year-old struggled to make his mark against Mexico in Russia on Sunday afternoon, however, as Germany suffered a shock 1-0 defeat in their opener.

Plattenhardt was not the only one to struggle in a Germany shirt, but his performance has led to some Everton fans doubting whether he would be a good signing this summer.

That said, there are still plenty of Everton supporters who want to see the defender make the move to Goodison Park in this summer’s transfer window.

A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Premier League club’s fans can be seen below:
