Everton are going through a rebuilding period following the turmoil from last season.
The Merseyside outfit went from having Ronald Koeman in charge to then appointing Sam Allardyce, who was later replaced with Marco Silva at the end of the season.
Silva is mulling over his transfer options, and it seems that he is willing to offload one of his defenders.
On Friday, the Daily Mail mentioned that the Merseyside outfit consider offers for Mason Holgate.
The 21-year-old, who predominantly plays at centre-back but can also feature at right-back, joined the Toffees from Barnsley in 2015.
Last season, he made 21 appearances in all competitions, including 15 in the Premier League.
With the long-term futures of Phil Jagielka and Ashley Williams uncertain, as well as the fact the Ramiro Funes Mori has departed, losing Holgate would be a strange move.
It seems that a large number of Everton fans share the same sentiment.
This is crazy. We need to keep Mason. Best CB in the club.

I know we’re having a clear out, but if true this is beyond stupidity. We will be fielding the U11’s opening day of the season.

This would be bizarre given Funes Mori is gone, Williams probably going and Jags losing legs quick

This has to be for loan only. He has potential to be as good as stones.

I hope that this is false, the kids very young and talented. Mistake to let him go

Think that would be an error.

I will be shocked if this is true. He’s got the potential to be a cracking centre half.

Potentially great long term replacement for jags , would be a shame

This would be insanity
