Reported Everton transfer target Steven N’Zonzi impressed in Sevilla’s 2-1 Champions League win against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Tuesday night, and Toffees fans are keen for the club to sign him to replace unpopular Ronald Koeman buy Morgan Schneiderlin.
The Merseyside outfit were heavily linked with a move for the former Stoke City midfielder in January with Sam Allardyce likely to have wanted to partner him with Idrissa Gueye in the middle of the park, but no deal materialised.
Schneiderlin has come under huge criticism from the Goodison Park faithful for his displays this season following a bright start to his Toffees career in the second-half of the 2016/17 campaign, and he has dropped out of the starting XI in recent weeks.
Everton supporters were quick to have their say on N’Zonzi’s latest display via social media, and while one said “for all those Blues doubting that N’Zonzi is the man to replace Schneiderlin, here’s a sample of his work”, another said “N’Zonzi’s a baller”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Yes but can he do it on a cold Monday night in Stoke? #ohyeshecan
