Everton fans have taken to Twitter to react after French outlet Nice-Matin reported that the Toffees are interested in signing OGC Nice winger Allan Saint-Maximin.
The French forward enjoyed an eye-catching 2018/19 campaign, taking to the pitch in a Gucci headband and displaying his vast array of skills to get the Nice fans up from their seats.
In this era of ‘big 6’ dominance, has finishing 7th become as good as winning a trophy? The Pl>ymaker FC squad have their say in the video below…
Saint-Maximin, 22, managed to score six goals and record four assists in that season to help Nice to a respectable seventh-place finish in Ligue 1.
Crystal Palace and Newcastle are also reportedly interested in signing the mercurial wide man, whose emphasis on performing skills on the wing is akin to that of Wilfried Zaha and Yannick Bolasie; the latter will be returning to Goodison Park once his loan spell with Anderlecht ends.
Saint-Maximin is definitely an exciting name to be linked to, so let’s take a look at what the Everton fans on Twitter have been saying about the rumours…

Another right footed winger to go with the six we already have… seems plausible

This guy has amazing pace. Would love him at our club, although his form 2nd half of the season has been average in a team scoring less than 1 goal a game. Best used as a winger, as doesn’t seem to know where the goal is when played as a striker.

He stinks. Super selfish, tries all sorts of stupid stuff all over the place, loves to blast shots into the 30th row, no situational awareness, awful decision maker…but unreal athleticism and occasionally pulls stuff off. Still young I guess.
