Everton fans react as report says they’re scouting Bordeaux striker Josh Maja

Ignazio Genuardi has claimed on Twitter that Everton have scouted Bordeaux striker Josh Maja, and Toffees fans on Twitter have been reacting to the link with the former Sunderland man.

The 21-year-old left the Stadium of Light for Ligue 1 football during the 2019 January transfer window, and has impressed for the French top flight club this term.

According to Transfermarkt, Maja has scored five goals and provided a further two assists in 16 league appearances – across 587 minutes – which is a pretty impressive return.

Would Josh Maja be a good Everton signing?





He showed his goalscoring prowess with the Black Cats too, scoring 17 goals in 49 games for the Wearside club before his exit.

Everton may have the likes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison impressing up front right now – they have 18 goals between them this term – but Moise Kean, Cenk Tosun and Oumar Niasse have just one between them in 2019/20.

Plenty of Toffees supporters have been reacting to the link with Maja, with some comparing him to the aforementioned Turkey international…

While some fans were keen, not everyone was with one fan feeling it would be too sign to sign a player who isn’t even a regular starter at Bordeaux, and another suggesting he is no better than what they already have.

Did he play for Everton? Simple question but a lot tougher than you think…

Did this footballer play for Everton?

Another suggested they could do with a more experienced striker rather than another youngster, given they already have Calvert-Lewin, Kean and Richarlison in their ranks – probably a fair point.

In other Everton news, Marcel Brands may soon have a decision to make on 20-year-old target who can be the club’s next Kurt Zouma
