Everton fans hated last week’s links to Manchester United’s Chris Smalling, but should they target another United defender?
According to reports, Everton are lining up a summer swoop for out of favour Manchester United centre back Chris Smalling, but Everton fans would much prefer a move for his teammate – Daley Blind.
Blind has fallen completely out of favour at Old Trafford this season, but is nonetheless a fan favourite for the composure and experience he offers when he does play.
The 28 year-old Dutchman has started just twice in the league this season, and could be one of several players moved along by Jose Mourinho this summer.
It is no secret that Sam Allardyce is after another defender this summer, perhaps no surprise given the form of Ashley Williams and the age of Phil Jagielka.
Blind’s ability to play anywhere across the back four or in midfield would be a blessing to Everton’s squad, and the fans clearly agree, with 71 per cent voting for a move for the Dutchman.
The Everton boss will certainly be busy this summer, and the fans have clearly decided which United defender they like the look of.
