Revealed: 93% of Everton fans want Lookman to start next season

Everton fans have been discussing the links to Watford’s Richarlison, and the overwhelming majority would rather give Ademola Lookman a chance.

With former Watford man Marco Silva still the front-runner to replace Sam Allardyce, the Toffees will surely be linked with a whole host of Hornets players this summer, most notably Abdoulaye Doucoure and Richarlison.

Richarlison got off to an electric start in the Premier League, joining the Hornets last summer and grabbing five goals and four assists, forcing his way into plenty of people’s fantasy teams along the way.

The tricky Brazilian completely lost his way after Marco Silva left the club though, and did not score or assist a single goal after the Portuguese tactician’s departure.

The 21 year-old is 5/1 to move to Goodison this summer, but it seems fans would much rather let Lookman have his shot.

The 20 year-old started just one league match for the Toffees this season, but was superb in his loan spell in Germany.

After joining Red Bull Leipzig in January, the young Englishman grabbed five goals and three assists in just 11 appearances, including two goals and two assists in his final two starts.

Any move for Richarlison would surely be at the instruction of Silva, but fans all agree the new boss would be making a huge mistake, and potentially destroying a future superstar in Lookman.

There is of course Yannick Bolaise waiting in the wings as well, but the 29 year-old has been poor since his injury, and is probably first on the list of players the fans want sold this summer.

A whopping 93 per cent said they would rather Lookman than Richarlison, and you can find the full poll results for yourself below…
