The Toffees fan base has voted in their numbers and clearly hope rumours, that emerged in the Daily Mail, suggesting Crystal Palace right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka is a Marco Silva target prove to be true.
Wan-Bissaka rose to prominence out of nowhere at the start of the year when he was thrust into the Eagles’ first team due to injuries at Selhurst Park.
Since making his debut in February, the 20-year-old has cemented his importance to Roy Hodgson, going on to make a total of twenty appearances.
Only once this season has the young star not featured for the former England manager, when he was suspended for a trip to Watford.
Similarly, Everton’s own young charger Jonjoe Kenny played a string of games under Silva this season when Seamus Coleman was ruled out with a foot injury.
The 21-year-old, who emerged from the Goodison Park academy, had some solid performances deputising for his elder teammate but did not do enough to win the support of the manager or fans, as he was instantly stripped from the side when the Republic of Ireland international returned.
In a recent poll carried out on Football FanCast, 68% of Everton fans deemed the 20-year-old Palace product a better long-term option to replace Coleman than Kenny.
