Revealed: Majority of Everton fans would welcome Lindelof with open arms

Everton kickstarted their summer transfer activity with a big-money capture of Watford winger Richarlison.

Now it seems that the supporters want manager Marco Silva to address the problems in defence.

With Michael Keane, Phil Jagielka, Ashley Williams and Mason Holgate within the ranks, it may not appear that the area needs bolstering.

However, there were too many inconsistencies at the back last season, which resulted in the team conceding goals frequently.

Out of the current group, Williams is probably the most likely to be sacrificed, which would pave the way for a new face.

The Daily Mail recently reported that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho needs to offload a defender in order to bring in Harry Maguire from Leicester City.

Victor Lindelof could potentially be axed due to his lack of game time under the United boss.

The Sweden international, who reached the quarter-finals of the World Cup in Russia, made just 17 Premier League appearances last season.

The fact that Mourinho opted not to give him his league debut until two months after his arrival could potentially raise alarm bells, but when we asked you if Lindelof would improve Everton’s defence, the outcome was clear.
