Plenty of Everton fans have been reacting to the report suggesting the Toffees are in pole position to sign AS Roma winger Cengiz Under.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, the Serie A side may decide to let the 22-year-old go due to a numerous other players in that position, and Blues head coach Carlo Ancelotti is keen to bring him to Goodison Park, having previously wanted him at Napoli.
Tottenham are also reportedly interested in Under, however, Ancelotti’s interest in the Turkey international is believed to be pushing Everton to the front of the queue for the player, who is valued at €30million (£26.5million).
Under fell out of favour under Paulo Fonseca but went on to reclaim his place in Roma’s starting lineup before the Serie A season was suspended, and this season he has made 20 appearances in all competitions, with three goals.
Many Toffees fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the report, and they seem to be happy about bringing Under to Goodison Park. Here is what they had to say:
If Bernard want to go to Roma get a swap deal between the two clubs it would benefit us by cutting a bit of our wage and get player on the right we need

My gues is that Under would be on wages just as high or higher than Bernard.

Keep Bernard I’d take him aswel, he’s a good player

With the economic situation after this pandemic in limbo I reckon players prices will drop by about 33%. That makes him worth €20m. Keep Bernard play Under on right. Walcott to Leeds. Gordon as backup.
