‘Doesn’t have a bad pass on him’: Some fans react after ‘class’ Everton player is linked with their club

Everton right-back Jonjoe Kenny is reportedly open to leaving Goodison Park in search of first-team football, according to Lancashire Live.

The Toffees academy graduate – who spent last season on loan at Schalke – is believed to be on Burnley’s radar.

And on social media, some fans – of Burnley, Everton and Schalke – discussed whether Kenny would be a good shout for Sean Dyche’s side.

Burnley are in need of reinforcements at right-back with both Phil Bardsley and Matt Lowton out of contract in the summer.

The Lancs Live report says the Clarets have not made an offer for Kenny, but he said to be a target, and in turn the 23-year-old is ready to make the next step in his career.

Kenny has struggled to break into Carlo Ancelotti’s side this term, making just seven appearances in all competitions.

Last season he was thoroughly impressive at Schalke, making 34 appearances in all competitions including 31 in the league.

“I can tell you what, he is already close to becoming a fan favourite here in our stadium,” former Schalke boss David Wagner told i News last September.

“He has done an amazing job so far and scored a wonderful goal against [Hertha] Berlin. He is, for sure, one of the best signings which we have made this summer.”

It’s a shame that Kenny hasn’t got many minutes at Everton this term, especially given how well he did at Schalke last season, and if given the chance he ought to move on for his career’s sake.

Burnley, a Premier League team with a hard-working and respected manager, could be a good shout – but what have fans made of the speculation?
