Bernard is reportedly one of seven players that Everton are prepared to listen to offers for this summer – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have responded to insist he isn’t sold.
According to the Times, the Toffees would be willing to receive transfer offers for the 27-year-old, who joined the club on a free transfer back in 2018.
The report claims that Everton teammates Gylfi Sigurdsson, Theo Walcott, Fabian Delph, Yannick Bolasie, Sandro Ramírez and Muhamed Besic aer
Bernard being linked with an exit does seem a slight surprise, as he featured fairly regularly last season despite not being a nailed-on starter and is capable of producing some individual moments of magic in possession.
The Brazilian winger, who often switches between flanks, managed 30 games across all competitions in the last campaign.
He made a strong start to life under manager Carlo Ancelotti following his mid-season appointment, but did end up with just three goals and two assists last season.
A selection of Everton supporters on social media have responded to the Bernard speculation to claim they would be gutted if he did leave Goodison Park and feel he should remain part of the squad going into the new season.
Here are some Everton fans on Bernard:
