Everton are reportedly interested in Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have responded with sceptical comments about the speculation.
According to Sport, the Toffees are joined by Premier League side Everton in the hunt for the 30-year-old this summer.
The report details that the shot-stopper wants to lead the Camp Nou ahead of next season, but will cost at least £17.8million to prize away.
A selection of Everton fans don’t believe he will end up at Goodison Park next campaign and find it hard to believe why the Merseyside club are targeting another goalkeeper.
Jordan Pickford is already the number one option in goal under manager Marco Silva, while they have already completed a deal to land Jonas Lossl on a free transfer this summer.
It seems odd that the Toffees would be on the search for another experienced goalkeeper and the Barcelona man wouldn’t come cheap.
Cillessen wants to leave La Liga champions Barcelona after playing a back-up role, but he’s still a quality player and helped Holland finish runners-up in the Nations League tournament.
He’s strong with the ball at his feet and at an international standard, so it will be intriguing to see where his next step is.
Here are some Everton fans commenting on the Cillessen speculation:
Convinced he just links any Barça back up player to Everton now???, not a chance that Cillessen is coming here…
