Stoke fans react as Everton eye Harry Souttar
A number of Stoke City fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from over the weekend claiming that Everton are eyeing a move for Harry Souttar.
What’s the story?
The Sun reports that the Toffees are considering potential replacements for Yerry Mina.
The Colombian reportedly has his heart set on a move to Serie A, with Inter Milan and Fiorentina keen. And Everton are open to selling the centre-back for around £21 million.
Duncan Ferguson was reportedly sent to watch Souttar in action for Stoke, who last played on Friday as they beat West Brom.
The Potters are flying high in the Championship right now. And it is clear that many of the supporters view Souttar as one of the key reasons for their success.
Plenty have taken to Twitter to comment on reports that the Toffees are monitoring the Australia international.
Several have insisted that he is destined for the very highest level. And they believe that Stoke should not allow him to leave for anything other than a huge price.
In fact, the smallest fee mentioned by most seems to be £30 million. They are certainly hoping that they can price Everton out of the market.
Of course, the Toffees were incredibly shrewd in the window this summer. And those bargain deals are reaping huge rewards right now.

Perhaps that will leave the door open for bigger spends further down the line. If they want Souttar, that is what they may have to be prepared to do, it seems.
With that in mind, here is what some of the Stoke fans make of the links with Everton…

He wouldn’t leave Stoke for EFC. It would have to be 1 on the big 6.
