‘Would eat up defenders in the Prem’, ‘not a chance’: Some fans react to Everton links with £44m speedster

A number of Everton fans and some neutrals have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on the report claiming the Toffees want to bring highly-rated Porto winger Jesus Corona to Goodison Park this summer.

Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton are one of several clubs linked with the Mexico international, according to Portuguese outlet A Bola.

As well as the Goodison Park side, the likes of West Ham, Inter Milan, Roma, Sevilla, Valencia and Schalke are all said to be eyeing the 27-year-old.

Corona joined Porto in 2015 from Dutch outfit FC Twente on a four-year deal for €10.5million (around £9million) and has made 211 appearances, registering 26 goals and 51 assists.

This season, the attacker has played 41 times in all competitions and, along with two goals, has claimed an impressive 17 assists.

The report claims that Corona has a buyout clause of €50million (around £44million) and that Porto want the entire amount in his clause despite their need to move players on due to FFP regulations.

A versatile player with pace, technique, accuracy, ambidexterity and a keen eye for a shot, it’s little surprise to see him linked with several clubs including Everton.

But what do fans make of the report? Here is some of the social media reaction from Everton supporters and neutrals:
