Everton Super Fans react to Nabil Fekir transfer report amid contract development
This is part of a regular series from our panel of Everton Super Fans. Each week, Super Fans from our Goodison News Facebook page will deliver their verdicts on the biggest talking points and news stories around Goodison Park.
Everton fans have shared their reaction to a report that the club want to sign Real Betis playmaker Nabil Fekir.
The 27-year-old is currently starring in La Liga under ex-West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini, and his efforts have reportedly piqued the attention of three Premier League clubs.
Spanish online news outlet Fichajes claim Everton, alongside Arsenal and West Ham, are interested in the French World Cup winner.
Fekir’s Real Betis contract runs until June 2023 and he is said to be in advanced talks over new terms, but Fichajes claim a “powerful financial offer” from elsewhere could put paid to that.
With Everton namechecked as a possible destination for Fekir, we asked our panel of Super Fans whether they would like to see him ply his trade at Goodison Park.
Here’s what they had to say…
Fekir is a player that has caught the attention for a number of years, with The Athletic’s Peter Rutzler hailing him as “sensational” in 2018.
Not much has changed since that remark, except a change of clubs.
A switch from Lyon to Real Betis was a surprise given Fekir’s heavy links to Liverpool a few years ago.
Indeed, it was widely reported that he underwent a medical and posed for photos in a Liverpool shirt.
But, despite a somewhat sideways move, Fekir has continued to shine, and he could be the creative key to unlock Premier League defences after previous Blues playmaker James Rodriguez was sold to Qatari club Al Rayyan last month.
