Everton fans react on Twitter to reported interest in PL forward

By Derek Smithson

Everton are reportedly lining up a move for Leicester forward Jamie Vardy – and the club’s supporters are divided on Twitter about a potential move.

The Daily Express claim that the Toffees are eyeing the 30-year-old, despite the England International only signing a new £100,000-a-week deal last summer with the Foxes.

The report details that Ronald Koeman’s side are eyeing Vardy as a potential replacement for their star striker Romelu Lukaku, who is subject to a £100million tug of war between Manchester United and Chelsea.

Vardy is renowned for his tireless work-rate and blistering pace in attack, making him a different player to Lukaku.

He helped Leicester remarkably win the Premier League in the 2015/16 campaign and followed that up wth 16 goals across all competitions last season.

Everton fans are undecided about a potential swoop for the Foxes fan favourite as some feel he could help bolster their frontline, while others don’t believe he is good enough for Goodison Park.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Vardy has enjoyed the fairytale rise of non-league to Premier League football during his career and is now considered one of England’s most senior forward.

He has scored 66 goals in 192 appearances and has become a crucial player during their top flight stay.

Everton may be forced to find a new talisman in attack if Lukaku leaves and he will leave a huge void behind after scoring 26 goals last season.

The Toffees finished seventh-placed in the league table last year and are keen to break into the Champions Leauge spots under Koeman, but will need a prolifc goalscorer if they are to do so.
