Fans react on Twitter as Everton reportedly eye January move for Premier League goal machine

By Will Butcher

Everton fans can’t make up their mind on Twitter after reports suggested manager Ronald Koeman will make a January swoop for Troy Deeney.

The Mirror claim that the Toffees will try to sign the striker in the January transfer window and that the club’s new director of football Steve Walsh is behind the move.

The Watford captain was the subject of a £25million offer from Premier League champions Leicester in the summer window as clubs circle for the 28-year-old.

The uncapped striker enjoyed a successful Premier League campaign last season after playing an integral part in the Hornets promotion to the top flight. He formed an impressive partnership with Idion Ighalo, as he found the net 15 times in all competitions.

Some Everton fans believe Deeney has the experience of the English game that would improve the team, while others are unconvinced he has the quality to be a fixture in the side.

Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

The former Walsall attacker has now made 267 appearances for Watford since he joined in 2010 and scored an impressive 96 goals for the London club.

Deeney is off and running for the season after scoring his first goal on Saturday during his side’s impressive comeback against West Ham, which saw them triumph in a 4-2 win after being 2-0 down.
