Plenty of Evertonians have flocked to a recent transfer claim on social media this week and it appears many are in agreement.
According to the Sunday Mirror’s recent print edition (12/07, page 69), the Toffees are keen on making a move for Aston Villa centre-back Tyrone Mings during the summer window.
It’s claimed that Man Utd also have interest in the 6 foot 5 colossus and that he could cost up to £30m.
Who's the better English defender?
The 27-year-old only joined the Midlands outfit last summer but has quite possibly been one of their only shining lights of the season, which has culminated in a call-up to the England national squad.
He could have been one of Gareth Southgate’s main options for this summer’s cancelled European Championship.
Despite all this, much of the Goodison Park faithful are completely against the idea of signing Mings, some claiming that he’s massively “overrated” whilst others believe he’d be another Ashley Williams.
Here’s how the rest of the fanbase reacted on Twitter…
Please god no he’s worse than all r centre backs
