Plenty of Everton supporters have flocked to an emerging transfer report on social media.

According to The Times’ Paul Joyce, the Toffees have submitted a bid ‘in the region’ of £14m for wantaway Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

And it’s caused a divide amongst the Goodison Park faithful with many torn over the prospect of seeing the Dane swap the south coast for Merseyside.

Some believe he’s exactly what’s needed to improve their lacklustre midfield and a “bargain” at that – one fan claimed that he has “grit” and is a “leader”.

Would Hojbjerg upgrade Everton's midfield?

Absolutely!

Absolutely!

Whilst, on the other hand, others slammed the report calling Hojbjerg “toilet” with another supporter going as far as calling for director of football Marcel Brands to be sacked.

The 24-year-old has enjoyed a solid but unspectacular campaign at the Saints, but a lot of his industrious work does indeed go unnoticed.

Per WhoScored, Hojbjerg has averaged 2.4 tackles, 1.4 shots, 1.4 interceptions and 1.3 dribbles per game which is a lot more than what the likes of Tom Davies, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Andre Gomes.

Here’s the best of the reaction…
