Everton fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to react to reports after the Toffees have been linked with a move for Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori.
According to reports from The Telegraph, the Toffees are interested in signing Tomori on loan. Carlo Ancelotti is waiting to see if the Blues are willing to loan out the defender.
Everton are looking to bolster their defence this summer. Last season, they conceded 56 goals in the Premier League, and needless to say, Ancelotti wants to add depth in that region.
The Toffees have earmarked Tomori as an option, but they are yet to find out whether Lampard would be willing to send him on loan.
Many Everton fans have taken to Twitter to express their reaction. Here are some of the selected tweets:
Would be a smart move. Branthwaite can stay in the team and Gibson go on another proper loan. + we would save some money which we can invest in the midfield.

Is it just me that feels this is just another make up the numbers signing?
Like for most the year didn't Zouma play ahead of him?
We keep signing average players who don't stand out when we really need 4 or 5 top level players who improve us.
Need more experience

On loan? Sure if there is an option to buy but without that? Give me a break.

Only if option to buy is included…

Tomori is a very good talent

Rennes are also interested in signing the young defender. But Everton have a good chance of landing him. In fact, Chelsea would be encouraged to send him to Everton keeping in mind that Kurt Zouma did well very well on loan at Goodison Park in 2018.
Tomori would be a good signing for the Toffees. He is young, quick, comfortable on the ball and possesses a very good passing range.
The Toffees were also interested in signing Gabriel but it seems the Brazilian is heading towards joining rivals Arsenal instead.
