Many Everton fans on social networking site Twitter feel that Mario Lemina would be a very good signing for the Merseyside club.
According to reports from Sky Sports, Everton are interested in signing Southampton midfielder Lemina in the summer transfer window.
Marco Silva needs to find a replacement for Idrissa Gueye who left the club to join French champions PSG yesterday.
Everton are also trying to fork out a deal for the versatile Mainz midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin, but Sky Sports reports that Lemina is also a target for the Toffees.
Here are some of the best reactions from the Everton fans on Twitter:

Don’t mind that, would maybe have gone for a more experienced centre back. But Lemina is good. https://t.co/31BhUJnOgp

The 25-year-old doesn’t feature in Ralph Hasenhüttl’s long term plans.
He joined the Saints in 2017 from Serie A champions Juventus, and despite producing some eye-catchy performances at St Mary’s, he has always struggled for consistency.
According to a recent report from The Express, the Southampton midfielder is available for a fee of around £20m.
However, he is a highly talented midfielder and has age on his side to still reach the potential he once showed during his time at Juventus.
