‘Not good enough’ – Some Everton fans react to transfer links with £25m Premier League player

'Not good enough' – Some Everton fans react to transfer links with £25m Premier League player – originally posted on Sportslens.com Everton could make a move for Tyrone Mings this summer. As per Express, Carlo Ancelotti wants to improve his team’s defence and he has identified Mings as a potential target. The 27-year-old has done reasonably well for Aston Villa and he could prove to be a decent addition to the Everton back four. However, it won’t be easy convincing Villa to sell the player. Dean Smith’s side paid around £25m for the player a year ago and they will be looking to make a profit if Everton comes calling. The Toffees should look at someone younger with more potential. Mings is not a bad defender by any means but he is not good enough to p...
