Fans of Everton have fumed over a transfer link that has been made between the club and Manchester United’s Tahith Chong.
According to the Manchester Evening News, as cited by the Liverpool Echo, Nathangelo Markelo has urged the Dutch youngster to make the switch from Old Trafford to Goodison Park (via The Gwladys Street), however, supporters were not impressed.

Speak to any Utd fan and they will tell you how bad this lad is

If he signs I’ll cry myself too sleep, he’s not even league 2 standard

Markelo should shut his mouth! He’s not good enough for us and neither chong.

Would you be pleased to see Everton sign Tahith Chong on a free transfer?
Yes, seems like a good young player
No, we should stay well clear of him
The 20-year-old youngster has featured in 12 senior matches for the Red Devils, during which he has neither scored nor assisted for his Manchester club (per Transfermarkt).
Over five appearances in the Europa League and Premier League this term, two of which were starts, the Dutchman has an incredibly poor 6.11/10 average rating (per WhoScored), leaving many not interested in Chong.
Not Premier League Quality at this moment in time

What do we think?
Judging from the few displays that Chong has made for Manchester United so far this season, he is nowhere near ready for first-team action as of yet, with a 6.11/10 average rating (per WhoScored).
What is even more clear is that Everton supporters would not welcome the Dutchman’s prospective signing, even though he would be able to move without a transfer fee (per Manchester Evening News).
