Many Everton fans have reacted to recent claims that Carlo Ancelotti is keen to bring Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey to the club this summer.

The Merseyside based club are keen to establish themselves as one of the top sides in the Premier League and Ancelotti is set to receive a backing from owner Farhad Moshiri, who is reportedly poised to hand the Italian a substantial transfer budget this summer.

That budget could be used on bringing in Welsh international pair Bale and Ramsey with reporting that the two players are at the top of Moshiri and Ancelotti’s transfer list.

Bale has struggled this season with Real Madrid, spending time on the sidelines through poor fitness and a lack of playing time when available, whilst Ramsey is struggling to get into Juventus’ starting XI.

Former Tottenham Hotspur man Bale is said to be available this summer, but one stumbling block could be his £350,000 per week contract with Madrid.

Ramsey, meanwhile, moved to Italy last summer on a free transfer from Arsenal, but the 29-year-old midfielder has found playing time hard to come by, despite scoring twice in his last two Serie A games.

Ancelotti arrived at Goodison Park in December and results have improved under the Italian, pushing the Toffees up to 12th in the Premier League standings.

Fans might be expecting more next season though, and they have reacted to the latest reports linking them with Bale and Ramsey, with many claiming the report was nothing more than an April Fool’s joke.
