Lampard urged to sign two Chelsea players after Everton transfer comments

Frank Lampard has been urged to sign two Chelsea players after he stressed the importance of new signings at Everton.

Last week, Lampard warned Everton they will face another relegation battle without signings and internal improvement.

The Toffees flirted with relegation last season but a late revival under Lampard helped them finish 16th, four points above the drop zone.

Everton have endured an underwhelming transfer window to date, only signing James Tarkowski from Burnley and selling the influential Richarlison to Tottenham.

Lampard’s side were thrashed 4-0 by MLS side Minnesota United last week and the Everton boss subsequently said new signings would be vital to the club’s Premier League survival next term.

‘As a club, it reinforced the situation in terms of what we need to do with the squad, because it has to be stronger than what we saw,’ Lampard said.

‘There is no doubt about it. When you think of where we were last year, we have lost a big player in Richarlison… we wish him well, but our club now continues.

‘We know there is a void in forward areas, we are short in numbers there. Also, through the team there are things I want to strengthen and I can be honest about that, because a club like Everton has to have a competitive squad.’

Former Everton and Chelsea winger Pat Nevin believes the loan market could be the best option for Lampard and says he should attempt to use his Stamford Bridge connections to sign Conor Gallagher and Billy Gilmour on temporary deals.

‘I think Everton should use the loan market,’ Nevin told BonusCodeBets. ‘They should ask Frank to speak to some of his old colleagues at Chelsea and see if there are any young players left to bring in.

‘They should try to sign Billy Gilmour and Connor Gallagher if they are available. They would make a massive difference to Everton, but they also need a goalscorer.

‘They have Dominic Calvert-Lewin but they can’t depend on him. Richarlison is a gigantic miss, a huge miss for them.

‘I reckon Everton need to sign five quality players. As you can probably tell, I’m quite concerned as lots of Everton fans are.

‘They should use the loan market because you can get some really good players in the market. Frank also needs funds and backing for his squad.

‘All the top players won’t want to go to Everton though as they don’t want to go to a team near the bottom of the league last season.’

Asked about Lampard’s pessimism ahead of the new season, former Scotland star Nevin added: ‘I think it sounds like realism from Lampard, not excuses.

‘I remember a few years ago when David Moyes was at Sunderland and he said a very similar thing and everyone said he was making excuses.

‘I said I liked his honesty and how realistic he was. Hearing a manager say that, you think he’s telling the truth.

‘To some degree yes he is, but in fact he’s saying it to the board. He’s saying: “this is dangerous territory now, the current group was not good enough and they’ve lost a couple of players from that.”

‘Last season, the Everton fans got them over the line without doubt and you can’t do that every single week.

‘There’s some hard work to be done in the transfer window and that’s what that comment from Frank Lampard was about. He’s saying: “we need to get on with it, now!”‘
