Frank Lampard might have new selling point for Everton in transfer market

Liverpool FC

Everton have got a huge job to do in the summer, an absolutely massive one.

The club came very close to going down and did so for a number of reasons. Looking back at what happened this season, the club was hit with a perfect storm. There was the appointment of Rafa Benitez and the fans tried to back him but, unfortunately, results count and that put Everton on the back foot. We have had a lot of disappointments, a lot of suspensions and we had injuries to Yerry Mina and Dominic Calvert-Lewin in particular – his loss cost a lot of goals.

The Arsenal game saw Everton pick a different team and the lads have put a lot of effort in over recent months. But it also highlighted issues – things like set pieces. Arsenal can play football through you, they have players who can pass the ball around, but three of their goals came from corners. So set pieces are clearly something Everton need to work on.

Frank Lampard now has time to work with this squad and if I was him I would use that time to get stuck in, to try and put my ideas across to see which players have a future with me. Moving forward over the summer I think what supporters really want to see is, for any new signing, you want them now – you don’t want to see them at the end of pre-season. Everton have done this summer after summer after summer, bringing in players too late who then can’t start the season as well. Frank Lampard will want the players he wants but they also have to tick the boxes for the club. They have got to be willing to improve themselves, they have got to fit into the Everton DNA.

It is going to be difficult. Last year we finished tenth but everyone around us bought better players. This summer, Newcastle United will have a lot of money, Aston Villa have started spending money, Leeds United might start spending money because of the situation they ended up in,

And teams we expect to be ahead of will be after the same type of players. It is at that time Lampard can go to those players ‘look at this fanbase, Read more – Liverpool FC
