Everton: Leander Dendoncker on Toffees’ transfer wish list

Everton: Leander Dendoncker on Toffees’ transfer wish list -Everton News

Everton want to sign an extra midfielder this summer and Frank Lampard has Wolves’ Leander Dendoncker on his transfer list, according to reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano.

The Lowdown: Dendoncker’s contract

Having joined the West Midlands outfit on a permanent deal in 2019, the 27-year-old has gone on to make 154 appearances for the club, with 120 of those coming in the Premier League.

The Belgium international signed a contract extension in 2020 and has now entered the final 12 months of this deal, although the Old Gold have the option of extending his stay by another year.

The Latest: Romano’s news

With a current market valuation of £25.2m, Wolves would be unlikely to let Dendoncker leave on a free transfer upon the expiry of his deal at Molineux.

Romano has shared the latest news involving the Belgian, linking him with a move to Merseyside.

Taking to Twitter on Friday morning, the reliable journalist claimed: “Everton want to sign an extra quality midfielder. Frank Lampard has also Leander Dendoncker in the list, he’s appreciated by board and manager. Everton, ready to explore this move in the next weeks. #EFC

“Contract with Wolves expires in 2023, with option for further season.”

The Verdict: Good signing

With strong statistical similarities to Toffees midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure, Dendoncker could slot right into Everton’s midfield beside the Mali international, having ranked in the 92nd percentile for blocks and the 80th percentile for pass completion rate among positional peers in Europe’s top five leagues (via FBRef).

Described as a ‘big character’ and a ‘top player’ by Wolves manager Bruno Lage, the 27-year-old could prove to be a useful voice in the dressing room at Goodison Park.

Therefore, if Everton can secure his transfer for a well-priced fee, this could be a shrewd signing for Lampard.
