Frank Lampard is reportedly considering signing free agent Tom Rogic for Everton.
The Lowdown: Kudus first?
The Times journalist Paul Joyce has shared that the Goodison Park outfit are set to sign attacking midfielder Mohammed Kudus from Ajax on loan, with a view to a permanent deal.
He would be their sixth signing of the summer transfer window so far, after James Tarkowski, Ruben Vinagre, Dwight McNeil, Conor Coady and Amadou Onana.
The Latest: Rogic considered
As per The Daily Record‘s live transfer blog (10:30am), Lampard is also ‘considering’ a move for Rogic to add to those attacking midfield ranks. He left Celtic as a free agent at the end of last season.
However, interest in the Australia international is thought to be ‘high’, and he is ‘keen’ to sign for a new club quickly to get him best prepared for the FIFA World Cup in the winter.
The Verdict: No-brainer
To get someone of Rogic’s experience on a free transfer is surely a no-brainer for the Merseyside club.
Hailed as a ‘special‘ player by The Athletic’s Celtic correspondent Kieran Devlin, and a ‘magician‘ by Hoops legend Chris Sutton, Rogic enjoyed a glittering career at Celtic Park, scoring 46 goals and making 49 assists in 272 appearances for the club (Transfermarkt), winning a staggering 17 trophies in the process.
Adding both Kudus and Rogic would really add some guile to the Toffees’ midfield, and may even cover for a lack of striking options up front.
